Volunteering in Algeria! Go Volunteer Africa, the leading and largest volunteer travel organization welcomes you to Algeria. Go Volunteer Africa’s Algeria volunteer program takes you from the Mediterranean seas beaches to Saharan desert excursions as you build sustainable infrastructure and teaching fundamental English lessons to the locals.
The volunteer work in Algeria is mainly teaching English although, and particularly for those who can speak Arabic, there are also development work opportunities. Its very much down to the individual. Algeria is a developing country which still has an image problem, and it receives few tourists, unlike its near neighbor Morocco. Visitors will not find the souks and markets that prevail in Morocco but this said Algeria is a marvelous country to visit with many fascinating sites and places of interest, and genuinely welcoming and hospitable people.
ALGERIA FAST FACTS
Algeria, officially the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa. The country is the largest country by total area in Africa and in the Arab world, and is bordered to the northeast by Tunisia; to the east by Libya; to the southeast by Niger; to the southwest by Mali, Mauritania, and Western Sahara; to the west by Morocco; and to the north by the Mediterranean Sea.
It has a semi-arid geography, with most of the population living in the fertile north and the Sahara dominating the geography of the south. Algeria covers an area of 2,381,741 square kilometers (919,595 sq mi), making it the world’s tenth largest nation by area, and the largest nation in Africa. With a population of 44 million, Algeria is the ninth-most populous country in Africa, and the 32nd-most populous country in the world. The capital and largest city is Algiers, located in the far north on the Mediterranean coast.
Islam is the predominant religion in Algeria, with its adherents, mostly Sunnis, accounting for 99% of the population. Estimates of the Christian population range from 20,000 to 200,000 Algerian citizens who are Christians predominantly belong to Protestant groups, which have seen increased pressure from the government in recent years including many forced closures.
