Volunteering in Ethiopia

Volunteering in Ethiopia

Volunteering in Ethiopia! Go Volunteer Africa, the leading and largest volunteer travel organization in Africa welcomes you to Ethiopia. Culturally rich country of Ethiopia is the ideal setting for a community volunteer program in the Horn of Africa.

Our Ethiopia volunteering in Ethiopia program is open to all. The main focus of our Ethiopia volunteer opportunities is providing sustainable development to vulnerable communities in Ethiopia. Go Volunteer Africa is working tightly on several community development projects in Ethiopia. The focus of our volunteer work in Ethiopia is aimed at poverty reduction, infrastructure development, education, healthcare and conservation work.

Participants volunteering in Ethiopia will get an opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on their interests and skills. These volunteer opportunities in Ethiopia do not require specialized skills (although these would be an advantage), and we accept volunteers for both short and long-term placements, all the year round.
