Volunteering Mozambique! Go Volunteer Africa, the leading and largest volunteer travel organization welcomes you to Mozambique. From Tofo’s rustic unspoilt beaches to it’s vibrant marine life and colorful culture, everyone will enjoy this exotic paradise of Mozambique.
Our volunteering Mozambique will introduce participants to palm-fringed beaches and wide expanses of powdery white sand and communities famous for world-class scuba-diving and magnificent creatures that live here – whale sharks and turtles.
Mozambique is one of Africa’s up and coming hot spots, with stunning, white-sand beaches, excellent diving and magical offshore islands. Few destinations on earth can compare to Mozambique. As one of Africa’s most-loved locations, Mozambique offers something unique to those wishing to explore a ‘different’ side to the continent: gone are the game drives and desert tours; in their place, sleepy beach resorts are found beside big, bustling cities such as the nation’s capital, Maputo.

MOZAMBIQUE FAST FACTS
Mozambique, officially the Republic of Mozambique is a country located in Southeastern Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west, and Eswatini (Swaziland) and South Africa to the southwest. The sovereign state is separated from the Comoros, Mayotte and Madagascar by the Mozambique Channel to the east. The capital and largest city of Mozambique is Maputo (known as Lourenço Marques from 1876 to 1976).
Mozambique is endowed with rich and extensive natural resources. The country’s economy is based largely on agriculture, but industry is growing, mainly food and beverages, chemical manufacturing and aluminium and petroleum production. The tourism sector is also expanding.
South Africa is Mozambique’s main trading partner and source of foreign direct investment, while Belgium, Brazil, Portugal and Spain are also among the country’s most important economic partners. Since 2001, Mozambique’s annual average GDP growth has been among the world’s highest. However, the country is still one of the poorest and most underdeveloped countries in the world, ranking low in GDP per capita, human development, measures of inequality and average life expectancy.
The only official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, which is spoken mostly as a second language by about half the population. Common native languages include Tsonga, Makhuwa, Sena, and Swahili. The country’s population of around 29 million is composed of overwhelmingly Bantu people. The largest religion in Mozambique is Christianity, with significant minorities following Islam and African traditional religions.
WHY VOLUNTEER IN MOZAMBIQUE
Ranking fifth among the world’s poorest nations by the World Bank’s GNI per capita data, the reality on the ground in Mozambique is especially challenging. Despite the state’s rich natural resources, arable land and numerous ports, it cannot harness this natural wealth. The result is that 96% of the population lives on less than $10/day.
Charity in Mozambique is a necessity. To lessen the burden, Go Volunteer Africa has been operating in Mozambique for 5 years now. The scope of Go Volunteer Africa is significant as our volunteers work in the development of human capacities, aid in economic growth and help to build resilient communities.
Mozambique is a wonderful and unique place to volunteer for wildlife lovers and anthropology geeks alike. Go Volunteer Africa fights poverty in Mozambique by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change.
Volunteer in Mozambique and discover an African country full of adventure – turquoise water and well-preserved corals, on the one hand, and a fascinating cultural mix, on the other. And no matter if you’re rather drawn to its coastline or its colonial-style architecture, there are many causes for you to support either way!
Help with the research of local dolphin and whale shark populations and support the conservation efforts for Mozambique’s marine life. Combine your passion for the ocean with childcare and educate local school classes about the importance of conservation.
