Volunteering Nigeria

Nigeria is often called the “Giant of Africa.” This name comes from the vastness of its land, the diversity of its people and languages, its huge population (the largest in Africa), and its oil and other natural resources.  Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa and a vibrant country with huge potential. Yet despite being the largest economy in Africa, there is poverty amid the plenty making for an exciting meaningful volunteer experience. Nigeria is one of West Africa’s crown jewels in which traditions are still respected.

Volunteering in Nigeria is not as dangerous as the media might suggest. The country suffers from an image of constant civil strife, scams and political instability. To dismiss Nigeria based on those criteria is unjust.

Volunteer Work Nigeria

Go Volunteer Africa has teamed up with several non-government charity and nonprofit organizations across Nigeria that are working to improve all areas of Nigerian society, from helping women, children, rural communities and impoverished rural towns and villages.

Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer opportunities are affordable and low cost to give everyone an opportunity to make a difference. The first volunteers will begin their volunteer work in Nigeria in January 2023. The international volunteers will live and work here, supporting local communities in their efforts to fight poverty.
