The main goal of our Volunteering in Rwanda program is to make a positive impact in the lives of the people you meet during your once in a life time journey to Rwanda. Experience meaningful travel while working hand in hand with local communities and empower locals.

Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda’s stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in Africa. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains.

Rwanda is a country in East Africa comprising barely 10,000 miles, Rwanda is one of Africa’s smallest countries. It borders BurundiDemocratic Republic of the CongoTanzania, and Uganda. Rwanda is landlocked other than its western border of Lake Kivu. Its capital city, Kigali is picturesque with many sights and delights.

If you are looking at doing something more meaningful on your adventure travels or business trip to Rwanda. Go Volunteer Africa recruits volunteers for locally-run community, conservation, teaching, building, business development, and social projects around Kigali, Butare, and Musanze in Rwanda.


There are many ways to volunteer your time, as well as your skills, to help out. Depending on the season, we always have a list of much needed services of volunteers within our projects around Rwanda. Go Volunteer Africa works closely with each volunteer to ensure comprehensive preparation, including both an understanding of the people with whom you will be working with, and all considerations necessary for traveling to Africa.

Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer projects in Rwanda are safe, reliable and affordable and can accommodate all ages. The Rwanda volunteer program is  a collaboration between Go Volunteer Africa and the under-served communities of Kigali, Butare and Musanze where we serve. We are committed to meeting the needs of our communities, and to placing developmental volunteers in worthy programs that provide safe and life-changing experiences.
