Volunteering in Tunisia

Volunteering in Tunisia

Volunteering in Tunisia! Go Volunteer Africa, the leading and largest volunteer travel organization welcomes you to Tunisia. From broad sweeps of beach overlooked by a tumble of sugar-cube houses, to grand ancient ruins and the vast, rolling dunes of the Sahara, Tunisia encapsulates everything that is enticing about North Africa.

Go Volunteer Africa is looking for volunteers to get involved in our sustainable educational volunteer program in Tunisia. The volunteer work in Tunisia is mainly teaching English although, and particularly for those who can speak French, there are also development work opportunities. Its very much down to the individual.

TUNISIA FAST FACTS

Tunisia, officially the Republic of Tunisia, is the northernmost country in Africa. It is a part of the Maghreb region of North Africa, and is bordered by Algeria to the west and southwest, Libya to the southeast, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north and east; covering 163,610 km2 (63,170 sq mi), with a population of 11 million.

It contains the eastern end of the Atlas Mountains and the northern reaches of the Sahara desert, with much of its remaining territory arable land. Its 1,300 km (810 mi) of coastline include the African conjunction of the western and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Basin. Tunisia is home to Africa’s northernmost point, Cape Angela; and its capital and largest city is Tunis, located on its northeastern coast, which lends the country its name.

In 2011, the Tunisian Revolution, triggered by the lack of freedom and democracy under the 24-year rule of president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, overthrew his regime and catalyzed the broader Arab Spring across the region.Volunteering in TunisiaFrench also plays a major role in Tunisian society, despite having no official status. It is widely used in education (e.g., as the language of instruction in the sciences in secondary school), the press, and business. Italian is understood and spoken by a small part of the Tunisian population. Shop signs, menus and road signs in Tunisia are generally written in both Arabic and French.

Although most of the population are Muslims, more than one-third of them identify as non-religious.
