This international development non-for-profit organization has several open positions at the moment including Project Advisor, Business Development Advisor, Communications Advisor, and many more. And these are spread across several countries. Think Ghana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Eswatini, and more.

And we don’t need to tell you about the treasure trove of local experiences these opportunities bring along. Whether it’s by taking a gap year, or to gain work experience, you will also get to experience different world cultures first-hand, explore the incredible African outdoors and make new friends for life.

These volunteer opportunities are a great way to experience the many flavours of Africa and build a meaningful travelogue.
