The first thing you have to know before signing up to volunteer with us, its that...its completely free to serve on any on our projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Why pay thousands of dollars to give back to the community? Share your skills and talents with the community in need and surprisingly they are willing to share their meals and accommodation with you! (No Program fees, No Accommodation fees, No Food fees) it's totally a free culture, hospitality and skills exchange program.

Our mission: To maximize the benefits from tourism and travel of all kinds for the most vulnerable people in Africa and to involve as many people as possible in development work.

The idea behind our free-tailor made volunteering is simple but effective. You tell us your skills and interests and we find you a volunteering position that matches with your education, skills and interests. Usually, this only has to take three to five days. (No Program fees, No Accommodation fees, No Food fees) it's totally a free culture and skills exchange program. You just share your skills, interests with the local community; they share their food and accommodation with you!!

"placements might be building a school, setting up a water treatment facility, cleaning the streets or planting trees"

Community development is one of the most diverse and rewarding volunteering experiences, providing volunteers to get involved with a huge range of activities from construction, to teaching abroad and even environmental conservation. Whether you're working in a children's home or with remote tribes in Tanzania, community development volunteering offers the chance to discover many different aspects of volunteering and make a truly positive impact on the lives of others.

Bring your community and social development skills overseas and work with leading local grassroots non-government organizations and community based organizations that are creating an impact at the grassroots level. Help advocate, develop programs, monitor and evaluate success.

Many of our volunteers work collaboratively with our local partners to identify areas of need within a community. On occasions this includes providing appropriate technical support to develop practical goals and achievable programs.

Community development volunteering is also a way to have a completely authentic cultural experience as you live and work alongside the local people. Hope Development Volunteers' projects are incredibly varied, flexible and constantly evolving so you'll be able to help where it's needed most and see the real value of your contribution.
