Hope Development Volunteers is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded in 2009 with offices in Uganda, with operations in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ghana, Zambia and Namibia.

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

Many visitors to Africa witness the harsh realities of poverty at first hand.  They then want to help, but are unsure how:

How should you respond to street children begging for food or money?

What are the issues surrounding many orphanages in Africa, and are there better alternative solutions for children in desperate need?

What makes a successful volunteer placement, and what can go wrong if these requirements are not in place?

How can you do something positive if you only have a day or two to spare?

 

Making a difference in the world of those in need is the main goal in life. No matter where we come from or who we are, there are others in more need than you do! So let’s help them together and share the experiences.....

Programs are available in over 100 program sites in 8 countries from 1-24 weeks. These countries are: Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ghana, Zambia and Namibia
