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!!

How?

Instead of advertising a volunteering position to you, we advertise your skills to our projects. You tell us about your education, employment history and interests and our partners around Africa find you a volunteering position which enables you to draw upon these skills. We maintain an extensive network of projects and enjoy the full support of the local community in order to achieve high quality placements.

Why?

It just makes more sense to have volunteers doing things that they are good at. As a volunteer, you are a resource of development. In order to give you every chance of maximizing your contribution to development, you must be placed effectively. In order to be placed effectively, you need to be working in an area that fits your experience.

What skills are relevant?

Almost all university degrees or college status can be applied to development. Even if you are still an undergraduate, the knowledge you possess has practical applications. Almost all professional backgrounds can be made useful to development. If you have other skills and interests, in many cases they can also become effective tools of development.
