Do you love education? Wanna change people’s lives and step out of your comfort zone? There are many ways to help as a volunteer in Africa. For example, you can be a language teacher at a local school, or an art instructor, tutor or sports coach! In the rural communities, you can be the person to start a project like a vegetable garden and raise awareness about environmental conservation. You can help schools, non-profits, farms or animal shelters. Empower communities for real change as a volunteer in Africa.
If you decide to travel to Africa as a volunteer, there will be a lot to do in your free time. Tourism is steady in many african countries, especially for admirers of wildlife. Take for example Kenya, in East Africa, where you’ll find nature wonders like the Savannah, lakelands and Great Rift Valley. From it’s capital Nairobi, safaris visit the Maasai Mara Reserve and Amboseli National Park, offering views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. On the other side of the african continent, Morocco is a very popular tourist destination, welcoming travelers from all over the world.
