Volunteering programs and responsible tourism activities in Kenya
According to travellers, international news, and locals, Northwest and Southwest regions (as well as the Far East) of Africa are at high risk because of internal political conflicts. Before leaving home, get as much information as possible about the place you want to visit! Be safe and avoid dangerous areas!
Countries that we currently recommend for volunteering & travelling are:
Click on the announcement you are interested in. Check the date of the publication (some opportunities in Africa might be already expired). If the announcement is still valid, look for the ‘contact details‘ section. There you can find free ways to get in touch with the hosts (website, e-mail, phone numbers, application form). Send the host/organization a message and wait for a reply.
Volunteering in Africa… for independent travellers!
Some of these opportunities are free (you receivefree food and accommodation in exchange for voluntary work). Others require a daily/monthly contribution fee for the food and the accommodation. Remember that many areas in Africa are still developing and volunteering can’t always be a ‘free’ thing.
If you want to have an “impact” but you only have a few weeks to do volunteering abroad, then we recommend you to choose the non-free opportunities: you will contribute not only with your skills but also with your money, especially if you can only volunteer for a short period; this is usually better than paying for a “hotel” or a touristic village owned by foreign agencies.
Our website, Voluntouring, is not a touristic agency and is not taking any agency intermediation fees from the organizations listed below. For this reason, all of your money will go directly to support the NGOs and your stay in Africa. This is also why you will find that the fees for the volunteering experiences, when requested, are generally much lower than the usual.
If you don’t want to leave home without travel insurance, we’re usually happy to recommendthis one.
