Starting off with the right essentials
Choosing the perfect volunteer project
Our carefully chosen partner organisations offer interesting volunteering possibilities for everyone, but it is crucial to find a project that suits specifically you. We help you make the choice by giving you detailed information about each project’s character. Go for the best!
We help you prepare your CV and cover letter to apply to the project of your choice. You may already have ideas in mind for your volunteering time, which are great to present in your application. Once you send off your application, it won’t be long before you receive an acceptance letter!
Preparing for your journey
Before you can travel to Africa you must apply for a visa, get necessary vaccinations and health insurance, book your flights, collect information on the destination country, and make sure you take along crucial things. We can help you with all of these, provide you with lots of information and get you ready for a smooth journey.
Connecting you with your personal mentor
One of our mentors will meet you upon your arrival and help you get to your accommodation. She will take you to your project, show you around during the first days, be there for you if you have questions and meet up with you once in a while. The best way to explore a new place is with a local by your side!
Picking out some extras to spice it up
Accommodation in Africa
A good place to stay is crucial for making your volunteering experience enjoyable. We can help you find your own private accommodation, a shared accommodation with other volunteers or place you with a host family in the destination country. Our housing options are safe, affordable and in good locations.
Medical support in Africa
Nobody likes to get sick, especially not when in a new environment away from home. Just in case, we provide a medical service to you that gives you access to a private physician. You can consult the doctor by text message and phone or visit, whenever you may need it.
Local food cooking lessons
Have you always wanted to learn how to cook African food? We can get you in touch with a local cook to teach you all about preparing delicious African dishes. This is also a good way to meet new people!
Private guide and driver
An easy way to move around and visit places of your choice is to go with our trusted guides and drivers, who will take you wherever you would like to go and help you navigate the area like a local.
Access to special places and events
We can get you connected to personnel in hotels, clubs and cultural and event centres, so that you have people to meet up with and make your social life interesting. With good connections you will never get bored!
