Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Hope Development Volunteers is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded in 2009 with offices in Uganda, with operations in Kenya and Tanzania.
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
Hope Development Volunteers is running a skills, talents, culture and hospitality exchange program - In return for your volunteer help; Our African hosts offer food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about their lifestyles.
All our programs involve volunteering with local families around Africa in exchange for free meals and accommodation. This is a fact that money shouldn’t stand in your way and stop you from travelling and giving back to the communities in need.
This is a great opportunity for long-and short-term budget travelers. Many families are willing to host volunteers for a few weeks or even a few days. It does mean spending part of your vacation working, but if you’re interested in cultural travel and language exchange, traveling doesn’t get much more local than literally living with a local family and sharing in their daily activities.
We connect people who want to volunteer in Africa with people who are looking for volunteer help.
The idea behind our free-tailor made volunteering is simple but effective. You tell us your skills and talents 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, talents with the local community; they share their food and accommodation with you!!
