Food price volatility remains a pressing challenge for many African countries (FAO, IMF, and UNCTAD, 2011). The vast majority of Africa’s population still derives a substantial share of their income from agriculture and low-income households allocate a large share of their budget to food (often more than 60 percent). As a result, large & unexpected swings.
Using your skills to help others or playing a role in wildlife research or conservation can be very rewarding, plus you’ll take home loads of new skills, knowledge and practical work experience. Taking part in a volunteering program abroad can add immense value to your resume and make you infinitely more employable.
The benefits of volunteering in Africa are infinite and we’re very proud of the remarkable things our volunteers have achieved so far and the wonderful relationships we’ve fostered with local community members, leaders and other organisations. Volunteering is also a great way to meet people, especially if you're travelling solo, as you will usually be a part of a larger group during activities on the volunteer projects.
