Volunteer Africa volunteers enjoy an extremely unique experience not only in
the work they do but also in the atmosphere they live in. The hard work volunteers put in during the
week undoubtedly warrants some fun and relaxation during evening free time and
on the weekends. During the week we organize a variety of activities for
volunteers in the evenings.

Children and Youth
our Youth Development projects, we aim to enhance the physical, social and
emotional development of children in Africa. Volunteers can get involved at a
local daycare center, participate in the skills and youth leadership training
or participate in our Sports Program and Music, dance and drama.
Child Care Center:
Center provides at-risk children a safe environment in which they participate
in any number of extra-curricular activities. These activities are designed to
provide kids from 3 to 10 years old with creative outlets and opportunities to
make constructive use of their time.
The center is managed by a local teacher with
the support and involvement of volunteers from Go Volunteer Africa. Volunteers help children to practice reading,
writing, arithmetic, and English while making time for various games and
Volunteer Africa also helps coordinate important educational workshops in areas
lacking emphasis in general school curricula such as recycling, nutrition,
hygiene, and self-esteem. This is a fun project for anyone who loves working
with children. The kids are very enthusiastic and always keen to learn, play,
and interact with volunteers.
MDD, Sports & Recreation:
Volunteer Africa’s MDD, Sports & Recreation Program collaborates with local
communities to promote healthy lifestyles amongst local children/youth through
teaching basic skills and tactics of football (soccer) and volleyball, teaching
music, dance moves and drama. Given the lack of adequate recreational opportunities
available to kids in the poor communities, our programs seek to provide at-risk
children and youth with a safe environment where they can practice these
activities in order to make productive use of free time.
addition, we emphasize important core values like mutual respect, trust,
fair-play and self-esteem as well as sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership.
Volunteers contributing to this program will plan and lead practices of
understanding the activity.

communities where we serve have shown great interest in learning English from
our international volunteers, most of whom speak English as a first or second
language. We teach English to a wide variety of ages, ability levels, and

incorporation of a cultural exchange element, which allows locals to learn
about the diverse cultural backgrounds and customs of our volunteers while
enriching volunteers’ own understanding of the local culture.

for kids to study by painting murals that engage students in important themes
concerning general youth development and healthy lifestyles. Depending on the
needs and desires of the schools, themes range from recycling and proper

projects to choose from every week. This
