We recognize that it is a big decision to choose to volunteer and travel in Africa, and we want you to have the experience of a lifetime while you’re here. We deliver far more than just “24/7 support”’
The more comfortable you are, the bigger your contribution to a project, and the better your experience. We at African Impact put a lot of time into selecting and creating the space you will call home.
Creating Global Citizens
Over the years, we have noticed the amazing effects our volunteer programs have had on all involved. While not always tangible or easy to measure, the biggest impact we make is often on individuals!
Truly understanding of the impact of our projects and your contribution, is what makes African Impact the industry leaders. In fact, we believe this is the only way to justify bringing you here.
We are with
you all the way
Our experienced teams are with you every step of the way, both on and off your project, to ensure you have the best experience and help you make the biggest impact possible during your time.
We are excited to announce our latest volunteer project – the Social Impact Experience.
