Our volunteering in Africa online course is not for everyone!

 

This training was developed for people who, despite the negative publicity concerning volunteering abroad, still want to work on a project in Africa. But you are aware that as a volunteer you are a link in the chain and you do not want to accidentally do more harm than good.
You want to learn, experience and have fun. But you also want the people you are going to work with to have fun with you and you really want to make a contribution!
So that both you and the people at the project in Africa can look back with pride on a wonderful and meaningful time.

How can volunteering in Africa be responsible and fair?

When you go to Africa to volunteer with the intention to learn and experience and to be sincere about it. When you are not going there to improve the world, volunteering can certainly be sustainable and responsible. In addition, the project you go to has to be a responsible one. You will learn more about all these answers in the training.

Is this training also a practical preparation for travelling to Africa

No, this course prepares you for the social part of volunteer work or internship in an African country. Topics like bonding, social media, responsible projects with animals, and white saviors are covered. We are developing a course on practical preparation for a trip to the African continent!
