What our volunteers say

Shortly before we reached Africa the volunteer agency we were going to work for bailed on us. In searching for alternatives we found your website where we could keyword search for Veterinary and Animal. Multiple options popped up. We volunteered in Malawi doing veterinary relief work and had an amazing experience. Out of the 2 years of round the world travel the 3 months we spent in Malawi were the most memorable. Thanks for helping us find the volunteer opportunity.

Volunteering in Africa is a truly life changing experience! Many well-known, large organizations provide a wonderful introductory volunteer experience, but for anyone looking for an authentic and locally-driven opportunity - V4A is an incredibly valuable resource. The number of postings as well as the breadth and diversity of opportunities ensure that all users can find the right organization with which to connect. Thank you V4A!

I joined Volunteer 4 Africa because I was looking for a professional experience with wildlife. Thanks to your website I was able to find free and affordable volunteer projects. Volunteer 4 Africa was always supporting my search, and they respond to all my enquiries very quickly. I will always keep them in mind for my next projects and I will recommend it to all my friends. Thanks.

Thanks to Volunteer 4 Africa I found the perfect place for my very own volunteer experience - a lovely orphanage in Tanzania. I had the most amazing time caring for those lovely children and discovering this stunning country. I can only recommend that to all of you! Best regards

We spent four weeks in Zambia. Fantastic! When we started to look for a good place where to do our volunteer work, we really liked what we found at Volunteer 4 Africa! When we had any questions, we just emailed and asked Volunteer 4 Africa, and we always got an answer very quickly. We have already found a new project but unfortunately we have to work and earn a little money first! A really good website! Thanks a lot!

I really wanted to volunteer with children in Africa as it had been my dream for ages, but all of them were extremely expensive for a student. One day, I found vounteer4africa.org and saw all the possibilities that I was looking for. One month later I was in Madagascar. After returning home I realised that was the best experience in my life! If you have the opportunity, I say...please, do it!
