Volunteering should be a challenging and an immensely rewarding experience; beneficial to you the volunteer as well as to the community you get involved in. But there can be pitfalls in the shape of unscrupulous agencies that charge large fees to find you a placement, and even bogus projects that don’t exist. Volunteer For Africa aims to help you avoid these pitfalls and guide you through the process of finding a project that suits your interests, whether that involves human welfare, animal conservation or environmental action.
The author is an experienced volunteer with an extensive hands-on knowledge of grassroots volunteer organizations in Africa. The organizations in the eBook have been selected not only because they offer cheap, sometimes free volunteering opportunities, but also because the projects are seen as meaningful and worthwhile. Many of these are smaller, local organizations that rarely receive international attention. The author’s support for these organizations helps them tap into an international pool of potential volunteers. It also maximizes the benefits for local communities by ensuring as much money as possible reaches the grassroots level of society.
Whether you want to volunteer with animals, are looking for something to do in your gap year, or simply want to volunteer for free, this eBook provides a huge selection of volunteer opportunities to choose from throughout the African continent. The eBook also comes with some neat extras including free membership to the Volunteer 4 Africa website. This enables purchasers to get project updates and find out about new volunteer opportunities as they arise. Purchasers also have the satisfaction of knowing that this eBook generates funds for worthy causes.
So if you want to launch yourself into the exciting, educational and life-altering world of volunteerism while contributing to a worthy cause without excessive fees, you need a copy of Volunteer for Africa.

Volunteer Latin America is an environmentally friendly organization that connects independent volunteers to low-cost and free volunteer work opportunities in Central and South America. We aim to connect volunteers to some of the best projects in the environmental and humanitarian sectors.
The environmental projects we offer are as varied and interesting as you might imagine, ranging from organic gardening to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. We also give volunteers the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of humanitarian aid work such as programs that help street children or tackle poverty.
The projects we offer either require the volunteer to make a small financial contribution (participation fee), are free but volunteers cover their own living expenses, or provide complimentary accommodation and/or food.
Projects vary in length from one week up to a full year. Most of the projects we offer are from one month to three months; however, there are opportunities to volunteer for much shorter or longer periods of time.
What separates us from other voluntary organizations is our passion for what we do and our emphasis on ethical and free volunteering. Another key difference concerns our environmental policy, enabling us to be called the ‘greenest’ volunteer advisor on the planet.
Whether you are want to volunteer with animals, work with children, or simply want hear about free volunteer opportunities, we can connect you to suitable volunteer work opportunities in Central and South America.
Please visit our website and the Volunteer Latin America Facebook page to view a multitude of free volunteer work opportunities across Central and South America.
