Volunteer in Africa on a Culture & Community Project
Culture & Community projects in Africa allow volunteers to become immersed in the lives and traditions of their host country while participating in valuable cultural exchange. Culture & Community projects vary, but they always include two key components: immersion into a vibrant new culture and the opportunity to make a contribution in their chosen host community.
