You’ll focus on disaster relief, with immediate attention given to the reconstruction of schools and other education facilities.

Despite the most recent tragedy, Mozambique is still a beautiful country with a vibrant culture and diversity. Dig your hands deep into your work while getting to know the community.

Where we are based in Mozambique

As a volunteer in Mozambique, you’ll be situated in various communities near the banks of the Buzi River in Mozambique. This will differ depending on when you choose to join us, as well as the length of time it takes to finish up projects within the community. Each of our volunteer placements in Mozambique is unique and was affected in a different way by the cyclone, whether it be ferociously strong winds or flooding.

Many of these communities are in rural areas and survive through traditional agriculture and fishing. Now that their livelihoods have been taken away and their homes have been torn apart, they are in desperate need of your help to rebuild. 


When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Mozambique Arrival Procedures page.
