Volunteers are needed to teach English, mathematics, art and drama in a local primary school.
Health workers—both professional and non-professional—are needed to help in a local clinic to assist in the treatment of simple diseases.
Volunteers will realize that working in Africa is a bit challenging but well worth the time. They will benefit from the experience of working with adults and children from a culture quite different from their own.
Many people cannot afford to go to school and don’t have basic health care so we need hands-on help in different fields.
