Do you have a desire to make a positive impact on the world? Our founding principle is to partner with people who are doing a great job at making Africa a better place for all. We do this by giving a % of every travel bookings' profit to sustainable social impact projects.
Some of these organisations could really benefit from your time and skills.
Our volunteer partners provide you with options to spend time volunteering, as an add-on to your travel itinerary OR just come and volunteer. We'd love to introduce you. Give an hour of your day to help in a reading session for primary school children or give a few weeks / months of your time and bring your skills (Coach a sports team, teach somebody how to sew... there are so many options). Volunteering is a great way to really get to know the local people and experience the pure joy that only comes from helping those less fortunate. If you'd like to donate your time while in my country, I'd love to help you find the right initiative. Email me directly on:

I Love Africa partners with ABC for Life in Hout Bay, Cape Town. ABC for Life offer primary school learners support in the areas of English Literacy and Mathematics. Volunteers for this programme can choose to be involved in a number of ways:
Lead shared and paired reading in small groups during the school day
Play educational games with the students
Help full time teachers with easing the heavy load of over crowded classrooms
Tutoring children one-on-one in their individual subject areas
Help develop a fun after school activity for the students
What to expect at ABC - A true life story
"I traveled to Africa on July 20th and I stayed there until Aug 8th, where I volunteered during 10 days (90h).
It was an amazing experience for me, because I could see a reality totally different from mine.
I felt that I could give children hope while I was helping them how to read, or helping to solve a math opperation, or even playing with them.
I learned a lot with everybody, with children and staff; they thaught me about their culture, about the language, about how they deal with life in a poor place, and about how I could help people during the few days I spent there.
This experience made me grow up, and I didn't want to come back to Brazil, I wish I could have stayed more, so I cryed a lot in the last day.
But I intend to come back soon and keep helping all the children and all the people that need support there.
I just have to thank for the amazing time I spent during this volunteering."
