Volunteer in Cameroon, is a safe Central African Republic bordered to the west by the Gulf of Guinea. One of the most diverse countries in Africa, Cameroon is often referred to as "Africa in miniature". Cameroon has everything you would expect from the African continent; tropical rainforests, deserted golden beaches, great expanses of desert, vast lakes and savannah, and volcanic mountains in-between.

The volunteer program goal is to give international support to local organizations helping needy children and young people throughout south west Cameroon. Our program focus is on community development, health, agriculture, housing, feeding and educating these needy orphans and street children. By implementing sustainable programs and working with the community, our projects work to strengthen the present living conditions to allow all orphans and struggling street kids a chance to survive the crisis of poverty. With our volunteer programs we allow you to discover the wonders of Central Africa, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work.

This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural areas in Cameroon, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
