Lalmba is an African word meaning "A Place of Hope".

Lalmba is primarily a volunteer organization. The US-based directors are the only paid employees. All other administrative and medical staff, expatriate field and medical staff are volunteers. This has helped Lalmba accomplish a great deal on a small budget for over 50 years.

We always need dedicated individuals or couples interested in spending an extended period in Africa.  Please look over our list of Volunteer Positions.  If you qualify for one of these positions and can commit to at least 6 months, please fill out our online application to begin.

Lalmba works in remote areas and has very limited international volunteer opportunities. We frequently hear from great people who are looking for volunteer opportunities from 2 weeks to 6 months.

Please note, because of the nature of our organization and the work we do, we are only able to consider volunteers able to spend 6 months or more at our facilities in Africa. Please verify that you meet all of the qualifications for the position before applying.

If you’re interested in volunteering stateside, we would love to talk to you about the ways in which you can help.  Please call us.
