Volunteer in Africa in a wide range of countries across the continent. For anyone on a budget, Morocco is close to Europe and with flights starting at £50 return low season, the community programme in Marrakech is a great first affordable step into Africa.

Health electives in Africa are available in Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Cameroon. Suitable for novice health care students, medicine students, pre-med and student nurses. All placements offer supervision, opportunities for hands on practical work and references on completion.

Building in Africa on-going work is carried out throughout the year in Ghana, Uganda and Kenya. No experience is required other than a willingness to get stuck in and have a go to make things better and install basic facilities where there are none existing.
