Volunteer projects in Victoria Falls
Volunteer in Victoria Falls and support grass-roots community action on a small, focused volunteer programme. Help build strong communities through long term livelihood development, water aid, education and healthcare projects. Support local staff in the delivery of sustainable poverty alleviation solutions to marginalised communities living in a harsh environment.
Volunteer as a Field Assistant in two of Zimbabwe’s most magnificent National Parks. Work alongside dedicated conservation professionals, learn to track and monitor big game and help with infrastructure development and water supply. A unique volunteer opportunity to support the project’s daily operations, and experience Zimbabwe’s true wilderness areas as far more than a tourist.
Combine conservation volunteering with rhinos and elephants on a private conservancy, with community outreach work in marginalised rural communities in Victoria Falls. Through this combination project you will experience two very different regions of Zimbabwe, and learn about the relationship between wildlife conservation and community engagement.
Teaching & Literacy, Victoria Falls
Volunteer as a teaching assistant in a rural school just outside Victoria Falls. Once you have received your training, you will use teaching aids and lesson plans to deliver a structured literacy and life skills programme to primary age children. Learn from teachers and community leaders and assist with conversational English, health and wellbeing and conservation education.
A family trip to Africa would not be complete without experiencing Victoria Falls. We support two projects in the area where families can volunteer together in Zimbabwe’s rural communities. Learn about other cultures, take part in livelihood development projects, and allow your children to experience a very different way of life.
