EDGE of AFRICA, volunteering done right, since 2007.

At EDGE of AFRICA we are combining a visit to breath-taking countries in Africa with a life-changing volunteer experience.
Discover the colorful heritage, cultures and traditions Africa has to offer. As one of our volunteers, you can rest assured that you will be making an actual difference to our volunteer projects. We are a small passionate organisation, and we truly our volunteers and their contribution to our programs.

As winner of multiple awards, we accommodate all ages and nationalities, and guarantee an authentic, African experience in a safe and beautiful environment.

At EDGE of AFRICA we have formed strong bonds in the local community.

Our volunteer projects are run entirely by volunteers and our small EDGE of AFRICA team.

We have become respected in local communities and have a strong ethos of community empowerment and environmental restoration.

Our team

We are a small team, dedicated to our project commitments and making volunteer experiences unforgettable.

We choose team members who are passionate for Africa’s heritage.

We are a hands on and rely on a growing network of enthusiastic volunteers. Close relationships with local people in every project field are carefully nurtured.

We also have dedicated and caring people to run our volunteer accommodation and provide our volunteers with an unforgettable stay.

I always hope that EDGE of AFRICA volunteers leave knowing that they have contributed to something worthwhile, they have learnt about beautiful Africa and taken away life long memories from this breath-taking continent.
