Community Development:- “placements might be building a school, setting up a water treatment facility, cleaning the streets or planting trees”
Community development is one of the most diverse and rewarding volunteering experiences, providing volunteers to get involved with a huge range of activities from construction, to teaching abroad and even environmental conservation. Whether you’re working in a children’s home or with remote tribes in Tanzania, community development volunteering offers the chance to discover many different aspects of volunteering and make a truly positive impact on the lives of others.
Bring your community and social development skills overseas and work with leading local grassroots non-government organizations and community based organizations that are creating an impact at the grassroots level. Help advocate, develop programs, monitor and evaluate success.
Many of our volunteers work collaboratively with our local partners to identify areas of need within a community. On occasions this includes providing appropriate technical support to develop practical goals and achievable programs.
Community development volunteering is also a way to have a completely authentic cultural experience as you live and work alongside the local people. Hope Development Volunteers’ projects are incredibly varied, flexible and constantly evolving so you’ll be able to help where it’s needed most and see the real value of your contribution.

Hope Development Volunteers is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded in 2009 with offices in Uganda, with operations in Kenya and Tanzania.
Hope Development Volunteers is running a skills, talents, culture and hospitality exchange program – In return for your volunteer help; Our African hosts offer food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about their lifestyles.
All our programs involve volunteering with local families around Africa in exchange for free meals and accommodation. This is a fact that money shouldn’t stand in your way and stop you from travelling and giving back to the communities in need.
This is a great opportunity for long-and short-term budget travelers. Many families are willing to host volunteers for a few weeks or even a few days. It does mean spending part of your vacation working, but if you’re interested in cultural travel and language exchange, traveling doesn’t get much more local than literally living with a local family and sharing in their daily activities.
We connect people who want to volunteer in Africa with people who are looking for volunteer help.
The idea behind our free-tailor made volunteering is simple but effective. You tell us your skills and talents and we find you a volunteering position that matches with your education, skills and interests. Usually, this only has to take three to five days. (No Program fees, No Accommodation fees, No Food fees) it’s totally a free culture and skills exchange program. You just share your skills, talents with the local community; they share their food and accommodation with you!!
