We discussed long-term projects in Africa with CIVS in our last post and would now like to talk about the short-term volunteering opportunities particularly in Africa with CIVS.

Before we start on those, we are proud to say that the long-term projects for next year have been finalized and you can click this link to see the list and possibly select one that you have a calling for.

So, what are short-term volunteering opportunities in Africa?

These refer to those volunteering projects that are meant for people who have limited time or resources for volunteering but still want to take part in volunteering activities beyond just travelling.

It can be for a period of around 2-3 weeks in an environment outside your norm.

You can participate in short term volunteering in Africa with CIVS Kenya as we have different projects with different activities for this kind of volunteer work.

Some of them include:

  • Building fish ponds
  • Constructing classrooms
  • Raising awareness on different conditions and topics, among others

With CIVS, short-term volunteering in Africa starts with an orientation process for the volunteers, usually in groups of between 8-20 people from different countries. We start with this in order to get you familiarized with the environment in which you are going to stay at. This involves the culture , goals of the project as well as CIVS as an organization.

Short-term volunteering in Africa comes with a lot of benefits to individuals who participate in them as well as the community.

What are some of these benefits?

It allows you to learn more about different cultures not just of the host communities, but also the different people from different countries in your group.

It allows you to make new friends and possibly form life-long connections that will be useful for your future development or progress as a person.

Short-term volunteering opportunities allow you to develop new skills and experiences, very different to what you are used to which allows you to broaden your mind.

It allows you to make a difference through applying your skills in areas where the skills are needed.

CIVS Kenya has a variety of them for you to choose from.
