who we

Since 2012, we have been helping participants find great volunteer and travel abroad solutions. Africa rural volunteer is a non-governmental and non for profit organization that is involved in organization of meaningful projects and recruitment of Volunteers, interns aimed at addressing the needs of those deprived and helpless in urban and rural communities in West Africa. We aim to influence the whole world by emphasizing the need to volunteer in order to affect lives

While plenty of other companies offer various volunteering solutions, we’re still the gold standard in international volunteering and internships in Ghana, Nigeria, Benin and Togo.  Every Project is built on our commitment to: safety, hassle-free travel and making a real impact.


Volunteering Abroad is a social business, this implies that we  employ a business model to tackle Africa’s  social and environmental challenges.


Our staff are all in-country locals who we train and support, who have been there, experienced the projects and seen what a difference they make.
