Volunteering in Namibia

Despite a harsh climate, Namibia is not very poor and has many interesting volunteer opportunities and captivating sites. Individuals interested in visiting Namibia briefly can enlist with agencies such as volunteerflyforgood.com and teach through the summer. The agency arranges volunteer excursions for 3 months during which volunteers can teach computer literacy skills, English, HIV/AIDS awareness and other skills to Namibian children.

Volunteers with experience in conservation or just curios can get to work with wildlife when enlisting with agencies such as African Impact. African impact arranges working holidays taking visitors around several breathtaking locations and arranges for volunteer participation with the Namibian Elephant conservation project.

A great source for both internship and volunteer opportunity in Namibia is elonga-intership.com that has positions including internship in preschool, as an English teacher, at a home for the elderly, NGO among others. Volunteers/interns can also choose from projects at a horse farm, agriculture /farming, journalism and many other each with varying terms.

The ecomamabo project is another great holiday cum volunteer project run out of the Dusternbrook guest farm near the capital. The farm houses a great lodge and visitors can get to see a wide variety of game including leopards, cheetahs, giraffe, hippo, zebra, etc. While there volunteers can run the kindergarten, teach English or any other skills, environmental research or assist with horse training. For a greater cultural experience some organizations arrange home stay with a local family to generate a deep level of interaction.
