Give back to others, see spectacular sights and cultures and have fun on a life changing experience.


“I feel every aspect of this experience was really great, staff were really friendly and helpful, Swaziland was beautiful and the volunteering projects were varied and interesting – I recommend every aspect of my experience.”

“It was fun volunteering, the children are so sweet, and the tours were awesome. I think All Out Africa is really doing a good job and I will recommend it to others.”

My experience in Mozambique with the marine project was worthwhile, i learned a lot and it might help me decide what to study or concentrate in future, I enjoyed my stay and would like to come back during whale season one time as everyone here is very friendly and because the town is very small you get to know a lot of people coming from all over the world and you bond with this place rather quickly.

Where Your Project Fee Goes

By signing up with us you are donating your time and skills to work directly with communities in need through a structured project.   There are many benefits of volunteering with an organization like ours. Sometimes it is hard to find projects to support in a foreign country that are safe, worthwhile and reputable. When you sign-up for one of our projects for 2 or 12-weeks, you become part of a bigger, sustainable plan that our team of qualified staff has carefully crafted. You will also receive travel and visa support, orientation, a safe place to stay, logistical support, in addition to clear expectations of the work you will do. This is why we charge a fee for volunteering or interning abroad.

Your project fee goes towards a company you can trust, an experience that is worthwhile and an opportunity that will make a positive and sustainable impact on the community you have chosen to serve.
