Khaya Volunteer Projects provides responsible and affordable volunteer projects. Take a gap year, work with communities and children, teach sport or work with wildlife.
“Khaya” means village or dwelling in several African languages – but it also has a deeper meaning, that of ‘belonging’. At Khaya Volunteer Projects, we make our volunteers feel that they belong. If you choose Khaya to organize your volunteering experience, you will feel secure and well-informed. You will also feel that you belong to the project you decide to work with, as Khaya fits the right people to the right projects. Khaya Volunteer Projects will introduce you to affordable volunteer projects which have been personally chosen by or established by us. You can choose from a number of viable, sustainable, rewarding ventures: working with children, healthcare, sports development, education, conservation, animals – whatever you can think of, that project wants and needs your time and energy! Our mission is simple but resonant: Khaya Volunteer Projects provides volunteering opportunities for international travellers that are both unique and as affordable as possible with high standards of service and facilities. Needless to say, we also prioritise our selected volunteer projects’ needs in ways that benefit both project and you, the volunteer.
Khaya Volunteer projects strives to create employment in Africa by employing local people at several of our projects and giving them much-needed income opportunities.
