Volunteer work in African orphanages can make a large impact on both you and the orphans themselves. We recommend going for eight weeks or more if you are doing a project that involves social work.
Orphanages in Africa can take many different shapes and sizes. Many have children as old as 18 and as young as babies. These children are in need of educational support, care, and friendship, which local staff are often to busy to offer them on an individual basis.
