There are hundreds of Books about taking a gap year, career break or volunteering overseas but one definitely worth considering is Volunteer for Africa: Essential Guide to Volunteering in Africa and Providing Aid for Voluntary Organizations When Travelling Abroad. What separates this publication from others is its selection of projects, fundraising potential and option to get free updates on the web.
Unlike many other volunteer travel resources this eBook focuses on projects where you can participate for free or at little cost. A large number of projects even provide free accommodation, food, and other perks such as certification and training opportunities. A must-have guidebook for budget-conscious volunteers wanting to experience a different culture and country.
If a fantastic selection of free volunteer projects wasn’t enough, by simply purchasing this eBook you will be generating funds for worthy causes. The first two editions raised funds for Kipepeo Community Empowerment Program, Kalahari Meerkat Project, Helps International (HINT) Cameroon, and CERCOPAN (Centre for Education, Research & Conservation of Primates & Nature).
The eBook comes with a cool bonus, namely, free lifetime access to the Volunteer 4 Africa website. This allows purchasers to get projects updates and find out about new projects for many years to come. Keep up to date with the latest volunteer opportunities by connecting with Volunteer 4 Africa on Facebook.
If you are seeking a meaningful and worthwhile volunteer travel experience without an exorbitant price tag attached, you need a copy of Volunteer for Africa. Whether you are interested in wildlife conservation, working with street children, or just want to know where you can volunteer for free, this eBook provides a fantastic selection of volunteer projects to choose from throughout the African continent.
The author is an experienced overseas volunteer with an extensive hands-on knowledge of voluntary projects in Africa. The projects in the eBook have been selected not only because they offer free and low-cost volunteering opportunities, but also because the projects are seen as meaningful and worthwhile. Many of these are smaller, grassroots projects that rarely receive international attention. The author’s support for these projects helps them tap into an international pool of potential volunteers. It also maximizes the benefits for local communities by ensuring as much money as possible reaches the grassroots level of society.
The third edition of Volunteer for Africa is now available through Amazon with other key retailers such Apple, Google Play and Kobo soon to follow. To preview the third edition of the eBook, visit the Amazon UK website and click to look inside.
The first and second editions of the eBook received some favourable reviews across the web and you can read a selection of them on the Amazon UK website. You can also read general volunteer reviews on the Volunteer 4 Africa website.
Stephen Knight is the author of Volunteer for Africa and webmaster of Volunteer 4 Africa – a site offering volunteer jobs throughout Africa.
