volunteer abroad overseas


The African country less-traveled, Malawi. Only in recent years has it started to gain popularity as a tourist destination. High end tourism is only in small numbers, so you can enjoy this natural paradise without the hustle and bustle. For this reason, volunteering abroad in Malawi will give you a very unique and individual experience. Coupling that with incredibly friendly, heart-warming people, plus breath-taking landscapes and fascinating wildlife, it will be hard to leave.

There is no doubt you will be pleasantly surprised with this tiny, beautiful nation. Called the "Warm Heart of Africa," Malawi locals exude friendliness. It's common for strangers to wave and greet visitors as if they know them. You will be feeling right at home in no time.
There are many opportunities to volunteer in Malawi. If you love working with children and passing on your knowledge, then a VAGT English teaching program at local schools is a great option which requires no previous experience.
Whilst volunteering abroad in Malawi you can have the opportunity to work alongside women who are finding their voice and empowerment through local handmade projects. As with many Africian nations, women suffer from social- economic challenges. VAGT works with a variety of projects to support women and children to improve their living conditions, educational needs, income generating projects and general day care for orphans and vulnerable children.

Volunteer in Malawi and explore one of the smallest countries in Africa that will surprise you with its beauty. With fascinating wildlife, rolling grasslands and the most welcoming and heart-warming people you have ever met, this is a place you should definitely have on your bucket list.
