Did you always dream of volunteering in Africa and do you want to live and work with the local people on an equal basis? Are you looking for a volunteer project abroad where you could use your passion, get inspiration and work intensively with the local people? Meet Africa (Ontmoet Afrika in Dutch) is a non profit organisation that helps you make your dream come true!
Our vision is that people who volunteer in Africa with an open view really get in contact with the local people. This gives you knowledge, inspiration and involvement. We feel this is far better than going there with the idea to have to help them or to show them how things should be done. We can learn from the people in Africa as well as they can learn from us.
We are a small-scale organisation that works cheap and very personal, during preparation of people going to volunteer in Africa as well as in the assistence of volunteers in Africa. Read how Meet Africa distinguishes itself.
Meet Africa started in 2004 and has built a lot of experience in the cooperation with its African partners and in the preparation of new volunteers. In evaluations our volunteers give their total experience on average a 8.9 (out of 10).
Onze visie is dat mensen die met een open blik naar Afrika gaan, echt in contact kunnen komen met de mensen. Daar leer je van, dat geeft inspiratie, en dat leidt tot betrokkenheid. Dat spreekt ons meer aan dan naar het buitenland te gaan met het idee de mensen daar te vertellen hoe het volgens ons moet. Met deze instelling is de kans, dat je vrijwilligerswerk of stage duurzaam is, het grootst.
