Volunteering in Africa as a family is a wonderful way to spend a vacation. Voluntourism is becoming increasingly popular with adventurous families looking for a meaningful vacation which gives back to communities and/or helps the environment. The recommendations below are geared specifically to families, although children should be at least 8 or older to participate.

Make sure you prepare your children for conditions in rural Africa especially if this is their first visit.
