Description

Volunteer Abroad Missions Zambia: Volunteering Opportunities Volunteering Abroad in Zambia: The republic of Zambia is a landlocked country in south central Africa whose population exceeds 10 million. Due to its high elevation, Zambia has a mild tropical climate. The weather is so pleasant that is has been nicknamed The air-conditioned state Almost one-third of the country is given over to national parks and game reserves, which is home to some of the most abundant animal populations in Africa including big game animals. The major draw to Zambia is the astonishing Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world, dropping over 330 ft below. Zambia is one of the more politically stable countries in Southern Africa with potential to be one of the richest countries on the continent. Today, Zambia is one of the world's poorest and indebted nations with a steady influx of refugees, the effects of HIV/AIDS, poverty and corruption, and food shortages that leaves the country in crisis. In Zambia there are 75,000 children who are homeless orphans, many affected by HIV/AIDS. At least 50 per cent of Zambia's populations are expected to die of HIV related diseases in the next three years. Life expectancy is Zambia is only 32.5 years. Thousands of children in Zambia live in a land where extreme poverty is the norm, many children are orphaned by AIDS, health care is woefully inadequate and public education is substandard and not free. One thing is clear. Children such as these need our help. Our programs in Lusaka and the surrounding towns allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the people, sights, smells and tastes of Zambia. Volunteering in Zambia is a way to totally immerse yourself in African culture. This is a great opportunity to make life-long friends, learn a new culture from the inside out and discover that one person really can make a difference. Volunteer with us and see A Broader View of the World. Requirements: Program Length: From 1 to 12 weeks Program Date: Flexible Start and End Date Work Schedule: Monday-Friday, 8 hour per day Accommodations: Shared volunteer residence or homestay Meals: Yes, 3 meals a day Requirements: 17 years +, open-mindedness to new adventures.
