Khaya Volunteer Work Programs and Gap Year Africa

“Khaya” means village or dwelling in several African languages – but it also has a deeper meaning, that of ‘belonging’. In Xhosa it also means home or homestead and in Swahili it means boma, which is an enclosed secure area for cattle. At Khaya Volunteer Projects, we make our volunteers feel that they belong. If you choose Khaya to organize your volunteering experience, you will feel secure and well-informed. You will also feel that you belong to the project you decide to work with, as Khaya fits the right people to the right projects.

Volunteers from around the world have the opportunity to uplift and support volunteer projects in South Africa, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zanzibar. Based in Africa Khaya Volunteer Projects assists local partners and projects in Southern and Eastern Africa while focusing on responsible and ethical volunteering.

The volunteering projects we offer are both unique and affordable. With us, you can volunteer with children; communities; sports development; healthcare; wildlife and conservation; and education projects.

At Khaya, we founded several of the projects ourselves, which shows that investing your own time and money in supporting those in need goes hand in hand with running a successful organisation.

Not only is this volunteer work incredibly rewarding, it’s also great to do and experience during your gap year! We can offer you full packages which include volunteering and travelling at great prices.

For those who are interested in gap year programmes and volunteer work, we are aware that travelling and staying abroad is a big step, which is why Khaya commits itself to honest pricing and crystal clear information so that you know exactly what you’re going to get. Ethical Volunteering is our priority and we work according to a certain criteria to ensure that your volunteering efforts and your financial contributions are used in the best way possible.

If you’re looking for great prices, quick communication and personal service, join one of Khaya’s volunteering projects and let us give you an African experience you’ll never forget!
