Local communities. Local volunteers. Lasting impact.
"When I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco, amazing young Moroccans used to ask me if they could do what I was doing - they'd say, 'I'm Moroccan, I want to help my country,' and I had to say, 'Sorry, it's only for Americans.' It was wrong." Liz Fanning, CorpsAfrica Founder.
Founded in 2011, CorpsAfrica is a non-profit organization that recruits and places ambitious Africans in remote, high-poverty communities in their own countries. These men and women live in the community for a year and initiate sustainable projects that fulfill key needs and whose impact and success can be carefully measured, all through a transformative volunteer experience.
"CorpsAfrica provided me with incredible training that helped me integrate into my community. The training gave me the skills to identify needs in the village, and to address these needs through a project." Badr Khouzima, CorpsAfrica Volunteer.
