CorpsAfrica places college-educated African volunteers in rural communities to identify and solve their most pressing local challenges.
Africans are best positioned for collaborative, transformative and sustainable change within themselves and communities.
Since 2013, CorpsAfrica Volunteers and rural communities have identified and designed more than 800 projects centered on local ownership, resilience, and collaboration.
Our volunteers serve in some of the most under-resourced regions of their countries where they venture beyond their comfort zones to learn about their countries and about themselves. By training young Africans to help rural communities identify and solve their own challenges, CorpsAfrica strengthens Africa’s most valuable asset: its people.
Following the recent devastating earthquake in the Al Haouz province and neighboring areas of Morocco, CorpsAfrica is rapidly responding to assist affected communities. We’re equipping and providing disaster relief training to 48 Volunteers and delivering essential resources to communities where we have worked since 2013 to rebuild with resilience.
We thank all of our donors and development partners for supporting CorpsAfrica Volunteers and communities where they work. The organizations listed below are among over 100 partnerships with local, regional and international organizations supporting our work.
CorpsAfrica addresses two of Africa’s most difficult challenges: engaging youth and helping rural communities overcome extreme poverty. We recruit and train motivated volunteers to live and work in rural, under-resourced areas in their own countries. They collaborate with the community to design and implement small-scale projects that address their top priorities and, by doing so, gain the skills and experience that lay the foundation for personal and professional success.
CorpsAfrica trusts youth and communities to help each other.
