Unlocking potential
one volunteer at a time

Lasting Impact
From Within

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.

Where We Work

African staff manage CorpsAfrica’s offices in its countries of operation and are responsive the specific needs and local context in each country’s volunteers and communities.

Community-Designed Local Solutions

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.

Support 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.
