CorpsAfrica Green

Rural communities worldwide live at the front lines of climate change, and nowhere is this more true than for remote corners of developing countries, where people are dependent on the land for economic livelihood. While climate change presents an existential threat to all, it is these communities that are experiencing its profound effects most directly.

CorpsAfrica Volunteers have documented regular droughts in Morocco, deforestation and rising sea levels in Senegal, soil erosion in Malawi, and erratic rain cycles in Rwanda. There is an urgency to provide populations most vulnerable to environmental pressures with tools, strategies and guidance to adapt and build climate resilience.

As facilitators and trusted local advocates, CorpsAfrica Volunteers are ideally positioned to work with their host communities to create, test and implement activities that will offer lasting solutions to negative environmental impacts.

CorpsAfrica Green Projects

CorpsAfrica places immense value on collaborative efforts that bring together the diverse expertise and resources of Development Partners. We believe in the power of synergy—where the collective strength of organizations, combined with the passion and dedication of CorpsAfrica Volunteers, can create a more profound impact on climate change-related projects. By fostering efficient collaboration, we aim to create a unified force capable of responding effectively to the urgent needs of communities at the forefront of climate change. Volunteers have utilized outside innovations such as eco-friendly stoves, charcoal briquettes fabrication, kitchen gardens, crop-irrigating treadle pumps, aqueducts, and solar panels.

 

Waste Management

CorpsAfrica/Senegal Volunteer Bouna facilitated a waste management project where 400 households received trashcans and signed up for monthly cleaning days. 

Water reservoir construction

CorpsAfrica/Maroc Volunteer Saâdia facilitated a bio-constructed water reservoir, which returned irrigation to 50 acres of land and 2,500 walnut and apple trees. 

Locally-Sourced Fertilizer

CorpsAfrica/Malawi Volunteer Mphatso taught local farmers how to make their own organic, locally sourced fertilizer.

Support Our Work

CorpsAfrica addresses two of Africa’s most difficult challenges: creating opportunities for youth and helping rural communities overcome extreme poverty and build resilience. We recruit motivated volunteers to live and work in remote, low-income 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 rural communities to help each other.
