CorpsAfrica/Ethiopia was founded in 2023 with support from the Mastercard Foundation. Ethiopia is known as the “Cradle of Humanity” due to the discovery of some of the oldest human remains in the world. Located in the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is home to numerous ethnic groups, languages, and religions. Despite facing challenges such as poverty, food insecurity, and political complexities, Ethiopia is a resilient nation that continues to make strides in economic development, education, and infrastructure.

Volunteer in Ethiopia

CorpsAfrica recruits ambitious young people to apply their education, build their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and learn more about their countries and about themselves. They facilitate small-scale, high-impact projects identified by local community members, to fulfill key needs.

We expect to begin accepting applications for the next cohort in early 2025.

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.
