Volunteering in Zambia
Kaya has a variety of project options in Zambia. The country has high HIV rates, but lacks the resources in education and healthcare to alleviate these problems on their own. You can provide valuable healthcare advice and assistance, through our health promotion and community volunteering. Additionally, Zambian girls are often forced to support their families instead of receive an education. If you are interested in working in education for communities, try our Teaching and community work project. For those interested in the great outdoors, our lion rehabilitation and release project leads research in continuing protection and preservation of this marvelous creature.
Zambia’s location provides incredible opportunities for your free time activities. Visit the famous Zambezi river and Victoria Falls, on the country’s border with Zimbabwe. In these areas, you can hike through the forest and dare to swim in the devil’s pool at the edge of a sheer drop; or sign up for activities like rafting, abseiling and bungee jumping. In the city of Livingstone, visit the bustling Maramba market and try the completely wacky delicacy of caterpillars!
If you want to travel further afield after volunteering, go on a safari and get the chance to see South Africa’s Big 5, which includes the African lion, the African elephant, the Cape buffalo, the African leopard and the rhinoceros. Go on a ‘walking safari’ in South Luangwa National Park, which boasts the most concentrated wildlife populations in the world. Spend time with other fascinating animals at the Chimpanzee sanctuary and Animal Orphanage near Chingola.
Join us in Zambia on a community or wildlife project to make valid contributions to the long term goals of local projects and explore a world unlike any you’ve seen before!
