Volunteer tourism and Help stays….
Son of Africa will soon be opening its doors to Volunteer Tourism and Help Stays. Through this program, we invite volunteer travelers to join us at Son of Africa where you will work among the boys, in the project and, sometimes, in the local community. Volunteering provides tourists with the opportunity to live and work among people from societies and cultures very different to their own. Our volunteers have the opportunity to increase cultural understanding, social awareness and sense of global responsibility. The African traditions and cultures are something to experience, all with the backing and support of “locals” who can help you understand and guide you in the “African” way. For you as a volunteer, you will take your experiences home with you, and have a much better understanding of real Africa, experience “Terenga”, and know you have helped to support Son of Africa with your work and talents. For Son of Africa, we get to connect with our volunteers from all over world, experience with them the beauty and hardships of Senegal, work to better our project and share the life here in Senegal. We offer many additional tours and excursions which you may book along with your volunteer time. Son of Africa Volunteer Tourism applications are available online by clicking: Volunteer Tourism Application. We encourage you to visit our Volunteer tourism page to find answers to many of the questions you may have as well as contact information. We hope that you will find this experience life changing and rewarding in ways you will always remember.
volunteer tourism provides host organisations/projects with a voice; a means of spreading their message and inspiring long-term social movement and activism
