Volunteering in Cameroon

Volunteer Programs Cameroon

Volunteer projects in Cameroon are centred in Bamenda and include work in orphanages, clinics and hospitals, as well as primary and secondary schools. Love Volunteers are looking for volunteers to start straightaway as there are opportunities in a variety of fields just waiting to be filled. All of which will make a palpable difference to the lives of people who have been blighted by poverty, un-modernised practices and inequality.

Volunteering overseas - particularly in a challenging environment - is an experience you will look back on with pride. It will bring a greater understanding of, and compassion for, humanity. With volunteers in Cameroon coming from many walks of life and generations, it is often a way of forging new and lasting friendships.

The country is nicknamed “Little Africa” as geographically, Cameroon consists of coastline, mountains, grass plains, forest, rainforest and desert, all of the geographical regions in Africa in one country. Compared with other African countries, Cameroon enjoys relatively high political and social stability. This has allowed the development of a number of growing industries, including railways, agriculture, timber, roading and petroleum. Nevertheless, large numbers of Cameroonians continue to live in poverty.

The challenge of volunteering in Cameroon is one which brings intense rewards. Volunteers in Cameroon are able to make a genuine difference by offering valuable support to communities in need.
