How about teaching projects in Africa? Or you could even get paid work in Madagascar and Tanzania. Anything is possible in this vast and multi-layered continent, just waiting for you to explore!

Gap years and career breaks are for anyone and everyone who want to volunteering abroad and with our gap year placements in Africa, you’re spoilt for choice.
