Mzungu Volunteers: Gap Year Volunteer and Adventure
Serving through adventure, the Mzungu Program isn’t about adventures only it's also about being part of a community of like-minded people. Ordinary people, who want to do something extraordinary with their lives, make a difference in the world and make new friends along the way.
A Mzungu Adventure is not just for enjoyment. It is a way for change. Mzungu is guided by a unique commitment to its volunteers and to its communities. To the volunteer it offers safe, responsible travel experiences, exceptional training and career development opportunities, and facilitates the ability to make a real difference. To the local community it commits all project ownership rights and all work is undertaken fully under their direction.
Mzungu is a non-political, non-religious organisation. Mzungu offers educational and life-changing programmes for individuals, families, grown ups and students ages 15-20. Mzungu volunteers come from a range of different backgrounds and from all over the world. Mzungu's aim is to offer the volunteers the necessary assistance required to achieve their goals in volunteering abroad.
