Volunteers have been an important part of Akany Avoko for our entire 50 year history. The program is meaningful and affordable and therefore usually booked up for more than a year in advance.
Our 6 international volunteers live on-site in the Volunteer House and assist in childcare and provide enrichment activities for all the children. Some volunteers teach French or English and help with homework. Special projects and even academic internships can be arranged.
Volunteering is hard but rewarding work. And though volunteers are expected to work at least 25 hours a week, there is also vacation time to explore the unique natural and cultural wonders of Madagascar.
Please feel free to send our Volunteer Coordinator an email to ask questions or check on availability.
