Project Luangwa does not run an official 'for profit' volunteer scheme. When we advertise for a volunteer you can be sure that we need your skills and that you will make a difference. We do not charge but do expect that you cover all your own expenses including airfares, transport in and around Mfuwe, accommodation and food.
So what can I do?
You'd be surprised at the skills we need.
Techy Stuff - someone to design us a new website.
Arts and Crafts - at the Women's Craft Workshop we are always on the look out for someone to come and teach a suitable craft skill to local women. This may vary from sewing to printing techniques such as lino cutting and card making or artist welding  - basically making anything that is sellable. We are particularly interested in finding someone who knows how to work with leather, artists and experienced lino cutters. Whatever your skill, if you'd like to help, please get in touch.  Someone to work with the new cafe and teach cake making etc and even someone to help install a barcoding system. 
Office help - There are times in the year when we are particularly hard pushed to keep up with the office work and deal with all our sponsored students. December through to the end of February is one of our busiest times, but also later in the year in May and August and   throughout the year we need someone to help with general office work. 
Special Skills on longer projects with lots of new projects planned we will be needing people with special skills. These may range from sewing to website design or business skills to building project management.  If you have a skill why not contact us to see if and when we need you. 
What do I do next?
First download the Volunteer's Guide (left) and take time to decide if volunteering in Africa is for you.  Next contact us to see if and when we may need you. Then complete the Volunteer's Form and email it to  We will get back to you and let you know if your application has been successfull. 
What else can I do whilst I'm there?
You'll have plenty of time to go on game drives in the National Park and this can be arranged at your lodge or camp. Each lodge has a swimming pool and relaxing over sun downers by the river is a favourite way to relax too.
