Why we believe in community development work through internships and volunteer work at (small scale) local projects in Africa:

The community development internship and volunteer programs of Let’s Go Africa connects people from Europe, Canada, and the United States with local projects/development organizations in Africa. With this program, one works on stimulation of development on micro, medium and macro levels.

Micro level:
The personal development (self-image, confidence and social skills etc.) of the volunteer is stimulated because he or she challenges him or herself by temporarily leaving his or her comfort zone, crossing borders, exploring new territories and learning to live independently in a different (culture) world. This requires the volunteer to have flexibility, adaptability and tolerance.

Medium level:
The program will support the development and empowerment of people in underdeveloped, rural areas by giving practical help and financial support to local development projects.

Macro level:
We work together for a better world and future perspective, through intercultural/international networks and transferring knowledge across the world. We intend to make people aware of the connection between different cultures, countries, and continents and the influence (good and bad) we have on each other. People are stimulated to look further than their own country and learn to be more involved and responsible with the underdeveloped world.
