Volunteer Angola

There are limited volunteer work opportunities in Angola not least because the twenty-seven year civil war that raged until 2002. That war left landmines strewn throughout the country meaning few visitors venture outside the capital city of Luanda for fear of literally being blown up.

Angola is in 148th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country with a life expectancy for males and females at a staggering low 48 years but this is partly due to the effects of war.

Angola has one of the highest infant mortality rates of any country in the world and a half of all children in the country live below the poverty line with just over half of the child population having access to safe water supplies.

Yet, as advised, the volunteer sector doesn't really have any hold in Angola. What volunteer work there is focuses on rebuilding work, particularly schools and health centres and on rolling out vaccinations and treatment programs addressing malaria and HIV/AIDS. There is also work to be undertaken with the thousands of children who live and sleep on the streets of Luanda as one million children lost one parent during the war and, out of those, 300,000 lost both parents leaving them as defenceless orphans who went to the capital hoping for a better life.
