Volunteer Equatorial Guinea

Two things affect the volunteer work project outlook in Equatorial Guinea. Firstly it has a population of just 685,991 and secondly it is sub-Saharan Africa's third largest oil exporter making for a thriving economy albeit a very unbalanced one with allegations that most of the country's wealth is siphoned off to line the pockets of the ruling elite.

Indeed despite this wealth Equatorial Guinea remains in 136th 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.

Nearly three quarters of the population live under the poverty line whilst the offshore oil industry engages mainly foreign workers leaving the local population to live off subsistence farming without access to electricity, basic education or heath care facilities.

As advised there are few volunteer work placements in Equatorial Guinea and those that do exist focus on caring for orphaned children and promoting access to education, nutrition and health care as well as family strengthening.
