Volunteer Ivory Coast

The Ivory Coast or, as it would prefer to be called, the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is an example of Africa gone wrong insofar as, following independence, it was a safe, secure and economically viable state unlike so many of its neighbours, yet threw all of that away through greed and corruption to make itself a failed state by the turn of last century. Today the Ivory Coast is ranked in 168th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country. Life expectancy stands at 57yrs and infant and under five mortality rates are among the highest in the world.

Violence against children is commonplace, being seen as a cultural norm and grinding poverty affects most of the population, many of who are still displaced from the wars.

Given the instability in the Ivory Coast, and what stability there is often enforced by outside peacekeepers, the volunteer work sector does not flourish in the Ivory Coast. Rather much work there focuses on infrastructure rebuilding, providing emergency and humanitarian aid and relief and working with the hundreds of thousands of orphaned and abandoned children, some through war, some through HIV/AIDS. There are also health care and educational/teaching volunteer work openings in the Ivory Coast. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in the Ivory Coast let us know by contacting us here. We look forward to hearing from you!
