MozVolunteers started as an idea in 2008, on a beach in Mozambique. Whilst on a surfing trip up the coast of Africa, we (Scott and Alex) spent some time with local communities set amongst the coconut palms behind the Indian Ocean. It was here that we realised that many of these people and communities had a desperate need for assistance. We racked our brains and came up with our idea, which was to provide a safe, enjoyable "off the beaten track" vacation package incorporating volunteering and cultural experiences for students, career-breakers, gap year takers and those who just want to escape or have an adventure.
Since then, we have developed and expanded, worked with many different people from different backgrounds, who speak different languages and live in many different countries to reach where we are today: 2 projects in Mozambique, 1 in St Lucia, South Africa and 1 in Underberg, Southern Drakensberg, South Africa.
Alongside running day-to-day volunteering opportunities, caring for children, providing education and healthcare assistance, creches, residential children's homes, wildlife conservation opportunities, THETA wildlife qualifications, we offer adventures that incorporate many different activities, alongside the opportunity to "give back" by volunteering.
