About Ikando

Volunteer in Africa with Ikando. Our objective is to help more people gain the life changing, life affirming experiences that volunteering can give. We are committed to enabling skill transfer, enabling organisations in the developing world to access different skill sets and to helping volunteers realize the value they can add using the skills they hold.

We hope our volunteers will become responsible global citizens asa result of their experience with Ikando, promoting the need for social change and raising awareness in their home communities on the issues they encountered. Africa has a lot to offer but also needs support, the support it rightfully deserves.

Please be aware that Ikando Placements are not glorified holidays but rather opportunities to live and work alongside the community. Please read the information contained on this website thoroughly and take your time to think about whether you will be happy in the environment in which you will be living and working.
