* As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic all of Phunzira’s programmes in Malawi have been temporarily suspended until further notice. We will not be accepting volunteers at this time.*

Are you interested in volunteering in Africa? Are you looking for a new challenge and a change of scenery? Do you have knowledge and skills you’d like to share with one of the poorest parts of Africa? Phunzira is constantly looking for vibrant and enthusiastic individuals to join our projects in North Malawi and WE DO NOT CHARGE!

There are numerous opportunities for volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life. We are looking for help with education, health, youth, business, construction, IT and management training. The overall focus of our projects is to create a healthy and happy environment for people to learn and develop skills for sustainable living. We are therefore interested in passionate and creative individuals, so please don’t hesitate to read on even if you feel you don’t have a specific skill set.

Malawi is a beautiful country with a reputation for its friendly people and safe surroundings. Ruarwe is a remote village along the lake in an area of incredible natural beauty and it is both a challenging and rewarding place to work. There is no charge for volunteering with Phunzira and you will be staying in or near to Zulunkhuni River Lodge, where there are plenty of exotic birds and fish to keep you entertained.

Phunzira is a small organisation with very limited funds. Volunteers are not required to raise money before joining us but it may make your job a bit easier in terms of purchasing relevant resources. If you are interested in raising money then click here!
