Africa Volunteer Corps

Africa Volunteer Corps (AVC) is an NGO based in Moshi, Tanzania with the mission of empowering Africans and strengthening local, grassroots NGO’s in Africa by placing African volunteers to work for one year with local NGO’s in Africa.

The goal of Africa Volunteer Corps is to strengthen local initiatives by providing them with a qualified, consistent, and culturally-fluent workforce while simultaneously providing employment experience as well as travel and networking opportunities to our corps members.

We aim to foster a generation of Africans dedicated to development, empowered to decided what “development” means for them, and equipped with the tools to make it a reality. Our pilot program will be in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania and we expect to have our first volunteers on the ground by 2011.
