Commitment to Action

Promoting African Youth Service in Rural Villages

Commitment by

CorpsAfrica

In 2015, building on the success of its model in Morocco, CorpsAfrica committed to opening new offices in Senegal and Malawi and placing 24 volunteers (ten country nationals and two Moroccans) in each country for a one year volunteer experience. CorpsAfrica gives bright, ambitious African men and women the opportunity to serve in their own countries, as volunteers in a program modeled in the likeness of the Peace Corps. The volunteers will help their communities identify and address changing and complex local needs in education, health, small business development, urban planning and infrastructure, agriculture, the environment, etc. They will also be responsible for creating a distinct, small-scale, high-impact development project that is a direct result of community input.
