Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Hope Development Volunteers supports organizations committed to the development of Africa

We empower African projects by linking international volunteers to them.

Thousands of people are anxious to donate their time and abilities but become frustrated because they don’t know where their talents are needed. At the same time, hundreds of African non-profit organizations are seeking competent volunteers to enable them to carry on their very important work. As a service organization, HDV has a dual role: providing the solutions for both the volunteer and the not-for-profit organizations. HDV is, in fact, a matchmaker.

We assure a good organization-volunteer match by gathering pertinent information about both prospective volunteers and non-profit organizations. 
Whether you are looking for a change of career, a year-out, a chance to improve your skills and experience or you are an organization looking for a volunteer, we can help.
