African Impact

Since African Impact was founded in 2004 when we opened our doors to our first batch of volunteers on our Lion Rehabilitation Project in Zimbabwe. Since then we’ve grown from a small family-run organisation to the multi-award winning social enterprise we are today. We started out with a single goal – to bring about positive change in Africa, and we’re considerably proud of our impact this far!truly believe in making a difference and seek to maximise the positive impact of voluntourism in Africa, both for volunteers and for communities and conservation efforts. To us, volunteering is a two-way thing. It’s not just about the hands-on help and skills that volunteers bring; it’s also about what this amazing continent, its people and its wildlife can give those volunteers in return.“ VACorps and African Impact established a partnership in 2009. VACorps serves as the local service provider for AI internships in Cape Town.
