NEWS: Run the Warm Heart of Africa, Malawi, 21 to 27 May 2018
Join us on the shores of Lake Malawi, the Lake of Stars, for a truly unique and exciting week! Experience life in rural Malawi and get to support some of our rewarding volunteer projects. Run the race of a lifetime (10km, half marathon and the ultimate marathon distances available); side by side with members of the local community that you have been working to assist during the week. Wake up at base camp to enjoy sunrises over the beautiful lake and socialise around a fire on the beach in the evenings, with a group of like minded people from around the globe.
Naturally Africa Volunteers provides community development projects that address crucial need in disadvantaged areas. As one of the poorest countries in the world there are many areas of need in Malawi. On our project we work closely with communities to support health care, teaching, pre-school, sports and I.T education initiatives. Our projects are focused on education and sustainability so whilst projects provide immediate relief we are also bringing long term change for the better.
We are experts in placing the right people in the right programmes so your skills can be utilised effectively and you will get the most out of your time with us. Whilst on the project you will be provided with 24/7 in country support from our coordinators who will ensure you become a valuable member of the team. Despite its levels of poverty, Malawi has so much to offer on its stunning shorelines and visitors are welcomed to the country that deservingly has the reputation as 'the warm heart of Africa.'
