MIFACIG summer volunteer program is a program that combines Cameroon culture, trekking and adventure, volunteer work for the good of the locals, and shopping in authentic Cameroon, all together in a matter of weeks. Our aims to deliver the experience of a lifetime to foreigners, and believes that the itinerary put together will successfully integrate the two concepts of work.
You as a volunteer will be given a proper orientation on how to handle yourself in Cameroon, and then after this, you will be placed in the Cameroon village, with a Cameroon family, in a home-stay set up, where you will be able to make visits to the local schools or orphanages and teach English. You may also work with women empowerment groups or with gardens clubs and early childhood development centers.
Lastly, before you leave Cameroon, you will be given some time to explore the city of Cameroon, shop around and enjoy the nightlife at various tourist spots, the largest one being Limbe.
