Volunteering in Cameroon

Volunteering in Cameroon is volunteering in one of the most beautiful countries in the world! Due to its geographical and climate circumstances, Cameroon is a country with an exceptionally rich biodiversity. Many regions contain rare or even endemic plant and animal species that are highly threatened by human activities. Poverty, unawareness and insuficient governmental management are currently causing further deterioration of the environmental situation in Cameroon.

We are therefore constantly in need of extra hands to help us in our endeavour towards the conservation of Cameroon’s rich biodiversity. If you want to do volunteering in Cameroon, Green Cameroon welcomes your help with open arms.

Volunteering at Green Cameroon
Training opportunities for volunteers
Volunteer in CameroonGreen Cameroon offers sufficient guidance in the volunteer’s work and where possible, the volunteer will be expected to attend trainings, workshops and meetings relevant for the running projects. The work will be diverse and it is our aim to give the volunteers a high level of responsibility, in such a way that they can follow up projects throughout the different work stages.

All volunteers will be offered a Pidgin language training for two weeks. This will be useful for both international volunteers as for Cameroonians coming from the Francophone part of the country. It will improve the communication in the office as well as the volunteer’s integration in the local community.

While staying in Cameroon, learning about the culture might be as important as carrying out the different task for Green Cameroon. To encourage this, the volunteer will be encouraged and invited to attend the many different cultural events, and (s)he will be offered to join work trips in the other parts of the country as much as possible.
