General Information about Volunteering in Cameroon

Each year, Hope Foundation organizes a number of projects in Cameroon that welcome volunteers from all over the world. You can choose between ongoing programs or summer programs (June-August). On site we would like to give you the opportunity to gain new experiences of a different culture and a different lifestyle. In addition, living and working together offers an excellent opportunity to make new friends and learn more about a fascinating country. 

We welcome you at any time to support us in our work. The success of our work depends on your enthusiasm and dedication. Your time, energy and talent can make a difference where help is really needed. To apply, please click here or send us an email (office [at] hope-found.org).


The time required depends on the selected programs. Basically you support us 6 - 7 hours a day (Mon-Fri). The weekends and Cameroonian holidays are free and you can use them for excursions or design them as you wish.

The summer programs are usually carried out in small groups and for 3 months, while ongoing programs are carried out individually and can last from 4 months to a year. You can always freely decide which programs and for how long you want to participate. We can take into account special requests regarding the duration or type of programs. 

Here you can see a complete list of all programs.

Duration, accommodation and costs

As the Hope Foundation is a small NGO with limited financial resources, we ask all volunteers to pay their  own expenses during their stay in Cameroon. Overall, accommodation and meals for the above option cost  around € 100 / week. Of course, our volunteer coordinator can help volunteers find alternative  accommodations and transportation options regardless of the Hope Foundation. The longer you stay in  Cameroon, the cheaper the costs will be !!

  • You can participate between 4 weeks and 6 months or longer
  • We have safe and comfortable accommodation for our volunteers or host family
  • We pick up our volunteers from the airport and bring them back again
  • 3 healthy meals a day are included
  • Everyone gets a Hope Foundation T-shirt to wear!
