Working and volunteering

Volunteering

While travelling in Benin, visitors will find heaps of international volunteers but few local opportunities. A good place to research before departing is the African Volunteer Network (www.african-volunteer.net), which lists a wide range of volunteer projects.

Work

The best work options for international visitors are through international organizations, organised before arrival. In general, foreigners work via umbrella organsations as contractors with specific (renewable) time limits for their work project.
