Free (or Cheap) Volunteer Work in Egypt
It is one of our favourite countries to visit but for such a large country with both large numbers of tourist visitors and its fair share of social issues, Egypt offers very few opportunities for volunteering. Even the usually dependable help exchange websites come up short.
Grassroots Volunteering in Egypt
The organisations listed below have either got in touch with us to add their details to this or another of our websites, or we otherwise have reason to believe they are actively looking for international volunteers and charge reasonable or no fees to join in, live and work with them:
Habiba Organic Farm
A piece of desert turned into fertile land, this organic farm in a Bedouin settlement in Nuweiba, South Sinai welcomes volunteers to help out. They need help with general farm work, carpentry, plumbing, electric work, implementing green energy and permaculture practices. Most of all, they would love positive, enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to share their skills and ideas. They list themselves on WWOOF, skilleded volunteers from which they say can stay for a minimum of three months to give their best in the field of organic, desert agriculture. Other volunteers can stay for programmes of three or twenty one days, though the three day programme is priced at E£150 per day, and we have no further information on the three week placement.
Where: Nuweiba, Sinai.
Accommodation & Costs: Food and accommodation provided.
