Donate your time

Volunteers are a really important part of our work, and we love involving people in our projects and our vision. There are a variety of opportunities available for you to get involved, whether in the UK, in Ethiopia or elsewhere.

Teaching placements

Taking a sabbatical or gap year with Link Ethiopia is a great way to have fun, give back, and gain new experiences. Teaching placements have been the centrepiece of our volunteering scheme for over 14 years and are an exciting opportunity to make a vital contribution to an Ethiopian school and the lives of its pupils.

Share your skills

English teachers are not the only type of volunteers that are highly valued in Ethiopia. You may have a skill that you wish to share with young people, or people who work with young people. We have had previous volunteers as sports coaches, business trainers, photographers and more.

School and group expeditions

We have years of experience of facilitating group and school expeditions to Ethiopia. These are highly flexible and customisable, but can involve summer camps, building projects and usually include some time to explore Ethiopia as well. You can find out about past expeditions and contact us about organising your own.

Volunteer from anywhere

Want to get involved but can’t commit for a long period of time? Giving your skills can be a really great way to make a contribution to our work in a flexible way that works for you. Maybe you are great with organising events, have an eye for graphic design, can offer legal advice or want to spread the word about Link Ethiopia.

Research and Programming

Are you looking to gain in-country work experience in international development, education or a related field? Or are you a student wanting to write a thesis or an academic looking to carry out research in Ethiopia. Depending on our current priorities we often have the need for both project managers and researchers in Ethiopia. For UK-based research opportunities please see Volunteer in London.
