What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

There are a number of NGOs that use volunteers, especially for teaching English, helping with school work and sorting donations. I actually have found it harder to find volunteer work here than when I was in New Delhi where the big expat organizations did a lot of volunteering and had a database. People do find volunteer work here, including through churches. - Jan 3, 2018
I believe that many exist but I'm not aware of any specific person who regularly volunteered. - Sep 9, 2017
Loads. Animals, children, refugees, poverty, fair trade. - May 16, 2017

Lots. There are organizations that list all the opportunities, like CSA. - Aug 19, 2014
Plenty! Plenty! Syrian and African refugee groups. The USG Niler just listed a bazillion opportunities. With animals, people, environment - all kinds if you seek them out. - May 28, 2014
Work through churches or NGOs. I don't know if this is still possible with security restrictions. - Apr 2, 2014
