Algiers - Post Report Question and Answers

What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

The local dog shelter is great, or teaching English to almost anyone who wants to learn. There are several food banks and other places to volunteer but I'd just clear your participation before you join. The govt here sometimes does not like us interacting with Algerian based-orgs. - Aug 2021

Local hospitals, orphanages, and animal shelters. - Apr 2021

I believe it requires permission from the local government. - Mar 2019

None that don't walk a risky line; foreign involvement in NGOs is dicey. (For the volunteer and the NGO.) - Sep 2016

Virtually none except in the Embassy community. Potentially at the American school opening Fall 2016. Don't attempt to do religious work or religiously connected work as the Algerians can be touchy about this. - Jun 2016

Don't know, but I'm sure there must be some. - Mar 2014

Very few. - Oct 2013
