What You Can Do
You can take part in changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of people throughout Africa while getting accredited for your hard work
Challenges Worldwide ICS
We offer young people the chance to play a key role in reducing poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries. Our volunteers work with growing businesses across Africa. We want to make sure that everyone can earn a decent living.
Building a strong economy is the best way to address poverty. We do this by helping businesses to grow. Company growth creates jobs and a secure income for people living in the city. This also helps farmers who depend upon urban businesses to process, package and sell their goods. Earning your own money is the first step towards reducing the need for aid helps sustainable development.

Our programme is funded by the UK Government, so you don’t need cash to take part!
