About us

Onaris Africa began with one simple aim in mind, to create genuine and sustainable social change in Africa by facilitating high impact volunteer experiences.

We hold this at the core of everything we do. We believe that sharing time, skills and knowledge with communities in need, helps to balance inequalities, encourage understanding and makes a fairer world for everybody.

Why Africa? Well that’s where our heart is. We have become cheerleaders for this vast, vibrant and captivating continent. We want to challenge the negative and dated stereotypes that plaque this beautiful land and showcase the awe-inspiring Africa that we fell in love with.

As a not-for-profit Social Enterprise, we are dedicated to championing a new way to volunteer, a way that focuses on impact rather than ego and on mutual respect rather than pity.

Our ideals are summed up in these 6 principles that guide everything we do…

Volunteer With Purpose Volunteers will only ever be placed in organisations where their skills will make a measurable positive impact to the objectives of the host organisation.

Always for Community Interest All profit will be invested responsibly into our partnered organisations to be used for the advancement of their objectives or reinvested back into Salvonaris Africa to sustain the quality of our service and to finance company run community projects.

Ethical Project Partners All host organisations must strictly operate on a not for profit basis and for the greater good of the local community.

Every Volunteer Matters The commitment to delivering a consistently high service which extends to every element of the volunteer experience. This includes pre-departure support, in-country support, accommodation and food, and additional activities during the trip.

No Skill is Useless The recognition that every individual has a unique skill set to contribute and it is the responsibility of Salvonaris Africa to find and utilize a volunteer's skill set in the most advantageous way to benefit the host organisation.

Authentically African Salvonaris Africa will always solely focus on the development of local communities in Africa. As well as always delivering an authentic experience that encourages responsible tourism and exposes volunteers to true African culture.
