United Playground helps people to travel to South Africa, Ghana and Tanzania to realise their dreams of volunteering in Africa. A selection of different projects are available to choose from across destinations in all three countries. A range of durations can also be chosen from for volunteering opportunities from two to twelve weeks in length.

Once in Africa, United Playground's representatives help to ensure things run smoothly by meeting volunteers at the airport and taking them to their accommodation. The price of the trip includes this accommodation, as well as meals and admin assistance from on-site representatives.

Pricing is competitive compared with other volunteering organisations, as United Playground is founded on the principle that people who are giving up their time to volunteer in Africa should not have to also give up more of their own money than is necessary.
