Volunteering in Africa

Any ideas of organisations that offer volunteering in Africa without the huge expenses cost that goes with it?

Everywhere I look, £1000 or above is required to undertake work experience in the sector.

Training in the sector

October 3, 2007 - 1:42pm

I am currently working in the international development sector but at a very low level. I am extermely grateful that I have my foot in the door as it has taken me some time to get here.

I know that I need to get in my travel and experience in the field in order to enhance my future prospects in the sector. But could anyone give me any advice on any development training schemes or organisations that run such events so at to build up as much knowledge and experience as possible?
