I am a master's student and am looking for ways that link a certain social commitment with serious math. Since I have not found such an overview yet and in order to raise public awareness of such opportunities, I decided to pose this question (feel free to put this question on hold, if you feel that it violates any of your rules).

Recently, a friend told me that he will work as a TA at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. I just saw that more senior mathematicians can go to these institutes as lecturers.

In this sense, I am looking for similar opportunities where people can use part of their free-time to do serious mathematics in developing countries on a rather voluntary basis. Are there similar slots available somewhere?

Maybe this should be a comment, but it sounds like you might want to look into the activities of the IMU's Commision for Developing Countries. In particular, see their Volunteer Lecturer Program.

You can volunteer with datakind, which helps social change organizations with data science. That is an opportunity to use serious statistics and any other relevant math.
