Social Impact

The driving force behind our organization Volunteer Centre Namibia is the selfless giving of resources, skills, time and love by volunteers and at the same time it is a great way to develop your own skills, meet new people and work as part of an enthusiastic team. People come from all walks of life with the common aim of changing the lives of vulnerable children with a Disability into an Abled Person and to assist local organizations in the fight against poachers.

We aim to implement our plans by training and engaging the volunteers to participate in a variety of activities.  Volunteers will attend an orientation session/ training where they receive introductory training on various skills to support and guide those in the various volunteer programs.
