On our business projects you will work alongside experienced professionals as well as less qualified individuals who will benefit from your guidance.

The program is set to develop the  local communities establishing plans of better marketing and finance management. The program works with the less privileged families in Sakubva and Chikanga.

Volunteers may get involved in some of the following areas at their placement:

  • Administration - helping to organize the office (filing, photocopying, answering the phone, typing projects reports).
  • Marketing - keeping the website up to date, including writing articles, uploading photos of activities, making flyers and brochures, organizing   events.
  • Fundraising - sending business fundraising proposals to different firms and individuals. Project Visitation with partners.

By working with the organization volunteers will gain a well-rounded view of how charities work and the unique set of challenges they face in achieving their goals. If you complete every task to the best of your ability, you are certain to go home having gained valuable practical experience for your resume, while also having supported a worthwhile cause. The social program will see the local staff and community change their programs to self sustaining. 

Volunteers should be self motivated and hardworking  to the program, must be prepared to work Monday to Friday sharing their experience with a committed local staff and friendly local community.
