This project organises numerous competitive football tournaments in order to target local youth and disseminate educational information about HIV/AIDS, drugs & malaria.
Volunteers will spend their days organizing the football tournaments, preparing educational material, inviting participants to the tournament, coordinating some logistics, and teaching participants about social issues.
In our ongoing as well as our summer programs, volunteers are expected to work between 7-8 hours a day from Monday to Friday. Weekends can be spent exploring, sightseeing, relaxing, and hanging out with other volunteers or newly made friends! The local kids like to play with volunteers after their working day typically!
Hope Foundation is an organization with limited financial resources; therefore, we require that each volunteer covers the cost of living during their stay in Cameroon, which we can arrange for both safety and comfort.
In addition to arranging accommodation, Hope Foundation picks up and drops off volunteers from the airport, and provides three healthy meals a day for volunteers. All volunteers receive a free T-Shirt. In the past ten years of receiving volunteers, this has proven to be both the easiest and most affordable way for volunteers to join us in Cameroon!
To enable us to easily prepare for the arrival of our volunteers, Hope Foundation asks for a deposit of 50% of the total amount prior to arrival of the volunteer.
A Hope Foundation staff member will pick up volunteers directly from the airport. The journey to Bertoua is about 6 hours.
The types of accommodation vary from one project to the next and from one location to another. A high amount of flexibility is expected from volunteers at this juncture where living conditions are not always the same as from their home countries. Volunteers coming in groups usually live together in shared accommodations while individuals stay with host families, a culturally immersive experience which allows volunteers to integrate into the local Cameroonian community through food, dance, music, dressing, and general lifestyle!
Detailed information about the project including map (s) / photos, helpful links, will be available and sent to applicants by email.
Three healthy meals are provided per day to volunteers! In a host family stay, all meals are prepared for the volunteer. In the dorm building, volunteers have access to a full-stocked kitchen and a cook comes once a day to prepare lunch. Breakfast and dinner are made by the volunteers, though all groceries are provided by Hope Foundation.
