Support water catchment rehabilitation

Volunteers work with a team of dedicated team of staff members to rehabilitate community water catchments through tree planting.

The Volunteer Program for EPDA Cameroon changes with need. At this point we need committed volunteers with strong environmental, social, economic, education and development background or other relevant fields. The volunteer does not necessarily have to be very experienced. All that is needed is the willingness and the required motivation to participation in community development projects and/or ability to analyze and present community needs and priorities in a simple and logical frame that can be transformed into quick actions addressing community needs. The organization has some track record and good visibility in the local context which can be a good starting point. We also think that a volunteer that is strongly connected professionally and globally can be a great asset. We assist volunteers to acquire moderate accommodation and we provide working space and the necessary information to fund-raise for our charitable work. While we value our volunteers we also are flexible over her/his input. This means working hours, visit to other places of /her/his choice, after work hour socializing, etc. Other explanations are included in our volunteer contract and policy. Thanks for willing to volunteer with us. We really value and appreciate our volunteers.
