Community Development Volunteer Project
Volunteers act as catalysts for change by working alongside the local people to utilize local resources, provide them with the education and skills they need to uplift themselves from poverty and be self- sufficient. You will also conduct lessons for women's empowerment while working with youths in communities on projects that promote personal hygiene, health education, environmental awareness, sporting and recreational activities.
Volunteers willing to do some physical work will assist in the construction work for a local school, help in renovation and painting. If you are a computer literate or an IT expert and wish to put your experience into good use, you will assist the local community to capitalize on technologies by teaching computer and multimedia skills and data processing.
