Program Details

The Lower Shire, where we are based, is one of the poorest regions in Malawi and there are many areas in which volunteers are needed. Let us know what your interests and skills are and we will build a volunteer program for you through our own programs or through programs of local affiliates such as schools, youth clubs or HIV support groups whom we regularly work with.
Volunteers can offer their help as a teacher and assist in a Pre-school. Your input will be a great help and much appreciated as schools are often under staffed and lack resources. Experienced teachers are particularly welcome.

You can assist program staff with training and awareness activities on issues such as: water, sanitation, hygiene, sexual health, HIV/AIDS, gender equality, child marriage prevention and youth development.


Activities & Shift

As a small NGO, we are always in need of an extra pair of hands in the office. In addition to working in the field, a large part of running an NGO is spent at the office. If volunteers are skilled and interested in volunteering at the office, they can help with writing and editing proposals, research, carrying out fundraising activities, assisting with online marketing, updating social media and website design in addition to their field volunteering tasks. Skilled photographers or film makers can also contribute by making promotional materials for our local NGO.


Rules

It will be an unforgettable experience - you will get to engage in Malawian life, learn more about our culture, share your knowledge and get to know and learn from the locals. You will also have a chance to make a difference in the lives of some of the poorest people in Malawi. Volunteering can be a great way to build confidence, develop personally, learn new skills or even just develop old ones.
