We are looking for volunteers who are interested and passionate about the work we do and genuinely want to make a difference. Individuals who are proactive, enthusiastic and confident working independently will thrive on these projects. An understanding and respect for local culture and customs is essential to ensure good relationships with the staff, children and community, and to have a positive impact. We recruit volunteers from different backgrounds and careers. Many of our volunteers are University students looking to gain work experience or travel in their summer vacations, but we also welcome volunteers from the age of 16 and over, professionals, retired individuals, people looking for a different summer experience or exploring career change options - just get in touch!
