Yes. As explained in the project details and description, a broad range of volunteer skills and experience are needed to support and develop local capacity. Your placement will be individually designed to match your skills, experience and abilities with the needs of the project.


Every individual volunteer is matched to the needs of the project - we aim to put the right people in the right places at the right time!
While we acknowledge and welcome the individuality of each volunteer, there are some general approaches to volunteer placements which will help you to have the best possible experience. You will need to be:
* flexible and adaptable
* non-judgemental
