To work with the Charity in overseas is a unique opportunity to see inside another culture, to work with children and to see an NGO (non-governmental organisation) in operation. If this appeals to the volunteers, we are delighted to give them the chance to work there.
We set great store by being accountable for all the money donated, so volunteers are valuable as the eyes and ears of the Charity, who can actually witness the work being done. We prefer people to be of college-leaving age or over (previous work experience can be valuable). Although younger people have volunteered, life is not easy there and a mature approach is needed.
Not only will you be helping some of the poorest children to have the chance of an education and opportunity in life, you will find the experience rewarding, enriching, and enjoyable. Volunteers will have tasks allocated that will involve visiting projects (with staff member) and meeting the children, write monitoring reports and very importantly involving with the children in the daily activities.
We also have a small number of short-term placements, to help teach English to the children in our supported projects; our Peterborough office will be pleased to give you further information.
