There is no limit to what areas volunteers can work in; however, typically there are a lot of opportunities in the following areas:
- Health Professionals
- Environmental Conservation
- Capacity building
- Children’s homes
- Seniors’ homes
- Sports education/Coaching – The main sporting disciplines in Zimbabwe are soccer, rugby, tennis, hockey, swimming and athletics.
Whatever your qualifications, background or experiences contact us and tell us what it is you would like to do and we will find the best possible opportunities for you to volunteer in.
We also need volunteers who are outside Zimbabwe to use their time and influence to procure goods and equipment particularly for needy children in rural and urban areas under the following projects.
Sanitary pads project
Teenage girls from poor families do not afford sanitary pads and therefore skip schools during those times of the month because they are uncomfortable or for fear of being teased. The cost of a year’s supply for a girl child is not more than USD 50.00 which though it sounds like a small amount goes a long way to ensuring that a girl child keeps abreast of her male counterparts by attending school. The sanitary project requires many volunteers to get these pads or to simply supply a girl child with them on a month to month basis. Volunteers should in some way interact with the children so as to fully appreciate the impact of the gesture on the child and to gain fulfilment.
A second and equally pressing project that we need volunteers for relates to information technology. It is important to introduce children in rural environments to IT if they are to be at par with children in the urban centres. We therefore require many new or used computers for the rural schools program.
Sports equipment project
The other items badly needed are shoes for boys and girls, mathematical sets, science laboratory equipment, sporting equipment such as soccer balls, hockey sticks, rugby balls and boxing gloves.
