Be a Volunteer

Volunteering is basically providing services with a free will, without any expectation. Volunteering is viewed as a significant means to involve people to contribute their resources and skills in the process of development of the society.
Volunteering is simple. It’s about giving your time to do something useful, without getting paid. In return you get the satisfaction of time and effort well spent. In addition, volunteering can be a way to meet new people, learn new skills, and gain useful experience!

The opportunities are huge. There is something that you can do with whatever skills and experience you have. The best way to see what is available is to contact us.
The biggest problem for many people is finding the time to volunteer. It can reduce your choices if you don’t have much time to spare, but many busy people do find suitable opportunities.

Volunteers should be above 18 years of age.

Finding the right volunteering opportunity is simply a matter of asking some key questions:

  • What interests, beliefs, or values would you like to pursue?
  • What are the challenges would you like to face?
  • What skills do you have that could be useful for a service organization like ours?

By Volunteering you will get

  • a way to meet new people or broaden the mind set
  • to make a difference in someone’s life
  • an opportunity to support a cause you feel strongly about
