Do you have a passion for education and life skills? Do you like doing research and working with databases? Do you have the discipline to carry out tasks independently and efficiently? If yes, then we have an exciting opportunity for you!
We are an education NGO that focuses on providing life-skill training to underprivileged communities. We are looking for volunteers who can help us find funding opportunities for our projects. You will be responsible for researching potential donors, grants and funds online and creating a database of relevant information. You will also assist us in preparing grant applications and reports.
You don’t need any experience or degree to join us. You will receive guidance and feedback from our team and have the chance to develop your skills and knowledge. You will also make a positive impact on the lives of many people.
As a volunteer, you can also choose to combine this work with other activities that interest you within our NGO, such as teaching, multimedia, social media or event management. You can tailor your volunteering experience to suit your preferences and availability.
If this sounds like something you would love to do, please apply now! We can’t wait to hear from you!
