We encourage a stay of a minimum of three to four weeks. The average volunteer placement is around four months which allows volunteers to establish solid relationships in the community and contribute a reasonable amount of time to the projects. For volunteer teachers, it allows them to complete one school term in most cases. It is important to recognize that, although the volunteers will benefit enormously from their experience volunteering with CISE, our main responsibility is to provide consistent and effective assistance to the community.

The rationale of online volunteerism is to encourage individuals to share and utilize their knowledge and skills by voluntarily doing something positive to the communities, particularly those that will have a positive impact on the under- privileged children directly or indirectly. The work CISE is requesting is fundraising.

Day-to-day duties of online volunteer will be:

researching, developing and planning fundraising ideas
managing door-to-door and street collections;
keeping records and reporting performance;
managing charity shops and online and mail order stores;
controlling budgets and meeting targets;
giving talks about CISE to the public;
writing reports and press releases

So you are giving up your time to volunteer, why give up your money too? First and foremost, because it actually costs CISE money to host volunteers in Malawi. There are staff salaries for the watchmen, gardeners, cooks, and cleaners, not to mention the maintenance and running costs to look after the chalets, shower and toilet facilities, water pump, solar panels, volunteer bicycles, and so on. Your volunteer fees cover what it costs the charity to keep this accommodation in good working order.
