We are looking for volunteers who will work with us in reaching out especially in fundraising for our education model and running a community resource centre for sports (soccer) and education.
All through the year.
Currently we don't have the funds to provide for anything. The volunteer will pay for their stay and other related cost of living, travel and visa etc. We are a small team of young people working on this initiative on a pro-Bono none of the members are full time staff.
We have mobilized for soccer equipment for our local community clubs, for example, uniforms, playing shoes, etc. We would like to work with volunteers in running crowd sourcing platform for fundraising while also searching for playing equipment and materials.
