Skilled Volunteer Required


“When children cannot continue their schooling the parents weep because they feel that is all they can give their kids. After they drop out of school, the children are often just walking around…”

This is where the story gets more serious. Children without schooling might be able to do domestic chores or farm work. These children are looking for work to help their families, falling victim to drugs, crime or early pregnancy.

Ecumenical Commission for Human Development is campaigning for girl child education under the title of “Girl’s Access to Education” (GATE) by establishing Girls Primary Education School for religious minorities by providing education kits, health education and awareness, teacher training's and girl's child policy advocacy and research for stakeholders.

Ecumenical Commission for Human Development required volunteers on urgently basis, which have strong experience in fund raising for education of girl child in Pakistan. The volunteers find 500 individual philanthropists who can support $ 30 per month on regular basis. The funds raised by volunteers will provide an opportunity to girl child more than access to a classroom and give the gift of education and hope for a lifetime.

Ecumenical Commission for Human Development would be most grateful if volunteers will respond to this request quickly to assist us in this charitable project. Please send your CV and documents at james@echd.org.pk. We look forward to your prompt affirmative response.

KIOO is an organization working in Tanzania having the same mission as yours i hope we need your collaboration. Your welcome in Tanzania
4 days ago

Need volunteers for fundraising activities.

Executive summary
Umoja wa wawezeshaji KIOO is a voluntary non-political, non-religious, and non-profit sharing organization registered under the Societies Ordinance of 1954 with certificate of registration number SO. 12793. KIOO is envisioning in having a Tanzanian society where every individual is free from poverty, injustice and lives indignity. The objectives to which our organization is established are to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS, malaria and other pandemic disease; to promote and defend human rights; to raise public awareness on the hazards of drug abuse and life skills; to develop and support programs that create awareness and induce people to develop the culture of self-employment as means of eradicating poverty; to raise awareness on human rights; good governance and accountability and provision of entrepreneurship and vocational training to mitigate the situation.

KIOO working experience
For more than 10 years of our operation we have realised that children from poorest families in Kigoma region are facing challenge in accessing their daily basic needs including better education, health services, clean drinking water and better shelter this is due to the fact that their families has no stable income, girls are the most impacted by the problem. Children in Kigoma region have been forced to engage in child labour as a way to substitute income to their families. In most cases the brothers and sisters are responsible of taking care of their young in so doing in fishing camps and tobacco farming areas they are used as cheap labour. The heads of the fishing camps have been using their financial power to manipulate girls and to associate in sexual acts. This practice has increased number of adolescent female parents in the area.

KIOO in our working experience we have found a village where over 935 children are not in school due to long walking towards the current primary school. The current primary school is found in more than 36 kilometers from the place where these children are living as a result they cannot manage to walk all the miles. The teaching and learning environment for these children is not friendly mostly for girl students. The situation is very worse for girls who are at high risk of being raped from their current circumstances to reach school. This has led parents to not register their school aged children since it is not easy for a 7-year-old child to walk that distance every day after many children have passed school enrollment years, so they are not enjoying their rights to education. In mitigating the situation parents agreed to have community volunteers teachers who teach these children how to read and write under trees where there are no toilets and other facilities needed for a school.

Not only that school aged children have to walk more than 36 miles a day for searching a school but also pregnant women have to walk 112 miles a day in searching for health services as their nearest one. This has resulted into some women dying during giving birth, their children are malnourished as it is not easy for a woman to attend clinics days as it is advised. Women are not aware of reproductive health, nutrition for their children, family planning and exclusive breastfeeding. They need support.

In mitigating the situation KIOO introduced an education and vocational training canter where principally offer remedial/supplementary education for primary school drop-outs and vocational training to teenagers. Also we have identified the needy children are group them into centres so that to enable us to offer them services. Currently we have 5 centres with 240 children each and 4 volunteers to teach. To support this we are asking your support/donation to enable us to improved access to quality education; enhanced household health services and livelihoods; increased young peoples’ employment opportunities and building institutional capacity.

EXPECTED RESULTS
Children that are at risk or have dropped out of school access, attend formal and informal education.
Priority will be given to school aged children that are at risk or has dropped out of school with a particular focus on those engage in child labour. KIOO will also support them by building classroom, paying for volunteerism teachers, building toilets at their school, buying learning and training materials and providing them scholastics materials.

A poorest household in rural areas has increased access to health facilities and income to meet family needs.
Women that face difficulties in accessing health services and information will be grouped into groups so that to enable them to meet weekly under the supervision of a community development facilitator who will mobilize community to discuss issues surrounding health and income at household level. In collaboration with community members we will build dispensary for women to access health services and providing women with business management education.

Young people have increased access to safe and decent employment opportunities
In the face of widespread poverty, Tanzanian young people are expected to play critical roles in supplementing household income, and in some cases, these young people are caregivers themselves. However, as many of them lack experience and skills, they find fewer opportunities for employment and have the highest rates of unemployment.

Strengthened institutional capacity to provide vocational, business and entrepreneurship trainings
In order to strengthen institutional capacity to provide quality vocational, business and entrepreneurship, KIOO will map out the gaps in institutional capacity to provide the required courses. In order for KIOO to fulfill its mandate it will employing quailed working staffs, buying of working tools for practical, establishment of information and Technology centre (ICT) and rehabilitation of Ilagala education and training centre.

The plastic bottle problem.

Now this discussion is not directly about volunteering, but is something that everyone should think about before traveling.
This is about my number 1 dislike in this world, rubbish. Practically everyone in the world contributes to rubbish, knowingly or by indirect ways. It‘s almost impossible to not create waste in our society these days, the majority of food comes wrapped and when not, there‘s always a carbon footprint attached to it.

While traveling through SEA for 4 months last year, we bought at least 2 bottles of water a day. That‘s 240 bottles, but more likely we drank over 400 in our travels. Now consider that there is no recycling there also, so they all were burnt on the side of the street, if not floating somewhere in the ocean. Disgusting.

It‘s easy to counter this though buy purchasing and using a water filter. We brought our Sawyer Squeeze (https://sawyer.com/products/sawyer-squeeze-filter-system-sp131/) with us to Nepal and spent 2 months traveling without buying a single bottle. Also Lifstraw (http://lifestraw.com) has great products for water filtration. The filters do cost a bit of money, for $25 USD for a Sawyer filter, but this is a small cost to pay to stop creating waste.

Please consider this when planning your trip to wherever you go, most places at least have access to running water that can be filtered.

Change my life and start volunteering

Hi everyone,

Well, I'm actually living a life I don't like anymore, and I decided I had to leave everything and start volunteering. I was very disappointed at first in my researches because I couldn't find any volunteer position without any exorbitant fees. I really understand that non-profit organization have no money at all, but when you offer your time and your skills, I think it's normal to have no fees. You work for free but you have a bed and meals. But I can uderstand if there are a few fees, but $2000 for a 2 weeks volunteer position, that's a no no!

So, in a few weeks I'm ready to go, so happy to help worldwide, I want to experience many things and help any kind of organization in need. But well, when you don't know anything about this world, I have to say this is so difficult to know where to find any informations. I'm very happy to have found this website, plus I can speak with other volunteers. So here is my question:

Do you guys have volunteered somewhere and had a great experience you would recommand me?
