Minjeni is built up by local volunteers and is running by local volunteers. But to get our organization to grow and in a faster way develop the areas of Shimbwe and Uru East we need international volunteers. For Minjeni to have volunteers is both a profit for the organization and also for the community where job opportunities are made.
Who can be a volunteer for Minjeni? We prefer that you can be with us for at least three months, but we can also work with your availability. We recognize if you have higher education in the areas of health, education, marketing and fundraiser experience but you are very welcome to apply for any project that seems to interest and suit you. You need to be prepared to work some weekends but will, of course, have other days off, for example for travelling. If you are a PhD student it is possible to do your research with us. But do not forget to get your research permit before starting your study.
How can you volunteer?
Your Volunteer experience with us could be in several fields like women empowerment, English lessons, Health and Education, finance, marketing, administration and more. We have two suggestions for you: Make your own project or apply for Ready projects
