Volunteers Needed!

Although our primary focus is on running our projects to help the local communities in Nkhata Bay District, Malawi, we also run a volunteer programme and welcome volunteers from overseas. If you are enthusiastic, hard-working, self-motivated, and proactive, and you are able to work under your own initiative and as part of a team, then our programme to volunteer in Africa might be for you. You don’t have to be a fully qualified teacher to apply to join our volunteer programme, although medical professionals should be qualified. If this describes you, then you may be just the person we’re looking for. Please note that we prefer that all volunteers have graduated from university. Please read the following pages thoroughly.
