As a small but steady growing organization, there is always need for extra support to help with the daily running. In order to be able to invest as much money as possible in the educational guidance for the children in the program, personnel costs are kept at a minimum. Unfortunately there is a shortage of qualified and affordable personnel in the area, so we gratefully rely on the support of volunteers next to the permanent BIA staff.
The input of these volunteers is of vital importance for us, since we can benefit from their experience, knowledge, and never-ending motivation to help with numerous projects. While most tasks are school or education related, we happily work with volunteers with different backgrounds.
Homework classes, after school activities, swimming lessons and camps, would not be part of our program if it weren’t for our volunteers.
Volunteers are accommodated in our Born in Africa house during their stay at a reduced rental rate.
Interested candidates start their application online and are selected based on their experience, background and motivation.
We strive towards an open relationship with volunteers, so we can reach a win-win situation whereby all parties benefit.
