Description

This program is for volunteers who want to use their summer for a meaningful experience. This project runs for 2 weeks for each batch of volunteers from June - August each year. Our program is different because it addresses the specific needs of the beneficiaries and all activities are designed to ensure that all persons involved benefit. It is properly structured and volunteers have chaperone support from staff. There are also cultural activities each week.

Volunteers who are 16-18 years old - in high school, just finished high school/pre-university.

Volunteers will get to work on a key issue in a community setting and help to address areas of need - childcare, healthy lifestyle, sports development, community development and caring for persons in need.
