On this volunteer Rwanda program volunteers prefer to be helping Rwandan communities move towards a brighter and healthier future, and they can become involved in many different capacities. Working within the communities of Rwanda, helping people that are less fortunate, and experiencing traditional Rwandan culture are just some of the wonderful experiences they will take away from this placement.
One of the advantages of the volunteer Rwanda program is that volunteers are not limited to one job role and will have the opportunity to ‘sample’ other roles during the placement. To become involved in other projects volunteers simply inform a member of staff who will happily make any necessary arrangements.
Volunteer work side by side the locals’ on-going brick construction and water building projects, youth projects, healthcare outreaches and women empowerment projects in the communities around Rwanda.
Some tasks include farming, animal rearing, construction of the volunteer center, expansion, water well building and renovation work. Volunteers do not need prior experience, but skilled workers are very welcome.
