Volunteer @ Ubunye

From supporting teachers, to planning celebrations, to raising money, the work of volunteers is urgent and endless.

There is really no age requirement for volunteering. In fact, the earlier that volunteering begins and continues throughout childhood, the more likely a person is to participate in community activities as an adult.

We do prefer that children under the age of 14 are accompanied by parents (better still volunteer as a family).

Volunteering together as a family helps kids learn that they can make a positive difference in the lives of others – and that feels downright inspiring and good.

Manage a Business?  Companies with an engaged employee base are the companies that tend to thrive. Of course, you need a sound business model and products that consumers demand, but that’s not enough. Your company needs a soul.

Why not launch a programme to engage employees in service to others – Ubunye Community Projects can assist you with this.

How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world!

    The needs of the children are varied, and we would welcome the skills and input from social workers, child psychologist, how to identify special needs, teach children how to care for their pets, oral hygiene, personal hygiene, how to respect other people, tuition in musical instruments, singing, dancing, artwork and general creativity,

  • How can I assist teachers and admin staff?

    We need skilled persons who can spend time and provide assistance to teachers tin order that they can master their admin tasks, as well as a need to coach teachers of how to bring fresh ideas to the classes.

Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.
