The Volunteer project aims to engage a community of citizens from around the world interested in development projects that provide support to the vulnerable children of Zimbabwe and at the same time offering them with a unique and unforgettable experience.
Volunteers can be high school groups, college students, working professionals or retirees wishing to spend time in Zimbabwe and willing to bring to Nhaka Foundation knowledge, skills and abilities that will support its current programs and propel them forward.
Volunteers are needed to work in the field as well as in the office. While team Nhaka will leverage the skills of any interested volunteer, teachers, health care workers (nurses, doctors, dentists), social workers, construction workers, researchers, analysts and administrators are of particular need.
Depending on the length of commitment, volunteers will undergo training to prepare them for living and working in Zimbabwe. They will learn about Nhaka Foundation and its programs, be taught some basic Shona, and educated on the Shona culture. Volunteers will also have time to get acquainted with fellow volunteers and hopefully begin the process of building everlasting bonds.
The volunteer program is a fee-based program which provides for the volunteer’s accommodations and ground transportation as well as funds a portion of the work carried out in the rural communities being served. Volunteers can make a two-, four- or eight- week commitment.Volunteer Program
