Voluntourism

Wish to contribute your energy and skills as you travel within Rwanda to our Cultural initiative?

Volunteer work is at the Centre of our concept and everyone is welcome, from East Africa and Abroad. Our volunteering is about engaging with locals communities through culture and learning from one another.

Why volunteer?

  • Volunteering is a great way to get work experience! You learn new skills by trying new jobs.

  • You might find something you’d like to do for a living, or discover what you would not want to do.

  • Better yet, you can meet people who can give you guidance and possibly help you to find a paid job later on.

  • Employers will be impressed that you took the initiative to learn new things.

  • You can learn how a charitable organization works.

  • Best of all, you will be taking action to promote what you think is important and probably be helping someone else along the way.

  • Be the change that you seek!
