Volunteering:

Lots of people of all ages donate their time and skills to do something really worthwhile, but we always need more volunteers to help with a wide range of tasks throughout the year.

You don’t need any experience or special skills – just a good attitude and lots of energy!

If you would like to get involved, we always need people to…

  1. test, fix and pack computers
  2. help raise funds for us to continue the good work
  3. assist with organising events
  4. write (e.g. publicity material for a variety of media, proposals, reports, etc)
  5. provide or drive a van
  6. give presentations to promote MakeIT4Africa and its work to professional
    colleagues
  7. travel to Ghana to help deliver and set-up equipment, and provide training for
    local facilitators and partners

If you can help in any of these ways (or maybe some other way?) then please consider volunteering – only one or two hours a week would be very much appreciated.

Please contact us to discuss what would suit you best.
