Constructing Solar Powered Huts for Volunteers

Kapiri, Uganda Charity

Funds raised shall be channeled through donation button link provided at profile/registration stage.

Work shall progress in real time as funds come in. Progress reports/updates (including pictures) shall be posted on goodsurfing blog among other social media platforms in order to keep the team in the loop.

The project has already been able to procure 5 acres of land towards this cause.

We need to make the "Environmental Education Hub" habitable by volunteers visiting for purposes of carrying out among others activities on Education, Research and Rural Development in Kapir, Eastern Uganda.

Climate Justice remains a cross cutting issue. As a matter of principle, climate change is a global challenge affecting the entire
world and humanity as a whole. Apart from that, scientists predict increasingly severe consequences of climate change for generations yet
to come. The concept of climate justice addresses this unequal
allocation of benefits and burdens by relating climate change to
matters of social justice and human rights. We consider climate justice as an inevitable brick in building a sustainable future and creating a just and fair society.
By taking active steps against climate change and demonstrating
solidarity with most vulnerable population groups and peoples, we
assume our responsibility in the global sustainability challenge and seek to do our part in attaining climate justice.
Together with local communities, volunteers shall work on grassroots
projects that combine manual work and awareness raising actions. These address issues such as: climate change, carbon offset, environmental sustainability, protection of responsibility in the global sustainability challenge and seek to do our part in attaining climate justice. (CCIVS)

Make A Wish for Street & Slum Kids

Ajmer, India Working with kids

A wonderful initiative to share happiness among street and slum children has been taken in Ajmer by Rajasthan Samgrah Kalyan Sansthan, with the support of Global Giving Foundation. Under this project, nutritious food, toys, sweets, new dress, chocolates are provided to street and slum children.

Efforts are taken continuously to enlighten the life of these unlucky children by means of fireworks, colors, water-guns, cake, etc on the occasion of festivals as Christmas, Diwali, Holi.



Demand of the Project

The life of slum and street children is surrounded by darkness. The sense of alienation of society leads them to get involved into immoral acts as theft, addiction, prostitution. Happiness is miles away from these children. They hardly get two meals a day. These unlucky and helpless children can never think of delicious food, toys, new clothes even in their dreams.

The society just gets them abuse, exploitation and the sense of alienation only which develops exasperation towards the society in their hearts. Lack of food leads them to suffer from malnutrition. Moreover, there life is full of darkness even on the occasions of festivals. Altogether, these slum and street children live their life in darkness staying miles away from happiness of childhood.

Make A Wish Program is Fulfilling the Dreams of those marginalized children living in the remote areas.

Kwahu Plateau, Ghana Sports

What you will be doing?

During your volunteer placement, you will be working with the academy managers and the coach. Most activities are teaching during school sports lessons and after school academy football training. School sports lessons are held during assigned class periods and academy training with Coach dodu start from 3:30pm onwards at the Obomeng Park.

There are other training sessions in the morning which volunteers can be involved. The activities are weekend football matches, joint training and seasonal kicking off tournament by our Partners. All events are open for volunteer involvement.

What we expect from Volunteers:

As an organization that thrives on volunteer placement, we always appreciate people who have the intention to join our volunteer program and make a change or introduce new skills and integrity. We stick to goals of integrity and knowledge to help sustain our operations.

With this we expect volunteers to exhibit enthusiasm and great passion in all activities with our team. Volunteers are not mandated to bring along sports products as donations but the lack of more dynamic training tools and skills development materials makes it difficult for volunteers to involve players in related activities.

It's only nice to get something for the lads. Things that are mostly donated during volunteer placement are football, blazers, jerseys, boots, football and other things volunteers want to share with the academy.

CHILDCARE VOLUNTEER

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Working with kids

Volunteer Tasks
A childcare volunteer's help is always welcome by the staff at the centre who are constantly busy. Volunteers may be asked to assist with the bathing of the children, dressing them, feeding them, as well as helping to keep them entertained and happy.

Recreational Games
A childcare volunteer would be expected to teach the children some recreational games and activities. One of the best things that a volunteer could do is to play with the children. However, the volunteer must be aware that HIV infected children are prone to infections so games and activities must take this aspect into consideration.

Songs and Rhymes
One of the best ways to connect with children is by singing and dancing. Most kids like to sing and dance. Childcare volunteers may teach the children basic educational games through rhymes and fun songs and at the same time improve their English skills. Volunteers should do their homework prior to their placement and bring a repertoire of great songs & rhymes to teach various lessons.

Household Chores
A childcare volunteer may be asked to help in the general cleaning of the centre and help in the preparation and delivery of meals, as well as assist in maintaining an attractive appearance to the building and its grounds.
