Do you have some spare time to volunteer?
Perhaps you were a volunteer games maker at the 2012 Olympics, or just have some spare time to give to a worthwhile project? If so, we would love to hear from you. We always need additional help on the fund raising side and sometimes we need help on projects in Kenya.
Everyone at Osiligi gives their time and expenses freely and if you are able to, we would ask you to volunteer on the same terms.
On the fund raising front, we need help contacting charitable trusts and philanthropists for possible funds, help with putting on fund raising events and help wading through the various government and other large sources of funding. Possibly you have more experience than us in this area and can bring your own ideas.
We have the 2nd half of the school to build in 2014, so time is running out for this major financial project.
All our paperwork is designed by amateurs, so anyone there who can help us? We would be happy to promote your graphics design business in exchange.
What ever your strengths, Please email us with the following information:
- Your name
- Telephone number
- When available and for how long
- A brief description of relevant skills
- How you think you can help us
Please note that we do not ask people to go to Africa to paint schools, hospitals or to do other menial tasks. We believe that these tasks are best done by the locals who would love to have a job. Just a small fraction of the air-fare will pay a month’s wage for a local person. The only people we ask to go are those with specialist knowledge that can help install a project and train the local people.
Do you have any experience with clean water projects? Perhaps in drilling boreholes, tapping springs or building wells? If so, we would love to hear from you.
Our events page gives some ideas for putting on your own event.
