Volunteer With Us
Are you interested in helping us put an end to FGM, child marriages and other forms of violence against women and young girls?
Here at NAFGEM, we run several programs to empower women involving community outreach education through trainings, seminars and workshops. We also have safe houses for girls who have run away from early marriage and/or FGM. Volunteer work can involve assisting the girls at the safe house with homework and business/vocational skills. There is also the opportunity for volunteers interested in assisting with office work, marketing, fieldwork and research. This project would be ideal for those interested in social work or gender studies and the nature of your work would depend on your background and length of stay.
To apply, please email your resume and a cover letter outlining your objectives for volunteering with NAFGEM to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your application is successful, you will be served with an agreement, terms of reference, and an orientation package upon arrival. We also request contribution of 200,000 Tanzanian Shillings (approx. $100) per person for petty costs.
Volunteers are responsible for all costs associated with volunteering, including accommodation for the duration of their stay, transport, meals and clothing. It is also recommended that volunteers bring an unlocked mobile phone and laptop for use during office hours.
Due to limited resources to respond to volunteers, we would appreciate your efforts in consolidating any questions in your email application so that we can best respond at the time of reviewing your application.
