Volunteer at the Africompassion Community Center Project

Project Overview

By volunteering at a community center, individuals will get the opportunity to come into contact with a number of different local demographics, all of whom actively use the Volunteer for Africompassion Community Center on a weekly basis.

The Community Center in Kogaja  Village - Rorya District in Mara regionthe hearts of all Volunteer for the AFCOO activities, acting as a staging area for its various welfare projects.It’s from here that staff and volunteers coordinate the various social welfare projects for Child Sponsorship ProgramS and Community Program.

These activities include coordinating a Empowerment Project for local women called the Mother’s Club that involves skills training, livelihood and micro financing projects, and conducting activities with other community groups such as a skills training and peer bonding groups for local adolescents.

Interactive Seminars are also conducted with other groups such as parents of the children enrolled on our Child Sponsorship Program.

Volunteers who have special talents or skill sets can easily transfer their knowledge onto the Community Center clients by liaising closely with Volunteer for the AFCOO staff. Amongst all qualities needed for volunteers, a volunteer working in a community center must be able to show initiative and undergo tasks without the need for constant supervision – this can often be difficult, but at the same time, the end results can be extremely rewarding. In recent years, volunteers participating at the Community Center have developed long term livelihood projects as well as offered suggestions and advice to micro-financing projects.
