Role description:
We are a fast growing charity involved in supporting those most in need in Burkina Faso in West Africa, one of the least developed countries in the world. We are involved in education ( both school and vocational education ), healthcare, agriculture and clean water projects.

Many of our projects are funded by regular donations, but others rely on income from grants to be sustainable and as we've substantially increased our number and range of projects, we would like to recruit a volunteer to help in this area.

Skills and behaviours needed for the role:
Experience of grant fundraising or an attention to detail.

Will there be a DBS check? No

Driving Licence required? No

Volunteer's own vehicle required? No

Suitable for:
Ongoing Volunteering
Short term Volunteering
Skilled Volunteer
Vision impaired
Wheelchair users

What will the volunteer gain/benefit from:
Knowledge and experience of grant fundraising. Satisfaction of volunteer work is very high as any money raised goes so much further in Africa, and it's wonderful to see the impact we can make to the lives of some of the worlds poorest people.

When are volunteers needed: No specific time. Most work would be done from home with occasional Line Manager meetings, which could be daytime, evening or weekends to suit the volunteer.

How to get involved:
