Volunteering? Blessed Vision is the right palce for your palcement!
We accept and welcome individuals, families, and organisations who would like to volunteer. Intending volunteers in any of our programmes should contact the Volunteers' coordinator.
Volunteers can also take part in our programs wherever they are by; collecting children items, raising awareness on the needs of children, organizing fundraising events or simply letting people know about our work.
The organization also recorganises the importance of child protection, and therefore we have a Child Protection Policy that every volunteer has to agree to before getting involved with children. This is aimed at reducing the risks of child abuse and exploitation. For further enquiries about how you can get involved, please contact us directly.
We welcome you to be part of this life changing cause as we aim to develop a global partnership for development (MDG 7). More details on how you can be a volunteer.
