There are many different ways you can help our project from wherever you are. Volunteers around the world help our center. Roles could vary from managing our Social Media, to designing posters, editing videos, contacting people on our behalf, creating inspirational materials, fundraising and much, much more. We just need people with a little bit of skill and a lot of desire to get involved. Your time commitments could vary from the odd half hour here and there to many hours a week, depending on what is feasible for you. If you are interested, please contact us and we can discuss where to go from there.

 

“I fell in love with the center during two short months in Bolivia and I wanted to stay involved after I left. 18 months on and I am still assisting the project, be it with accounts, the social media or the website. It is nice to spend an hour or two with a cup of tea and my laptop and be able to make a difference.”
