Rwanda is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but there is much more to this fascinating country than what the average tourist sees. There are large social inequalities and the growing population is putting more and more pressure on nature. Countless NGOs and other projects, in addition to government programmes, work hard to help people in great need and to protect animals and their habitats. Their work would not be possible without local and international volunteers.
Whether you have volunteered before or whether it is the first time, below we give you some basic information about volunteering in Rwanda, what you need to consider in finding your ideal project and how we select the projects we offer.
This is a very good project in particular for the volunteer groups who can spend at least five days engaged in activities linked to never again projects such as human rights advocacy and community development, human rights and empowerment debates, social development and other reconciling topics to create understanding for both the Rwandan youth and our partners, friends and visitors. Never again also teaches Rwandan youth between the age of 18 – 24 years lessons hinged on skills development such that they become self reliant. The skills provided include hotel and tourism management, Information Communication Technliogy (ICT), Modern farming (agriculture), Biogas production, Sewing and Tailoring. Many students will benefit from such training and hence acquire knowledge, skills and attitude to make them self-reliant in future.
