Full description:Water and sanitation is one of the major concerns of Helping Hands 4 Africa which aims at accessing safe water to vulnerable communities as well as improving on the poor sanitation hazards. As a developing nation, we have lost so many lives as a result of drinking contaminated water due to lack of safe water sources most especially I the rural communities.
Additional info:Volunteers are needed under this program to help in identifying and analyzing the current different challenges in targeted communities with specific priority to rural and peri-urban schools and communities.

Volunteers will also help in developing concepts and proposals that will be used to seek funds from potential donors that are interested in water and sanitation projects.

Volunteers will also participate in cleaning of water sources, protecting them from intruders that make them unsafe and improving on the poor sanitation hazards especially on solid waste management.

Volunteers will also participate in awareness campaigns such as the �€�safe water chain�€� program.

Volunteers will also help in installing water filters and rain water harvesting systems that are donated by our partners.

Volunteers will also help in advocacy campaigns, lobbying of resources and carrying out general fundraisings to support ne water and sanitation projects.

Maximum numbers of volunteers wanted are ten (10) and minimum volunteers wanted are one (1).

There is no prior experience required but any skills in water and sanitation projects are an added advantage.

Working days are from Monday-Friday and weekends are reserved for the volunteers to carry out any other personal work or tour around the country.
