What do volunteers do?

This is a question we are often asked when individuals make an initial enquiry about undertaking a volunteering period in Sitima.

In this rural part of Malawi, there are very few services and resources are exceptionally limited so when a volunteer brings their own unique enthusiasm and skill, maybe in sport, craft, gardening or entrepreneurship there are always willing locals wanting to get involved.

Here in UK we also have a merry band of volunteers who compile newsletters, give presentations to church and community groups as well as those who steer the charity through serving as a trustee.

All prospective volunteers irrespective of the role they are interested in, are interviewed and undertake a DBS check
