Discover Africa in Cameroon’s sandy beaches, explore active volcanoes, and play your part either on-site or online in the fruition of REWAC’s mission: to “provide quality humanitarian assistance at the grassroots level in favor of the empowerment and the achievement of sustainable livelihood amongst vulnerable migrants.”
Practical NGO volunteering placements: Lend us a hand in the heart of Cameroon! During your on-site placement with REWAC, you will experience the power of inter-cultural exchange – working with local and international volunteers, the indigenous ethnic ‘Baka’ group and our community of migrants from over 26 countries. Help REWAC combat the refugee crisis by promoting welfare programs and legal support, and delivering life-changing aid.
There is no fee to volunteer with REWAC, whilst on-site volunteers are required to cover their own subsistence costs. REWAC supports volunteers with pretrip assistance (including choosing your accommodation), airport pick up and drop off, on-site orientation and social activities free of charge. Volunteers may stay on-site for a minimum of 2 weeks to 9 months. The minimum age for on-site volunteering is 18, with placements available for Individuals, Groups, Retirees, Disabled.
Online volunteers are tasked with managing REWAC’s online presence and creating impactful stories to attract supporters and donors. Volunteers may also assist in identifying possible beneficiaries in the local community who are in need of financial assistance, and developing fundraising proposals to support their needs. No professional experience is needed, but if you consider yourself savvy in communication, research, photography, or social media, then you could be a perfect fit! REWAC is currently open to accepting applications from all volunteers, but are particularly interested in digital marketing and video volunteers:
It may be possible to receive college credit for the volunteer placement and it can also be pursued as an internship. Please inquire to learn more about how to set up a for-credit placement.
