We may be small, but our opportunities are big!

Volunteers are the unsung heroes of the charity sector and we applaud anyone who is willing to give up their time to make a difference to people’s lives. We are committed to aiding development here at Ripples Foundation: whether that be for a whole African community or for a committed volunteer wanting to learn new skills.

We are on the lookout for volunteers and have a number of different ways you can contribute and help us make change happen. Take a read through the options below to find out more about our volunteering programmes and how to apply!

We have plenty of work on offer for willing volunteers, so why not join one of our small teams at our office in the UK? We’re a friendly bunch and are keen to help you get the most out of your experience as possible.
Volunteering with us will allow you to see how an international charity runs, as well as getting vital experience of working in a busy office in a wide variety of areas:

  • Media
  • Admin
  • Fundraising
  • Local Project

Do you want to put your skills to use on life-changing projects? Why not join our volunteering teams in your country if you are located in either Nigeria or Ghana to see our projects with your own eyes?
We always need skilled volunteers on hand to assist on our women and children’s projects, so if you are a professional in your field, we need you!

The main jobs that we have on offer are:

  • Teachers
  • Doctors/Nurses
  • Builders
  • Farmers
  • Film Makers/Photographers
  • General Administrative

If you are qualified for these roles or think you have the skills to help us in any other way, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
