About African Revival
African Revival is a growing, ambitious charity with around 20 staff based at offices in London (UK), Gulu (Uganda) and Kalomo (Zambia). We believe education is the key to overcoming poverty, and our vision is an Africa where every child has equal access to quality education. Known for our holistic, responsive and innovative approach, we work with primary and nursery schools in Uganda and Zambia, two of the poorest countries in the world, to allow every child to fulfil their potential. We don’t just build classrooms, we empower whole communities – pupils, teachers and parents – to transform government and parent-run schools into thriving learning environments that build brighter, better futures. Established in 2004, we are now looking for a step-change in growth in income to deliver our strategic vision.
We are looking for passionate, motivated and enthusiastic individuals to help us organise and carry out successful bucket collections in local streets, stores and tube stations in October 2015. We will provide support and materials (including African Revival t-shirts and buckets). Once we know your availability, we will fit you onto a rota and give you a full introduction to collecting.
Responsibilities may include:
Attending street/store/tube collections and collecting money from the public to support African Revival’s work
Helping recruit other volunteers e.g. family, friends, students
Counting and banking cash
Supporting the publicity of the collection by liking/sharing posts on social media No experience necessary.
This role would suit someone who is looking for short term volunteering experience, who enjoys talking to members of the public, has good organisational skills, is happy to speak to other volunteers on the phone and is good at cash handling. An interest in international development and education would also be a bonus. Most importantly, volunteers should be enthusiastic and organised.
In return for volunteering with us, you will receive the following:
Reimbursement for any pre-agreed travel expenses Fundraising and volunteering experience which will look great on your CV
Support from the fundraising team including t-shirts, buckets etc.
The opportunity to be part of a fantastic and exciting community fundraising campaign
The chance of a great reference
The knowledge that you have contributed to vital education work in Zambia and Uganda
