The need in developing countries for mature volunteers, who have professional qualifications and skills such as accountancy, IT, construction and teaching, has never been greater.
The opportunity to share these skills, knowledge and enthusiasm with those less fortunate is an extraordinary privilege, and can be a life-changing experience for all concerned.
The variety of projects that involve Trade Aid in Mikindani means that we have need of volunteers who are trained accountants, hoteliers, IT specialists or teachers, or those who are trained in business management, construction and building conservation, marketing and the tourism industry.
Our volunteers go to the projects with a specific skill, where they advise and train locally employed staff in that skill.
We believe that by training local people we can help them to find work to support themselves and their families. In this way, we are helping to tackle poverty through sustainable employment.
