Hope Development Volunteers

Hope Development Volunteers is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded in 2009 with offices in Uganda, with operations in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ghana, Zambia and Namibia.

Our mission: To maximize the benefits from tourism and travel of all kinds for the most vulnerable people in Africa and to involve as many people as possible in development work .

Many visitors to Africa witness the harsh realities of poverty at first hand. They then want to help, but are unsure how:

How should you respond to street children begging for food or money?
What are the issues surrounding many orphanages in Africa, and are there better alternative solutions for children in desperate need?
What makes a successful volunteer placement, and what can go wrong if these requirements are not in place?
How can you do something positive if you only have a day or two to spare?
Our Role – Matchmaker between organizations and volunteers
Those involved with running projects and other voluntary organizations know how difficult it is to obtain sufficient resources to undertake their work. This includes resources of all kinds: funding, human resources, materials etc.

Hope Development Volunteers works in cooperation with grassroots organizations in Africa. We support these organizations through recruitment of volunteers and grants to support their work and help increase their capacity. As part of our partnership with these organizations, Hope Development Volunteers has made certain aspects a priority, things we feel are very important in a working relationship and to make sure both sides benefit as much as possible.

The organizations Hope Development Volunteers works with in Africa were established and are run by native residents. They existed prior to Hope Development Volunteers’ involvement with them and run completely without interference from Hope Development Volunteers. Their main purpose is to support their local community: mainly children, youth and vulnerable adults.

The volunteer programs which Hope Development Volunteers promotes are owned and run by our partners. Even though Hope Development Volunteers often offers advice and support to our partners when setting up their volunteer program, the partner organization determines what the program consists of: content, finance and practical matters are all decided upon by the partner, before Hope Development Volunteers begins promoting the program to potential volunteers.

Hope Development Volunteers is a matchmaker with a dual role of providing the solutions for both the international volunteers and the not-for-profit organizations in Africa. We assure a good organization-volunteer match by gathering pertinent information about both prospective volunteers and non-profit organizations in Africa.

Thousands of people are anxious to donate their time and abilities but become frustrated because they don’t know where their talents are needed. At the same time, hundreds of African non-profit organizations are seeking competent volunteers to enable them to carry on their very important work.

As a service organization- Hope Development Volunteers matches volunteers with non-profit organizations in Africa that need them. Hope Development Volunteers runs a Volunteer Referral Service that assists not-for-profits to find the right volunteer for the right volunteer placements.

At Hope Development Volunteers offices we have information on a range of projects engaged in community development and support activities, and which supplement the work of the government.

All our member projects need your support and are well managed, financially transparent, and work in partnership with local people. Every project is different and requires different types of help. Call in and browse through their information, and talk to our staff. We can explain what each project does, and what sort of assistance it requires, such as:

funding – (day to day expenses, food, building projects, child sponsorship)
materials – (school equipment, books and pens, clothes, uniforms, building materials)
raising awareness of their activities
