Your business skills can help to create positive change in poor rural communities - you do not need to be Alan Sugar, but if you’ve ever dabbled in sales, marketing, finance, planning or communications you can help rural entrepreneurs build a brighter future.
Raleigh is looking for volunteers aged 18 and over for this life-changing, government-funded volunteering programme - International Citizen Service (ICS).
Spend 10 weeks to 8 months supporting young entrepreneurs in Tanzania to set up businesses that will help them contribute to their local community and work their own way out of poverty. Raleigh ICS Entrepreneur is a great chance to develop skills and gain experience.
You could be involved in market research, awareness raising, training, and business development. The actual volunteer project you work on will be determined after your application, as all projects are designed around local needs which can change. Your work as a Raleigh volunteer will have a positive impact long after you have returned to work at home.
Projects can involve building community resilience and developing youth leaders. Raleigh also operates under these themes as part of their ICS Entrepreneur programmes in Nicaragua, where spoken Spanish is required to take part.
