Calling on All Volunteers: Volunteers Association of Zimbabwe Do you have a passion or burden to help someone in need? Do you believe in our Ubuntu culture of giving a helping hand to a needy neighbour, widow, orphan or elderly in your community? At VAZ we’re raising a reserve ‘army’ of like-minded individuals who stand ready to respond to the needs of our society as volunteers. We're taking volunteerism to the next level where there is room for everyone to give anything for a worthy cause. We're enrolling the following as potential givers of volunteer services: 1. Students who wish to volunteer as they fulfil their industrial attachment/work related learning requirement. High School students on long vacations are also welcome in this category. 2. Graduates who wish to exercise their expertise as they wait for a door of employment to open; it’s becoming a requirement the world over to demonstrate organised volunteering experience before being offered employment. 3. Retrenched / Retired Experts / Artisans who desire to keep their skills fresh and visible as they wait for the next assignment or to give back to their community at the end of their careers. 4. Practicing Experts / Artisans who desire to pledge a portion of their time and expertise for a worthy cause, it could be a few hours of your skills per month / quarter / year to respond to a needy neighbour.
If you feel your organization can benefit from any of the above categories of volunteers, we’re also calling upon you to register with us so we know who you are, what your needs are and how best we can respond to make our communities better places to live in. The following categories of organizations are encouraged to register: 1. Community based organizations (CBOs) in various fields of endeavour. 2. Non-government organizations (NGOs) across sectors. 3. Churches and religious organization home to the poor, widows and orphans. 4. Schools and other educational institutions. 5. Hospitals and Other social organizations like old people's homes, orphanages, etc. We're also challenging corporates (small and large) who wish to partner with us on this worthy cause to register with us your interests as partners in resourcing the cause through your CSR budgets or to help absorb our dedicated volunteers or mobilize your workforce to join the community initiative. Individuals who do not have time to give but feel challenged can also participate through donations in cash and kind including donating pre-loved items; we will find a home where they are still valued.
