What is the need ?
Millions of NGOs are working in the social sector across diverse areas like education, environment, health & hygiene, empowerment of women/children/differently abled/elderly/migrants/other minority groups, skill development, entrepreneurship, livelihood development, urban & rural development and much more. Many such NGOs are doing incredible work in their area but are somewhere facing resource crunch. Lack of human resources is one of the biggest blocks in their work.
Engaging volunteers is only one aspect of the solution. Turning these volunteers into valuable resources for NGOs working in different areas, is the need of the hour. Being Volunteer focuses on nurturing such volunteers, building their capacity and helping them make time donation a part of their lives.
What do we do?
Scope of WorkBeing Volunteer’s scope of work spans across volunteering based projects in the areas of education, environment, sanitation, rural development, etc. to name a few, with required prior training to the volunteers.
Working modelBeing Volunteer connects with NGOs who need Volunteers. According to their requirement, a programme is worked out and a training module for volunteers is designed. Once the volunteers are trained, they are associated with the NGO to carry out the required volunteering work. These volunteering tasks can be short-term or long-term. New volunteers are engaged in short-term activities while experienced and trained volunteers are engaged in long-term activities.
