Volunteers

SRI has opportunities for local and international volunteers focused on areas of need within our program and activity areas.  We accept local and international volunteers including students, youths, womenand retired experts with skills and expertise that would be useful to our organization.

Interns are usually students who have just completed their college training and would like to gain some work experience from our organization.

We also have some few opportunities for students attachment especially for college students.

I have enjoyed my stay, especially on the construction site where I learned a lot about the culture of the locals with whom I worked.” Jackson too had this to say. “I loved the time I spent volunteering at SRI. I have always dreamt about giving back to the community, something I feel I have achieved here since the resource center we have left behind will surely positively change someone’s life. Thank you to the SRI family.” SRI is grateful for the support of the volunteers and wishes them the best in their future endeavors. We hope that we shall have more partnerships in the future.
