Volunteer Globally 2018

Volunteer Globally 2018

Volunteer Globally, one of the main pillars of our community outreach activities, offers members of the UAE community a rare chance to join the Dubai Cares team in a developing country to construct a school.

We are looking for volunteers who are 21 years and above, UAE residents, enthusiastic about social work and physically capable of performing construction work and adapting to the working conditions and routine of life in the village, to join us for the first and second editions of Volunteer Globally 2018 which will respectively take place between September 2 and 8 in Senegal and between October 30 and November 6 in Nepal. 

Selected volunteers will join us in digging, picking, sifting, mixing concrete, making bricks, carrying water and tying rebar. Worksite activities will also be combined with cultural education workshops. Volunteers will be staying in an accommodation within close proximity to the school site and the community benefitting from the project. 

Do you think you have what it takes? To apply for the first edition of Volunteer Globally 2018 in Senegal, please complete the application form no later than Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 10:00 AM. To apply for the second edition of Volunteer Globally 2018 in Nepal, please complete the applications form no later than Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 10:00 AM.

We will be shortlisting the applications to 50 per edition based on the answers you provide to the last question while prioritizing volunteers who sign up first. The 50 shortlisted volunteers for the Senegal edition will be invited for one-on-one interviews between June 10 and 13, while the shortlisted volunteers for the Nepal edition will be invited for one-on-one interviews between July 1th and 5th. Following the interview process, we will notify the selected volunteers who will travel to Senegal and Nepal. An additional 15 volunteers per edition will be placed on a waiting list.

The volunteers will receive a comprehensive briefing ahead of the trip, which will cover the ground situation in both countries, socio-economic background as well as an overview of the activities that will be undertaken as part of the school construction.

Dubai Cares will finance the trip and this includes cost for visa, travel, accommodation, food and beverage, travel supplies and safety equipment. We expect the volunteers to cover the cost of vaccination, malaria tablets and medical checkups which are mandatory and vary from one country to another.

Upon return to Dubai, all volunteers will receive a Certificate of Appreciation from Dubai Cares.

 

PS: Applicants can apply to one edition only of Volunteer Globally 2018
