Since 2003, Pasture Valley has welcomed men and women from the US, UK, Ghana, Norway, and elsewhere throughout the world as both short- and long-term volunteers. We are looking for responsible individuals or married couples with strong Christian values, a love for children, and a desire to help. Because of the wide range of activities in which Pasture Valley is involved, we accept volunteers with a wide range of skills, interests and experiences: everything from small business management to preschool to construction or maintenance.
Whatever your skill set, we can find a volunteer role for you at Pasture Valley!
Additionally, Pasture Valley is involved with a number of organizations that provide home-based care and palliative care for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, run support groups for people affected by HIV, provide trainings on HIV/AIDS and related health issues, do HIV testing and counseling, and conduct outreach activities to help impoverished families meet their needs for food, clothes, children’s school fees, and other basic needs. Volunteers with interest or prior experience in HIV or other health-related fields may be able to assist, on a part-time basis, with one or more of these projects.
Currently, Pasture Valley is working with a local NGO working to provide skills training in traditional and non-traditional handicrafts as well as business skills to women who have been abused, abandoned, widowed or otherwise affected by HIV. The project aims to provide useful experience, a reliable income and social support for all women involved, as well as acting as a forum to discuss key issues of HIV/AIDS prevention and other health issues. For this project, Pasture Valley is seeking volunteers with skills or experience in business, marketing, arts and crafts, skills training, grant-writing, or health education. If you are interested in assisting with this project, please specify your skills and experience on your application.
