Volunteer in Malawi

Do you have skills and time to offer Krizevac Project?

None of the work we do would be possible without the input of some expert volunteers. We only recruit international volunteers where we are unable to fill the vacancy locally in Malawi; we do not aim to take away Malawian jobs. In fact all of our volunteers work to build the capacity of their Malawian colleagues and team through mentoring,support and leaving their skills behind by training their Malawian team. Have a look at the following video and check our current vacancies below, then please do give us a call to discuss!

 If you’re adventurous, joyful and want to change your own life as well as others, then one of the following roles may have your name on it…..
