Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Kabissa. We look forward to getting to know you! Please click the links below for details about how Kabissa volunteering works and to learn about vacancies we are actively working to fill at the moment. The application form is at bottom.
We are currently recruiting for the following positions. Click the links to read the full job description.
Kabissa is organized into four teams and a board of directors - all currently filled by volunteers with the exception of book keeper. Other volunteering opportunities, for example on web projects, may be offered separately.
You can still apply by filling in the application form at http://www.kabissa.org/about/volunteering. The volunteer coordinator will analyse your background and skills and might find a position for you in the volunteers team.
You can still fill in the online form now so that we have your details on record and can keep in contact with you. Or you can hold off applying until you are ready to volunteer.
Volunteers commit to positions for periods of either three or six months.
At quarterly evaluation meetings with the volunteering coordinator, the volunteer evaluates his/her performance and satisfaction in the position. Together they decide whether whether to continue on for another period and for how long.
We are gratified that many volunteers that are a good fit for the team choose to stay on for a year or even longer, either in the same position (which helps to provide continuity) or shifting periodically to new positions in order to gain experience with more aspects of operating Kabissa while helping to onboard and mentor new volunteers entering positions they have left.
It will depend on which role you are interested in. However, you will need to be open-minded, non-judgmental, be able to listen, learn, and work in a team. In most other roles, volunteers will usually need some form of prior experience.
We are flexible regarding hours as many people have other commitments outside of their voluntary work. Most of our volunteer roles require a few hours a week. There is a minimum of 10 hours/week. You should discuss with the volunteer coordinator, the time you have available, your interests, and skills, and how they fit with Kabissa.
Volunteers may leave the project or take some time out at any point if they feel unable to commit their time (e.g. for health reasons, study or paid employment). Where possible, we ask you to let us know with as much advance warning as possible if you are going to leave the project or need some time out.

Review vacancies and submit the form - the volunteer coordinator will then follow up with you as quickly as possible. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. Thanks!
All positions are unpaid. Kabissa is happy to provide you with reference letters or other acknowledgement of your contribution you may need. We welcome volunteers from organizations in Africa that seek to add Kabissa to their networking or tech promotion activities.
