The National Volunteer Programme (NVP) presents a way of connecting the human resources needs of a charity nongovernmental institution or a not for profit – the beneficiary institutions, and the skills and interests of the volunteers who would like to make a difference, and companies interested in volunteering their employees for a particular cause.
Institutions often have multiple and diverse needs – in administration, human resources management, training employees, teaching beneficiaries, fundraising, website maintenance etc. All of these needs require a professional skill set which can be difficult to afford with a limited budget which has a primary objective to cater to beneficiaries and communities.
Our programmes represent the volunteer opportunities available in various beneficiary institutions which have signed on to the National Volunteer Programme. The beneficiary institutions have been divided into different categories depending on the type of work performed by the beneficiary institution.
