COVID-19 Response
Other development programme/project experience
SODEIT Global Support Centre was established in April 2020 in response to Covid-19, Anglophobia Crisis and the ongoing local challenges to vulnerable communities in Cameroon. The support centre was launched with over 400 United Nations online volunteers who came together with one mission – to safeguard the vulnerable communities in Cameroon. The support centre operates virtually and is divided into 18 teams led by 30 team leaders from across the world who dedicate over 30 hours per week to this humanitarian aid. Each team member uses the skills learnt so far in life to build a safer, healthier and caring living environment with the other team members who they have not met before and for the people who they do not know so well. However, all of them have a common purpose and no matter how difficult the challenges may be, they are pursuing their best endeavours to change for good. The change has started in April and will be continuing with our global virtual support centre, a rather new concept we are implementing in the world. We welcome you to join and support as one of us.
Volunteers: 5 needed
11-20 hours per week / 20 weeks

Keep this in mind:

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV. By registering you accept that you do not make any financial claims to organizations or to UNV. See the Terms of Use for more about standards of conduct and the conditions for using this platform.
