Summary

Onsite volunteering has dropped by 90% due to COVID19 globally. At VoluCulture, we have seen the effect of this pandemic on Kenyan grassroots nonprofit organizations. Many have lost access to onsite volunteers and lack the technology or training to adapt and reach virtual volunteers quickly. Through our online platform, grassroots nonprofits recruit and manage volunteers. We also offer support through volunteer management training to teach on partnerships, managing, and stewarding volunteers.

Challenge

Kenyan grassroots nonprofits have lost access to onsite volunteers due to COVID19. Some even closing due to lack of volunteer staff to help with day to day activities. Technological access and volunteer management training have also been barriers preventing them from efficiently and quickly adapting to virtual volunteerism on their own. For example, our nonprofit partner, Teresa, the Executive Director at Total Rehab Children Disability Center, lost all her volunteers supporting the children.

Solution

We provide an online platform that makes it easier for grassroots nonprofits to recruit and manage volunteers. We also offer support through volunteer management training to teach on management and stewarding of volunteers. Teresa was matched with Micheal, a volunteer, who created a new logo for the organization. Help us give 500 Kenyan grassroots nonprofit organizations the gift of virtual volunteers by giving them access to technology and volunteer management training. Donate Today!

Long-Term Impact

The online platform will remove technological and volunteer management barriers to 500 Kenyan grassroots nonprofits by giving them access to skilled and professional local and global virtual volunteers. The local and international community will gain knowledge into the significant work that grassroots nonprofit are doing. Virtual volunteerism is an impactful way of building effective grassroots organizations and healthy local communities. You can do it from the comfort of your sofa.
