Is volunteering at AJESH for me?
Volunteering in a developing country for a community and peopled centred organisation is task demanding and thus requires candidates who are ready to MULTITASK. There are certain personal characteristics that, if you possess, will make it easier for you to adapt to the local people’s way of life thus, you’ll enjoy your stay in Cameroon.
Are you flexible, non-judgmental, tolerant, resourceful/creative and inquisitive? Do you like asking questions, learning by doing, exchanging knowledge and sharing skills? Are you compassionate, hard working, adventurous and willing to learn? If you think you posses such characteristics, then you are the appropriate person we look forward to work with here in Cameroon. Above all you must be open minded to new experiences, different cultures and ways of life. Come and work with us, prepared to immerse yourself in local community and it will be a rewarding and exciting journey.
