Volunteer Fundraisers Needed for Africa-based Nonprofit
RISEUP MALAWI INC
RiseUp Malawi is a small nonprofit making big impact in the rural community of Mangochi, Malawi. Our 4 educational programs are designed to bring economic opportunity to youth and their families in one of the poorest corners of the world. Everyday, youth in Malawi face tremendous barriers to education & economic opportunity among these some of the highest rates of child marriages & HIV/AIDS in the world, malnutrition, malaria & vicious, generational cycles of poverty.
But YOU can join us this year and put an end to this. YOU can bring education to children who need it the most. Because every child deserves an education.
We know 2020 has been a challenging year for the entire world, so we are looking for extra hands to help us with our online fundraising this holiday season to ensure we raise enough to keep our programs fully operating in 2021. We have two campaigns- one for #GivingTuesday, and one for Year End.
All you have to do is get to know our work a little bit & spread the word using your networks. Giving back has never been so easy! And for those of you looking to add to your resume, fundraising is an amazing accomplishment to add no matter what field you're going into.
There are no real requirements for this position other than that you have a passion for giving back. Ideally you are also active on Facebook or Instagram. If you are not active on social media, you can still play a critical role through email and text messages, so this is really an opportunity for all.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit providing educational support to orphaned and at-risk children in Mangochi, Malawi. Every year the people of Malawi face life-threatening diseases in the form of malaria & HIV/AIDS, leaving thousands of children orphaned or struggling to pay for daily needs & education. Our goal is to provide the educational and livelihood support necessary for these children to have a future of self-reliance and hope.
RiseUp Malawi currently supports 10 youth in educational scholarship for secondary education (highschool). Over the past 5 years we have provided over 85 mosquito nets to the community of Mangochi as well as 3,500 kgs. of maize in food aid. We run a free youth entrepreneurship program in the village that teaches children computer skills and in 2018 we launched a music program to give young adults a safe space to express themselves and use song to talk about sensitive issues like HIV/AIDS, child marriages, etc.
