Opportunity Description:

Anike Foundation is seeking volunteers to work with our partner organizations to research, develop, and submit grant proposals. We have over 200 organizations seeking funding to meet the needs of their communities such as education, vocational training, clean water and sanitation, health care, and women’s rights. Anike grant writers help to match the needs of our partner organizations with possible funders and then guide the organizations step-by-step through the grant proposal development and submission process.

Why Volunteer With Us?

At Anike Foundation, we believe that access to quality education is a basic human right. Sadly, millions of children in Africa lack this access. We provide essential educational materials and resources to African youths. We have helped thousands of people in several African countries, but millions more are yearning for help. We rely on a strong volunteer base and the generosity of individuals and corporations.

Volunteering with us will enable you to build your resume and gain invaluable experience in an environment of supportive people that are always willing to help you.
