The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Nka Foundation exists to serve underserved communities in Africa and similar places with a focus on the arts and design.
Nka Foundation began in 2005 and exists to serve underserved communities in Africa through projects in the arts and architecture. We do this by creating a network of arts villages where the global community comes to engage in projects to inspire the needy communities to sustainable development. Nka Foundation’s arts village projects draw on asset-based approach to community development through the tapping of existing, but often unrecognized abundant local resources to help the rural community drive their development process. This involves creative research and use of local materials and vernacular methods used in the region to create arts and design products.
Throughout the year, the Foundation organizes international workshops that invite volunteer-sending organizations, university students, arts and design professionals and international development experts to immerse in the local lifestyle and collaborate with the local people on projects for exchange of knowledge and skills.
Nka is looking to partner with like-minded organisations, companies and community-spitited individuals from around the globe. Contact: email@example.com / www.nkafoundation.org
