The school is open for students at any age and has currently 25 children enrolled in private as well as group classes and another 30 children on its waiting list. The school is located above the Hospital.

Do you need help from volunteers to support you in your social or development work?  

To register as a potential recipient of volunteer support, send in full details about you or your organisation, specifying the social or development work you are engaged in - and, if relevant, highlighting any of the MDGs (see below) that your work may help achieve. Give details of the specific role the volunteer(s) would have, what skills or qualities they would need to have, and if relevant, when (e.g. what times) you would need them to come, and for how long they would be needed. Note that volunteers would not be expecting to receive any salary; however, contributions towards any costs they incur (e.g. travelling to/from your institution) can be offered. Some hosts of volunteers may like to offer certificates to volunteers who hade successfully completed their assignments.

Send in your application for registration, by e-mail or in hard copy, to the VIB Committee, whose address appears at the foot of this page. Please indicate if you would be willing to have the information you provide advertised on this web-page.
