  • Financial support to attend our inspiring annual trainings and meetings
  • Training by international experts on community organising

 What we ask of you:

  • Around 8 hours a month of your time
  • Being a support person for other volunteers in your community
  • Monthly calls with other organisers to share experience and plan for more action
  • Twice monthly coaching catch-up with the Community Manager
