A collaborative community of Ambassadors

Of course, we cannot be everywhere at once, and we do not want to be. Instead we want to build a collaborative community that believes in sharing successes and failures.

We do not believe in reinventing the wheel, and we are not professing to be experts in anything. What we care about is sharing positive stories in the hope that this will encourage more people to do more, experience more and share more.

Since 2012 we have identified 155 projects around Southern Africa. Many of these projects share their progress actively, however many do not or are unable to.

Furthermore, we have a handful of exceptional projects which we would like to keep an even closer eye on in order to promote them even more. In both these cases we need the help from an active community of volunteers and ambassadors.

Volunteers to participate on these projects and Ambassadors to help share these stories and keep the progress alive.

Who we need help from?

Our project list is ever growing. The more towns we visit the more projects we discover. And in some cases, these projects change, develop or merge. We need hands on the ground all over Southern Africa to let us know, in real-time, as things change for the better or worse.

If you have a vehicle and are willing and able to do project visits, volunteer collections and partner meetings then this might be perfect for you.

We also need representatives outside of South Africa to help with fundraising, events and our online course development.

What do we need help with?

South African Ambassadors: Monthly visits to projects within your area in order to:

  • Conduct project interviews
  • Take project and partner photos
  • Project filming
  • Get updates from projects and update website accordingly
  • Find out what current project needs and wishes are

International Ambassadors: Monthly support in everything from fundraising to online resources development:

  • Help develop and test online courses
  • Increase courses inclusivity by helping with transcripts, translations and more
  • Source international members and partners
  • Grow and support the community of supporters
  • Conduct interviews
  • Host livestreams
  • Host podcasts
  • Write blogs
  • Fundraising campaigns

How much time is needed?

We are unable to afford coverage of all these areas at full-time salaries and so the time you spend is up to you. We recommend about 2 days per month.

Where do we need help?

We are looking for ambassadors all over the world, but most importantly we would like people based in and around the following places (click on the place names for more information):

Western Cape

Eastern Cape

KwaZulu Natal

Limpopo

Gauteng

  • Johannesburg (mainly operating in the outskirts of Johannesburg)

Free State

Northern Cape

Mpumalanga

North West

International

  • No matter where you are located we need help and support. This could be reaching out to local universities, businesses or charities.

If you feel you have something to offer, then please let us know.
