The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found. Please click here to read more and access the application questions.

In Canada:

The Canadian office (Ottawa) has a very small staff so volunteers are key to keeping our office running smoothly. Volunteer positions range from general office administration to specialized positions revolving around technical skills.

Please email marlene@helplesotho.org if you are interested in volunteering in the Ottawa office.

In Lesotho:

Help Lesotho does not have the capacity to absorb a large number of volunteers. The head office in Lesotho is a small town about 2 hours from the capital city. Volunteers must bring a range of skills and experiences that will benefit the programs and projects on the ground. Volunteer positions range from construction, project management, psycho-social support, teaching/tutoring and facilitation.

Current Opportunities:
– Qualified teachers/tutors (ESL, math, science) to work in the Hlotse Centre. Minimum 2 month commitment.

For those Basotho seeking volunteer placements in our organization in Lesotho, please note that we occasionally select volunteers who are graduates of our intensive youth leadership training program in Hlotse living close enough to reach our two centres on a daily basis.

Please email info@helplesotho.org if you are interested in volunteering in Lesotho.
