We are excited to announce our latest volunteer programme in South Africa.

What Will You be Doing as a Business and Marketing Volunteer Day-to-Day?
The business and marketing programme offers you the opportunity to examine the central issues facing developing countries in today’s globalised world and to learn practical skills that will enable you to work in business, social enterprise and NGOs. This programme not only addresses the theories of development, but actively examines how development works practically in the field in developing and developed countries. You will be able to analyse in detail how development projects are designed, implemented and managed. The programme enables the learning of participatory approaches to development that are designed to mobilise people to actively take part in their own development. It equips the students with the understanding of the role that NGOs can play in promoting social and economic progress.
