What is the benefits?

Volunteering with OUAGANET will provide you with the opportunity to understand the needs and suffering of rural villagers in Burkina Faso.  You are given a great latitude to contribute however you choose without pressure of time and results. You will be given the opportunities to put your skills to work and you may even discover through the process that you have other hidden talents that were untapped. Most people achieve a sense of satisfaction by being able to volunteer for the social good which is not always the case in other jobs.Finally, the volunteering can be used in resumes as job experience.
