Better Family Foundation
Focus: Community and Education.
Better Family Foundation is a small NGO that focuses our work efforts within three programming areas: Infrastructure Development (water projects, etc), Education (seminars based on empowerment), Direct Financial Support (Child Sponsor Project, etc.).
Our goal is to empower families socially and economically. To do this, we work with local school children, community groups, some governmental offices and also entire villages. Our projects are contingent available funding, we operate with very low resources. To see our most up-to-date projects and activities it is important to visit our website.
Costs & Benefits
Volunteers should expect to work approximately 20-30 hours per week. Work places are likely to be in our office or within the field. Activities may include project oversight, project development, fundraising/online social marketing, and project execution. Often, our volunteers arrive with very specific volunteer objectives.
It is essentially impossible for us to tell you exactly what you will be doing, so it is important you contact us so we may discuss the potential timing of your arrival and work opportunities that will coincide with your trip.
In country cost depends entirely on your needs/expectations.
We estimate approximately $10.00 USD/day will cover the following over a one-month period:
Lodging: 75,000 CFA (150 USD)/month
Food: 1,500 CFA ($3USD)/ day
Travel/Recreation: 2,500 CFA ($5USD)/ day
Total: 360 USD/ month
Do note this is a very generous budget with plenty of room to make it more affordable.
Also, the lodging option we have here is the Home-Stay optional where the family will provide you breakfast and dinner every day so the food budget may easily be reduced.
We are a small NGO with small capital resources so we require all of our volunteers to be imaginative, resourceful, motivated, flexible, and self-guided. Also volunteers who are good with critical and systematic thinking are ideal. The only language requirement is English. The minimum volunteer age is 19 years old.
