Changing lives in Wales and Uganda

VOLUNTEERING

PONT is run by volunteers. It’s a key part of who we are because we believe there’s something special about people giving their time to help other people.

We get so much out of what we give to PONT! We’d love you to join us.

There are lots of ways you can help, Contact us and we’ll be in touch to chat through the options

We can link you up with a team of people already fundraise or we can give you the resources to do your own thing. Email us to get started. 

If you’ve got professional or academic experience in health, education, engineering or environmental issues, we can put you in touch with one of the relevant committees about giving your time either here or in Uganda. (That’s how PONT has grown!)

Are you good at writing, designing, making videos, telling stories? We can probably use your skills! Help us spread the word about what we do and share the stories of the people we work with in Uganda.

Got a good eye for detail?  If you could help us fill in applications or help us read through funders’ criteria, we could reach more people in Mbale (and you could learn a lot!) We really need people to help in this role and we’ll teach you what you need to know. It’s a good way to get to know PONT or learn about the charity sector.

Do you want to use your skills with spreadsheets and numbers for good? We need more people at the moment to join our finance volunteers in keeping records or to work with the reports we get from projects to show how they’re making an impact.

We always need people who are willing to help out with jobs like serving teas at events or taking minutes at a meeting and this can be an easy way to get involved and get to know us.

PONT is an umbrella organisation and we love to empower people to follow their own ideas. All the projects that are now up and running started with one or two people saying “could we…..?” so if that’s you, come and talk to us! (We are already having conversations around arts and culture and small business opportunities.)

Some employers will give you a certain number of days off each year to volunteer for a charity – we could make use of your skills.

Do you work in the public or voluntary sector in Wales? Would you like to spend 8 weeks in Uganda sharing expertise with Mbale CAP or one of their partner NGOs? The ILO scheme offers you the chance to develop your professional and leadership skills, funded by the Welsh Government’s Wales for Africa programme.

How do I start?

There’s no application process! Drop us a line or give us a call. If you know where you want to help out she can put you in touch with the right person. If you’re not sure we can have a chat on the phone or in person about what might suit you.
