Club of Friends of Island of Hope – ways of active participation

The Club of Friends of Island of Hope is looking for volunteers, sponsors and friends who would like to participate in co-creating of this specific developing project to enable its further development towards self-reliance and sustainability. We still have a long way to go and need lots of enthusiasm, creativity, new ideas and financial support. We offer an opportunity to do something meaningful, learn more about interesting subject matter, and help hundreds of people living in the poorest conditions on this planet and positively influence their lives.

Everybody can get involved in his/her area of interest and expertise. Everybody has some contacts that could be useful. Even just gathering information is of great help – for example finding and contacting people or firms that produce playgrounds, sending them an e-mail, asking for a gift… maybe somebody will reply. Who decides to donate computers can use it as their PR. We are also in need of specialised knowledge - helping the social worker in the orphanage, agriculture consultancy, instructors for methodological seminars for teaches, etc.

Promotion is also very important for us. The more people hear about us, the bigger chance for the project to keep developing. It is very helpful when somebody writes and article about us, organizes a photo exhibition (we provide the materials) or a benefit event. We would be more than happy to come and make a presentation if you provide space and help us with organisation.
