In a bid to further expand the family, the organization released a call for volunteer that opened registration on the 1st and closed 14th of June, 2021. Through the 2 weeks of application, the organization received about 50 applications from enthusiastic and very keen individuals across the country. This was followed by a week of thorough evaluation and application review. Consequently, the most fit applicants were invited for an interview. The interview sought to meet the prospective volunteers, allow them meet the organization’s representative, give them necessary insights and definitely, get to know more about their capacity for the position that they had applied for.
The Successful volunteers were welcomed into and introduced to the organization in a very wonderful way.
