Skills Based Volunteering

We are looking for skilled people to help us with the following:

  • We need an IT Specialist or a computer whiz who will be able to help us set up computers to put in computer labs at our partner organisations.
  • Better SA is looking for auditors to audit our annual financials for a reduced rate or take Better SA on as a pro bono client.
  • Are you a social media whizz? We need to improve our followings and interaction rates on all social media platforms and are looking for an expert to help us do this.
  • Better SA would welcome assistance from any event organisers looking to plan and host events to raise funds for Better SA. We have great fundraising event ideas but do not have the manpower or financial resources to bring these ideas to life.
