Genevieve’s Fair Trade Village (GFTV) accepts volunteers on an adhoc basis to assist with specific projects to help grow our social enterprise and enable us to support more people in the community. The aim of our volunteering activities is to reduce poverty for local people living with disabilities by developing their skills and knowledge so that they can earn a sustainable income.
Our volunteer activities focus on working with local people in designing and creating handicrafts using local seeds, natural, and recycled materials, or learning new organic farming techniques.
Volunteer positions may include; fashion designers, jewellery designers, artists and people with craft skills to assist with the design of handicrafts that can be made by local artisans and sold at the village shop. Or gardening enthusiasts, project managers and labourers to assist with gardening and small building projects at Full Belly Farm.
We regard our volunteers as the experts with lots to share with the local people and we figure out how that will happen together on an individual basis. We are keen to ensure that all volunteers get their needs met from their volunteering experience with GFTV. There isn't any clock punching, we want our volunteers to "hang with the people" to be free and playful.
