Volunteer with MDO
Volunteer Opportunities at Mutual Development Organization (MDO)
At Mutual Development Organization (MDO), we welcome individuals interested in volunteering to contribute to the positive impact on society. We offer a unique opportunity for volunteers to join us at our village operations base, where they can engage in various activities, including teaching at ‘The Aapswara Community Education Project.’ This project provides free education to 70 children, and volunteers can actively participate in teaching academics, sports, music, and arts at our schools. Additionally, volunteers can contribute to agriculture and construction work. We believe that through these activities, our volunteers can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.
We provide comfortable accommodation and three meals a day, sourced from our organic farm, for a fee of $15 per day. The fees go towards supporting student sponsorships and school administration costs. By joining us at MDO, volunteers can make a difference in the lives of underprivileged communities and gain valuable experiences that will last a lifetime.
