Youth In Action Against Poverty and HIV/AIDS,Business Development Volunteer in Tanzania



Volunteer Opportunity description

YAAPHA works with small women groups in the Kilimanjaro villages in micro entrepreneur projects. We seek loans from differ
ent organizations both governmental and non governmental to implement micro businesses thus creating employment for the women groups we work with.
The organization welcomes volunteers to come and help them on their micro entrepreneur projects. We lack funds to employ staff, in this area and tend to relay on volunteer support.
Volunteers would be working to train the local women on how to manage their businesses. To teach them business skills/strategies, teach them basic accounting techniques and help them create and develop businesses that are applicable to the environment in which they live.
The micro entrepreneur volunteer may also be asked to help with administration work. A volunteer with business knowledge would be very useful at this placement this could be someone currently in business school or a graduate.
Volunteer Tasks Required.
Business Management Training
A micro entrepreneur volunteer may be required to provide training to women groups. Most of the women group members don't have skills on how to manage businesses. The volunteer together with the local staff will engage on training the groups the basic ways of managing their businesses.
Assist on Creating Businesses
A micro entrepreneur volunteer may be required to help the women groups on developing and creating their own micro businesses, as most of the women group members don't have the skill to develop their own business.
Basic Accounting
A micro entrepreneur volunteer may be required to provide training on basic accounting, as many of the women don't have accounting knowledge. The volunteer would be expected to give them basic training on accounting skills so that they could manage to run their micro businesses.
Business Assessment
A micro entrepreneur volunteer may be required to work on assessing the running businesses; to ensure that each member of the group is running the business well. If there are challenges the volunteer would be expected to outline the challenges and provide solutions to the troubled areas.
