    Hello, great to cross paths with you! I'm Laura a Kiwi (from New Zealand) living in Nacala, Northern Mozambique! I've been in Northern Mozambique 9 years as I am founder of a small grass roots, Christian faith based non profit .

    We work to empower and equip vulnerable young women with true identity, education, new skills and employment. We teach artisanal skills, hospitality, beauty, health, literacy, identity, and small business as our goal is to open social business for them in future for them to have employment.

    we are looking for some specialised volunteers in the following areas to help us in the areas we work...

    - Mechanic - we have a 2001 Landrover Defender 110 that needs some help getting back on the road.
    - Barista
    - sewing / experienced in sewing and able to assist in teaching out local team specific new designs.
    - Hairdresser - we plan on launching a hairdressing course and adding hairdressing to our salon. Someone experienced enough to train in an intensive block course washing, cutting, styling, treatments, and basic coloring.
    - Nail technician - to help us refresh our training across areas of our nail bar.
    - Cook/ chef/ baker - someone experienced in cooking and baking able to help teach the basics of a kitchen as well as brunch focused food and baked goods/bread.

    We're right on the Indian ocean which means swims after work on hot days, fresh seafood from the market, snorkelling or boat rides on weekends and a beautiful view. We’re 30 minutes from Nacala city (assessable with public transport) And we're only 2 hours drive from the beautiful historic Island of Mozambique with stunning Portuguese heritage homes and Mozambican culture! Here in Northern Mozambique it's summer all round!

    Myself and our team would would love to hear from you.

    PLEASE NOTE as we are a formal organisation working with vulnerable people we do have an application process for anyone wishing to volunteer their time with us. We assess every application, however placement as a volunteer within the organisation is dependent on an approved application and space within our volunteer program.
