Information Technology Volunteer Opportunities in Africa

Information Technology

 

Global Mamas is always in need of technology minded volunteers to help us improve our IT platforms and systems used to manage a very complex production model. Our IT projects range from assessing our existing systems and recommending improvements to more hands-on design and development of new databases that support our growing operations.

 

 

Whether as a short-term or long-term volunteer, your professional skills will be put to use and help make a difference in the lives of women in Africa, their families and their communities. At the same time, you will give purpose to your time off work.

Past Information Technology Projects

Nancy Totall - IT volunteer in Africa

Nancy Totall
San Diego, California


Nancy created a system to assist with the operational and production activities at Global Mamas various production sites. She also assisted Global Mamas in the following ways:

  • Created a new production management database that transformed the ability of the organization to manage our growth.
  • Trained staff on the use of the database.
  • Created generic data sets and “template” reports using ReportBuilder to provide the organization with more in-depth information on performance.

Nancy continues to volunteer for Global Mamas helping us to make on-going enhancements to the production database.

"The cultural aspect of our lives is much deeper than I ever imagined and can make working with other cultures more challenging, even beyond language or distance barriers. Something that seems innately offensive or the "right way", may be culturally learned and one should keep an open mind. So when someone shouts at you, "Obruni! Where are you going!?!", they may just want to help you find your way."
