Women's Empowerment Volunteer Opportunities in AfricaWomen's Empowerment


Global Mamas is committed to creating a life of prosperity for women in Africa. Prosperity, to us, is mufti-faceted. It means nutritional & health needs met, school fees paid, businesses expanded, money saved, and ultimately women empowered. To that end our women's empowerment volunteers help us design and deliver a variety of programs that help us measure the impact of our work and go beyond income generation.



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.

Chicago, Illinois

Robin was an integral part of the team that gathered qualitative and quantitative information for our 2011 Annual Report. Robin also helped Global Mamas in the following ways:

  • Coached new managers at the Pram Pram site on personnel management and staff development
  • Helped brainstorm on grant writing and fundraising
  • Interviewed over 30 women across the country to obtain data for annual report

"Working with Global Mamas taught me that women - regardless of where we live, what color our skin is, or how much money we have - are more alike than we are different. We all share many of the same thoughts, hopes, dreams and fears for ourselves and our loved ones. We are truly all Global Mamas."
