Database Development Volunteer Opportunities in Africa

Database Development 


Global Mamas is always looking to improve and expand the systems that run our expanding organization. We always have exciting projects (we think they are exciting) for volunteers with experience in developing databases. We have systems running on Access and have future projects in mind just waiting for new volunteers.

Past Database Development Projects

Daniel Stotts - Information Technology volunteer in Africa

Daniel Stotts
Kansas City, Missouri

Daniel helped Global Mamas create a new and very comprehensive database system that streamlines the ordering and inventory processes. To create the database, Daniel did the following:

  • Installed Biometric scanner and configured application software
  • Assessed and documented process flows
  • Created access databases for inventory, sales, and procurement management

"This experience for me brought home the necessity of organizations like Global Mamas. As I saw the sense of fulfillment and pride from those Global Mamas as they performed their business, I knew that they probably wouldn't have these opportunities were it not for the organization. That motivated me to do my part and make the most of the experience. Probably the most memorable moment was when I stepped on the flight home knowing that I did something good and how worth it all the sacrifices were to come to Ghana."
