Moving can be daunting! Volunteering is one great way to settle into a new community, meet people and learn valuable skills. Ameriah joined FCDE in 2018 as the Rukungiri Community Program Volunteer and has used this opportunity to super-charge her skillset and further her career goals.
Her passion of working with people to address socio-economic challenges at the individual and community levels has influenced her planning, decision-making, and sense of self. “By helping others become independent, I feel needed in society and have a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Volunteering is a great opportunity to improve self, others, and the whole society.” If you are looking to make an impact in your community, find a volunteer opportunity to empower yourself and others!
