Women Skills Bureau Riyadh launches a volunteer program for expat ladies
VolunteerWSB is a project, from Women Skills Bureau Riyadh that connects skilled professional women from different nationalities and backgrounds with volunteer opportunities in the Riyadh community. VolunteerWSB aims to contribute to those local organizations and communities in need of professional support.
MATCHING VOLUNTEER INTERESTS TO NONPROFIT NEEDS
VolunteerWSB believes that every expat living in Riyadh has a lot to offer to the local community and should be able to contribute to the community with their professional skills. At VolunteerWSB we help connect good causes with the expat community.
Volunteering can take many different forms, from spending time with kids with disabilities, to helping out at cats shelters. From teaching art to kids with Down syndrome to teaching how to cook healthy food…Every single skill is more than welcome.
PUTTING THEM TOGETHER…
In order to create the best connections between volunteers and nonprofits, we have an online platform with specific tools that help to match the non-profits needs with the volunteer’s skills.
We encourage all expat women to visit our web page and join us and keep an eye on all the news regarding the nonprofit organizations that matches with their needs.
