martin“Everybody can be great. Because everybody can serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by Love.”

Martin Luther King Jnr.


The Child Rights Information and Documentation Centre (CRIDOC) values the concept of volunteerism in all its programme implementation and it is upon this concept that the organisation was founded just a few years ago. In fact, one of its founders was working as a volunteer/intern in India at the time when CRIDOC was being mooted/conceptualised as a project.

CRIDOC, therefore, reviewed its volunteer programme approaches with a view of maximising the potential and provide unlimited opportunities to various categories of people within Malawi and beyond to contribute positively towards the activities that the organisation and its local partners are implementing in the country.

As a result of this process, our volunteer programmes are now grouped into three (3) main categories as follows:
     (i) Local Volunteer Programme»
     (ii) Omprakash International Volunteer Programme»
     (iii) On-line Volunteer Programme»

In all these volunteer programmes, the rationale is to encourage individuals to share and utilise their knowledge and skills by voluntarily doing something positive to the communities, particularly those that will have a positive impact on the under-privileged children directly or indirectly.

At the same time, CRIDOC seeks to offer the platform on which the volunteers/interns themselves can enhance their learning.
Our volunteer concept is based on the following general understanding and definitions of the term "volunteerism":
bullet Performing an act of kindness, freely giving of your talent, time, and effort for a simple fulfillment of community expectations
bullet The willingness of private citizens to serve voluntarily in a great variety of programmes causes.
bullet Performing activities of one’s own free will that provide services to the community without monetary reward
bullet It is an expression of active participation in the life of a community
bullet In all the three categories highlighted above, the following are some of the benefits that volunteers and/or interns may realise by working for either CRIDOC or any of our key local partner institutions in Malawi.
bullet The importance of achievements
bullet Recognition
bullet Personal growth
bullet Giving something back to the society one belongs to
bullet Bringing about social change
bullet Friendships, support, bonding and a sense of belonging
