The benefits for Sandblast
We operate on a shoestring budget, so volunteers are essential to keeping our important work going. Volunteers bring new ideas and personal experience which can positively affect the work we’re doing at Sandblast.
Alongside this, volunteers can question and identify gaps which we may have missed, and offer tips and suggestions to help us improve our programming. It is also great to work with volunteers to help them achieve in education, professional life, or to just have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
Volunteers help us:Increase our capacity to deliver Desert Voicebox classes in the refugee campsProvide training to local Saharawi teachersLead creative workshops to engage and stimulate the studentsSpread the word about the Saharawi cause and build international friendship and solidarity
"I would love for this programme to be studied in all of the camps. I think learning English, music and art is something that can benefit generations of Saharawis."
- Anastasia Oleinik, art and music teacher volunteer
