Volunteering is the best way to develop African heritage communities
The Akoben Volunteer Programme provides opportunities for everyone to get involved in the regeneration of the African community.
Our ancestors believed that service was a positive attitude to cultivate and considered very important in their development as a moral being. Even the Shekem (what Europeans called Pharaohs) considered their role as leader as one of service and that being able to serve was a blessing, not a chore.

We at Pattigift hold to the notion of service to the community. If we can be of service to the community particularly in its need to heal; then we’ll all be the better for it in the long run. We do not subscribe to the view that it’s everyone for themselves. Just because people may think like that does not make it correct.

We are establishing an army of volunteers within the community of people of African ancestry. An army of ‘healer warriors’ charged with engaging the community in helping to heal itself.

We are interested in recruiting from all sectors of the community, however we are particularly interested in recruiting young males who are ex-cons and want to stay that way. We are interested in young brothers and sisters who are roaming the streets with little or no prospects and even less self-knowledge. We are also actively trying to engage people who are caught between job seeker and long term sick.

If you have what it takes to become an Akoben volunteer then contact us today. We will match you up with the best volunteering opportunity for your personal development and growth!
