  1. Hello Madam, Sir,

    My name is Djuma Manirakiza, I am Burundian, I live in Rwanda. I have a culinary arts background and a certified yoga teacher. I am currently working with UNHCR Kigali Cantine as a cook.

    In fact, I would like to become a volunteer within your organization. Passionate about cooking, meditation and yoga, I have the necessary experience to carry out all the missions entrusted to me. Versatile, I can try my luck in any type of cuisine and even offer yoga and meditation classes.

    I can send you my CV and letter of recommendation.

    Best regards,

    Djuma Manirakiza.

  2. I was wondering about volunteering. I can paint
    I have basic joinery skills, I have a clean licence, and I have worked with animals and fish. I am a good garden labourer.
    I work but I find my job tedious. I drive cars and I am sitting down too much. I am fit and healthy and I would love to help you keep the centre maintained.
