Akhuwat is immensely supported by a network of volunteers who contribute their services from time to time. We believe that an ideal social enterprise employs a devoted blend of volunteerism and necessary compensation, and we preach the same principle to our employees. We encourage them to contribute to this brotherhood beyond what is dictated by their formal contract. By fostering a spirit of volunteerism, Akhuwat strives to mobilize all members of society to become an active member in poverty alleviation.
Akhuwat is launching a Volunteer Program to encourage young changemakers to engage in community-driven programs.
