Help to Help is growing faster than ever which means that we can support education for more students in East Africa.
We need your help in interviewing new candidates for our Scholarship Program - potential future changemakers of the world. Since the start in 2010, Help to Help has provided scholarships for almost 400 students in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. Now we are stepping up our game to change the world together with our students and partners.
During 2021 our goal is to accept 200 new students to our Scholarship Program. Selecting the right students based on their financial background, academic performance and most importantly, their ability and willingness to drive change in their society, is crucial for Help to Help in achieving our mission.
We invite you to join us and contribute with your time as an interview volunteer. You will get an insight to how we work and get to know our students, a fantastic group of changemakers and future leaders. No prior experience is needed - just your time and curiosity!

”Help to Help is changing the life for the students getting the scholarships and via the initiatives these students later take on they are improving their communities. I am so glad to be able to support with my time for this great organization and each time I do this I am reminded how lucky we are here in Sweden, and I keep reminding my own children of this.”
"To be an interview volunteer at Help to Help allows me to be in regular contact with the Africa I love and care for. It is very inspiring to talk to the young students with great goals and drive to change their own situation and the society around them. It gives me the privilege to follow the progress during their studies as well as the professional development as employees or entrepreneurs."

”It was amazing to hear the students from Tanzania talk about their lives and their ambitions for how they will use their education to build a better society. The fact that I could get information after the interviews about which candidates had succeeded to get the scholarship and how I can follow their journey, made me feel close to them despite the geographical distance. If you understand English and is not afraid of asking questions, take the chance and sign up as a volunteer, it was a lot of fun. ”
"My mother was so proud of me getting the scholarship"
