Afghanistan marked our first efforts in using e-volunteerism, creating even more opportunities for Singapore volunteers to take part in the development of overseas communities.

Using online platforms such as email and Skype, volunteers like Chin Hooi Yen are able to play a part – from Singapore – in this important period for Afghanistan, when the country urgently needs leaders capable of spearheading post-conflict reconstruction efforts.

Sharing managerial skills she acquires in her work, Hooi Yen has been helping Afghan civil servants – people she now calls friends – to rebuild their home for themselves and future generations.

There are no vacant projects in Afghanistan, but you can view vacancies in other countries.  If you have any enquiries, you can email us at
