Be a Volunteer

“Alone we can do so little, together we do so much” – Helen Keller

Volunteers play a vital role at WARIF, providing emotional and practical support to young women affected by sexual violence, supporting our office teams with project work or administration, and raising much-needed funds. Their support helps people feel stronger, understood and able to move forward with their lives.

We always need new volunteers to join our local teams so please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!

Ways to Volunteer

Work with young girls and women affected by sexual violence and rape

We work hard to help women affected and directly impacted by sexual violence and rape to heal, recover and reintegrate back into their communities as productive members once again.. As a WARIF volunteer, you’ll be trained to offer practical and emotional support to people in the local area. We’re looking for reliable volunteers with great people skills, who can listen effectively and direct those in need of support to the information and services available.

Raise funds and awareness

We are a registered charity, and our services rely entirely on the generosity of the public. We’re always looking for people to raise our profile in their local community and help bring in vital donations to allow us to continue our work.

If you’re a keen networker, an eloquent speaker or love to organise fundraising events, we’d love to hear from you.

Provide office support

We have a busy office in Yaba, Lagos and we are often in need of administrative support to help them run smoothly. If you’re looking to donate your skills and experience in this way, find out how to apply for one of our volunteer roles.

Share your professional skills

Whether you’re a graphic designer, a project manager or an HR professional, we may have a project that needs your expert skills. If you’re interested in giving some of your time to support our work, please send your CV to and we’ll be in touch.


WARIF values the quality of services provided to all of our clients hence we invest in trainings for all our volunteers and staffs. Leveraging on our strong collaborative links with other organizations, such as the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) and the Washington DC Rape Crisis Centre, we invite experienced personalities and experts to train our volunteers and staff to ensure quality service delivery.
