What we offer you

Action10 is 100% volunteer driven. Each and everyone of us is deeply committed, because we are in a position where we are relied upon by our fellow volunteers, and, even more essentially: the individuals running our projects in Sub-Saharan African countries. In this sense we are a like a big family, whose every member is important, appreciated, and encouraged to bring forward new ideas and take initiatives.   
Action10 is committed to operating with a minimum of administrative cost. You will join an organisation that aims at making 95% of funds raised reach those they were intended for. For this reason, we do not have an office. You are free to work on your task, towards your individual progress markers, at a location of your own convenience. Meanwhile, this working situation requires that we also regularly meet in person, in Stockholm.
Due to our promise to our partners, we do not get refunds on travel costs to meetings, and therefore we hope that you are resident in the Stockholm area. This way, we can make the most of our hybrid situation, and your volunteer experience will be socially rewarding, for you
