African Business Network (NGO)
Ikando was founded by volunteers from the UK and Holland who had become exasperated at the difficulty and expense of volunteering despite the range of opportunities available. Our objective is to help more people gain the life changing, life affirming experiences that volunteering can give. We are committed to enabling skill transfer, enabling organisations in the developing world to access different skill sets and to helping volunteers realize the value they can add using the skills they hold.
