Become a volunteer

"Your commitment is our strenght"

At OVO, we select, mentor, finance and monitor African businesses and organizations to help achieve their goals. OVO would not be OVO without our volunteers. As a growing organization, we are always looking for inspired employees who want to share their knowledge and experience.


Do you enjoy working in a support role, or do you feel better with more responsibility, do you see yourself in an organizational role, or would you rather coach companies, there are several ways you can contribute. Do you only have 1 day a week, or would you like to contribute daily, there is plenty of work, all efforts are appreciated. Together we can see in which team you can feel at home and where you can best use your experience. This can be in the operational team, team sales, team communications, team events or team investments. In each team we are looking for different profiles.

  • Do you like going on the road with us, do you like doing research, or would you rather cooperate in preparing files for sponsors, we would love to include you in our team!
  • Experience is not a requirement, enthusiasm is.
