Who we are
We are Nigeria’s premier volunteering database. We aim to connect people with a heart for service, with non-profit organizations that champion causes of positive change in the society; ultimately empowering the creed to be the difference we want to see.
A prevalent inhibiting factor in the field of voluntary service is the scarcity of comprehensive information on existing non-profit organizations, altruistic efforts and volunteer/partnership opportunities.
At Be The Difference, we provide and promote details on credible non-profit organizations and volunteering opportunities within these groups. We strive towards bridging the information gap by proffering up to date notifications on new volunteer opportunities and recent strides in humanitarian efforts.
- Responsible management team
- Awesome volunteers
- Credible NGOs/Non-profits
- Building awesome experiences
- Real opportunities
At our helm of affairs are highly skilled consultants delivering utmost professionalism and targeted solutions. We believe in empowering a difference which has the capacity to foster positive change in our immediate environment.
Over the years, what we ultimately have succeeded in doing is bridging the gap between volunteers and opportunities around them in Nigeria; this was only possible with the our seasoned management team.
We also have opportunities in our consultants working group program, for highly skilled individuals who wish to be part of our success story.
Volunteering is not easy. We know this first hand, its why we place high value on our volunteers and treat them accordingly.
We employ a slightly rigorous process in recruiting volunteers. This is so because we understand volunteering is a serious venture, and as such, we need serious minded individuals who posses the potential to make a difference.
