The Noela Lyonga Foundation is a non-profit organisation launched in August 2016. Based in Cameroon, the organisation encourages a culture of volunteerism and community development. It aims to innovate new concepts on volunteerism and wants to become Africa’s foremost volunteerism centre. With this new platform, the Foundation hopes to expand their offline opportunities to an online audience.
Tagged “nlvolunteers”, the platform will be powered by Njorku’s technology. It will be available on mobile and web and we are expecting a November launch date. Nlvolunteers will cater to individuals interested in volunteering as well as companies looking for volunteers. Individual and corporate users will be able to create profiles and apply for or post volunteering opportunities.
Mambe Churchill Nanje, explained his organisation’s motivation for entering into the partnership saying, “Such partnerships enable Njorku get more data on jobs and open positions and this helps us serve our users better.”
Njorku is an African job search engine localised in 9 African countries. The portal allows job seekers access jobs from company websites and job boards across Africa. This is not the first time Njorku is partnering with other organisations to launch recruitment platforms. So far they’ve worked with Akwajobs in Cameroon and Mbotejobs in Congo.
