Become a volunteer


Volunteers are greatly appreciated in all areas of Hohidiai’s work.  Your time and expertise is a great encouragement to Hohidiai, as well as getting work done!

We are quite a community now, and need help with administration, IT support, sewing, hairdressers, painting and many other areas.  If you are able to assist in any of these areas, please contact Peter peter@hohidiai.org.
