Bakasso’s Volunteer

‘’I have known the founder for many years, as we work for the same broadcasting company. I have followed her with great admiration and have contributed before. Then, I actually realized that I want and can do much more by thinking along and actually doing it. To think about how we can reach as many people as possible, that's great work. The phasing out of the hospital is already a big step in the right direction. But it's even better when all ideas come about next to the pregnancy checkups and maternity facilities. So also a school, more employment, support for small businesses, and so on. There is still a lot to do and I'm going to commit myself to that.’’

Why did you choose to volunteer for Bakasso with the I DO Project, Ryan?

Being part of I DO has given me valuable skills, important friendships, the chance to grow as a person and expand my knowledge on NGOs, but most importantly it has also shown me how a little effort can make a huge impact on other people’s lives.

I initially joined I DO to develop myself and my skills to broaden my career. After meeting with José, the founder of Bakasso, for the first time, I was impressed by her passion and dedication to the project. My team and I created a strategy to help Bakasso grow and finish the hospital’s development.

Throughout this process, it dawned on me that I was not doing this for my own personal growth, but rather for the people of Guinea who are less fortunate than me. It became clear to me that our efforts helped contribute to a bigger cause. The satisfaction and self-fulfillment I got from helping others have made me realize why I joined I DO.
