Slum Doctor Programme


November 20, 2008

Current Volunteer Needs:

1. During the month of December we will open a jewelry store at the old Newstand Space (111 E. Magnolia). The event will be called Silver 4 Life and a portion of the proceeds will go to supporting SDP’s projects in Africa. We will be selling artisan silver jewelry and NEED volunteers to help work at the store, both selling merchandise and telling customers about SDP. The store will be open Tuesday – Saturday from 12-6. If would like to volunteer on any of these days or want more information, email our volunteer coordinator, Paige Lamb at

2. We also need people to set-up for the sale at the Newstand space on the Saturday the 29th, beginning at 10am.  We will be moving tables and cleaning the building. Email Paige if you’re interested in helping out! (

Volunteer Information

SDP Volunteers,

I have a few volunteer opportunities that I would like to highlight.

October 25th is Make A Difference Day. The event is all about making changes in our community. This year Slum Doctor Programme will be working at our own building (Anything Grows) in order to better serve the many local non-profit organizations located here. We will be cleaning up, painting and doing whatever necessary to transform this community space.  We need 20 volunteers from 9am-12ish. All you need to bring is some comfortable and a willingness to do some work for a good cause. If you’d like to be involved, email me: or call our office at: (360) 224-1644.

We are looking for volunteer educators to teach our global HIV/AIDS Curriculum in middle and high school classrooms.  The presentation focuses on the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa and the issues associated with the disease, including gender inequality, poverty and orphans.  If you are interested in participating or have questions, please contact me ( We will be having our first meeting next Thursday (16th) and would love to see you there!

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to table in the community, volunteer at events and do office work. If you are interested in those tasks or have an idea of your own, let me know.

Have you posted these at the Whatcom Volunteer Center? Also the Herald often lists volunteer opportunities. How can we get our wishlist out there?

Thank you so much for your interest in Slum Doctor Programme and for wanting to volunteer! We are based out of Bellingham, WA and our only volunteer opportunities are in our community. However, if you are interested in educating youth in your town about the AIDS pandemic, feel free to download the curriculum (on the global AIDS curriculum page) and spread the word! Thanks again. If you have questions, please email me at
thank you!
