Volunteering in Geneva

Hello All,

My wife will be in Geneva for a short assignment work with WHO. So i will be accompanying her but during her office hours, i am just wonder if there is anyway i can do volunteering work in Geneva ?

Well I am not particular in anything, my skills is in IT, I can do documentation, instructions, procedures. For example, I can do a simple ITIL training if required.

I also have volunteer before for NGO like Stop Hunger Now like packing foods. Is there anything similar like this ?

Unfortunately I dont speak french, but i am very much interested in learning it as well.

I will be around only for two weeks. I don't think I will need much training as i am quite a fast leaner and able to work as soon i am boarded.

Thank you.

regards
Scott

Re: Volunteering in Geneva

If you're only going to be here for 2 weeks, then I doubt it. Even voluntary work requires you to have a Swiss residence permit and that's something you won't have. Your time would be better spent enjoying seeing more of Switzerland. You're here as a tourist basically, so make the most of it, travel around, explore, etc.
