Aim of ROTA's Volunteer Program

The Volunteer Program of Reach Out To Asia strives to create a movement of volunteers and responsible global citizens within Qatar, that actively carry out initiatives to improve the general well being of their local communities and make a positive impact on the lives of the less fortunate across Asia.

ROTA has managed to empower many people over the last two years to make a positive difference in thousands of lives and to strengthen even its foundations in the Qatari society. Volunteers give freely of their time and expertise in order to make a difference. Being a ROTA volunteer offers many benefits in appreciation of the gift of your time and expertise.

Volunteering can help:

  • Make a difference in someone's life
  • Learn and develop skills
  • Gain experience
  • Build self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Help you meet new people
  • Feel needed and valued
