Volunteering Program At The AbdelKarim Mirghani Cultural Centre


The AbdelKarim Mirghani Cultural Centre (AKMCC) is offering volunteering opportunities in Khartoum and Omdurman, Sudan.


The programme is designed for students at the BA, MA, and PhD level of all disciplines, desiring to improve their Arabic skills while working in one of the many areas of interest of the AKMCC.  Free Arabic classes will be offered in exchange for volunteering activities.

Students should at least be 18 years old and the duration of the internship is either three or six months. A 6-month period is required for those who chose the Language Teaching programs.


The areas of interests of the AKMCC are:



-          English language (grammar, conversation, reading and writing in English). Any English skills volunteers are able to teach will be appreciated, as English is a much needed language.

-         English for Academic Purposes.

-         Other languages (French, Spanish, Italian), to be negotiated with the coordinator according to needs.



-          Web-site developers of all levels.

-         Computer experts (maintenance of computers, creation of networks, internet connection).

-         Teachers for courses in computer literacy (please note that the language of instruction will be English).



The AKMCC is equipped with an excellent library which is accessible for free to everybody. But it needs maintenance, cataloguing and updating, in short it needs a capable assistant-librarian.



The AKMCC also offers internships in the framework of the many programmes and activities it organizes in support of the civil society, such as:

-          Rural women’s awareness /development/income generating programme.

-          Art workshops for children.


The Centre is open to the input and suggestions of the volunteers, and will strive to find the appropriate volunteering opportunity for each.

All the volunteering programmes are part-time, and they will allow adequate time to follow Arabic classes. Arabic classes will be offered by qualified Arabic instructors from the Omdurman Islamic University.


The AKMCC cannot pay for the food and the accommodation of the volunteers, but it will  be committed to helping the volunteers to find adequate accommodation (but remember, it is Khartoum, do not expect to be at the Hilton). Equally importantly, the AKMCC will assist volunteers with the visa procedures by providing an invitation letter
