Kasonde Mulenga


What’s your role?

Project Officer: I am responsible for recruiting volunteers, providing support before and when in country. I coordinate  projects at district and facility level.

What made you decide to work for On Call Africa?

I have always worked in community development projects for more than 8 years but never in rural health care. This was a motivating factor because universal access to quality healthcare is still miles away, so I want to be a part of this journey to achieving the sustainable development goals.

What were you doing before you joined On Call Africa?

I was working as a coordinator with another organisation, designing, coordinating, and implementing sessions in schools and communities on Reproductive Health, education and sports in Tanzania and Zambia. Prior to that, I was a team leader for a British charity managing groups of young people between the ages of 18-25 from UK and Zambia for 3 moths per cycle delivering SRH in Choma and Nyimba Zambia.

Why should someone give up their time to volunteer for On Call Africa?

This is a lifetime investment both personal professional. The impact one has in the community is worth the time. Your partnership and support ensure that people who otherwise might not have had access to quality health care especially in rural settings get a chance to have access too.

What’s your biggest challenge for the year ahead?

To ensure I achieve my objectives.

Tell me something about you that no one else knows…

I once did voice overs for a first aid app still live on google play and apple store

Have you got any tips on Zambia for future volunteers?

Be ready to be amazed by lovely people and beautiful scenery.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Producing music, farming chillis, and playing the acoustic guitar

Why should we support On Call Africa?

By supporting OCA, you are supporting universal health, supporting universal health, you support human rights.
