What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

Given the security restrictions, the only volunteer opportunity is with a group that teaches English to the embassy local staff (local guards, custodial staff, etc.). Otherwise, embassy staff are restricted to a one-square mile area surrounding the embassy, and prohibited from visiting any local venue, for any purpose. Volunteering in this circumstances is virtually impossible. - Apr 11, 2017
There used to be volunteer opportunities with local schools, but I am not sure that they are available anymore, under the current movement restrictions. - Jun 17, 2016
