Previous volunteers


Rutsu Shikano

Legal volunteer, Canada, 2016

"After 4 years of working in private practice as an estate planning and corporate lawyer, I was eager to explore my passion again and decided to spend my holiday time volunteering abroad with Inherit Your Rights in Arusha.  I never imagined that I could accomplish and be involved in so much in just a few short weeks.  The team was incredibly supportive and helpful and the programs they have in place are well run but still offer freedom and flexibility."


Inge Bij de Vaate

Research volunteer, Netherlands, 2015

Inge worked at the Supreme Court of the Netherlands assisting Justices in cases  varying from tort law, government liability and family law. Inge volunteered with us as a legal researcher.
