Episode 5: Funto & International Citizen Service in Nigeria

In Episode 5 of Volunteer Stories I talk to Funto who has volunteered on two International Citizen Service (ICS) projects in Nigeria. I met Funto on the first ICS project he volunteered on in Kwali, Nigeria. Funto then went on to become a Team Leader and led a team in Ifelodun, Nigeria.

During the interview Funto discusses what it’s like volunteering on Education-themed community development projects, his experience being a Team Leader, his favourite memories, his toughest challenges and the skills he gained through ICS.


Episode 5 features music by musicians who have been ICS volunteers including Impact Kwali, Kasovicious, With Sun, and Team Kang.
