ABOUT HOKELA

Hokela Technologies Logo

Hokela means "connect" in South African Sesotho language, and that's what we do. Our mission is to connect passionate volunteers with causes that are meaningful to them. 

Hokela is a technology company that enables people to easily view and connect with charities in their area on an online platform. In our portal, charities can post their volunteer positions and people can view them based on their search criteria, such as by organization, location, sector, age groups, availability, and length of commitment.

Some of the sectors we cover include:

ADMINISTRATION & FUNDRAISING

HEALTHCARE & WELL-BEING

COMMUNITY & CARE

SPORTS & CULTURE

ENVIRONMENT & ANIMALS

TECHNOLOGY

 
 

OUR MISSION

Make volunteering accessible for everyone, no matter how busy they are, with the goal of transforming the volunteering industry.

OUR STORY

At Hokela, we believe people want to be part of something bigger than themselves. People want to help a cause that is meaningful to them and close to their hearts. 

However, given our busy work and life commitments, it is hard to quickly find volunteer opportunities that match our skills, interests, schedule, location, and level of commitment.

And that's what we want to change. We want to make it easy for people to find and connect with the causes that are important to them. A simplified process that unites volunteers with charities.
