Dembidolo hosts communities of both the Daughters of Charity and the Vincentian Fathers.
The Daughters administer a kindergarten, a women’s development programme, income generation projects, a hostel for girls and services for the elderly. There is also a central clinic with outreach to the villages in the region and various healthcare and health promotion programmes.
There is a Vincentian parish administered by the Vincentian Fathers, of which a primary school and a community centre are part.
Volunteers are needed with experience in teaching or youth work to facilitate a summer programme for the students of the Vincentian School for one month between July and August.
