About the volunteering opportunity

GoBanyo is looking for volunteer drivers for the shower bus to support the project.

With the shower bus we go to different places in the city several times a week and offer homeless people the possibility to shower for free. On site, they can also get a T-shirt, underwear and socks, a hot drink and above all acceptance & conversations at eye level.

Dignified washing in privacy in a converted public bus with 3 fully equipped bathrooms (one of which is wheelchair accessible). Through regular hygiene the mental as well as the physical health should be improved and the related health care should become a cornerstone for the homeless guests to regain self-confidence.

Because "washing is dignity".

And in times of Corona above all "health".

Your Tasks

On the one hand, it is a matter of transferring the bus from the parking space to the daytime location and back again. A class C truck driving licence is required for this.

In addition, technical interest and the desire to accompany the shower operation on the technical side on the days of use is desirable. Connection to electricity, filling of tanks and water supply and disposal on site.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, basic German skills are required.

A class C driving licence is required (over 12t) and technical interest. Also no inhibitions in contact with the guests.
