Be a Member


DevXchange is run by its members. The benefits are like our international development philosophy – it’s an exchange – what you put in is what you will get back. As a member you will receive personal notices of opportunities we think you might be interested in, but keep checking our website for additional opportunities and feel free to pass them on to your friends. 

Be a Project Lead Member


DevXchange does not hire staff to manage projects. This keeps our overhead to a minimum and allows our volunteers to ‘own’ the projects they feel passionate about. Most projects involve a number of members or volunteers and all projects are led by a Project Lead Member. The Project Lead Member is usually our main liaison with the implementing partner and together with other members and friends undertakes fundraising for project commitments.
