What work does the employee do for charity

I am involved in planning & organization and collecting funds , selling Kenyan goods on special markets and to private people (those goods are made by our students in the tailoring school Kenya ). Every year we go on site with a team of volunteers . My tasks then is mainly repair and build ( I am quite handy ) , mostly sewing machine maintenance , electricity and water pipeline installations . Other volunteers give sewing lessons / English lessons and or assist in the hospital .Every year we offer our holiday's to do volunteering on site , which gives all of us a great / warm and satisfying feeling in return.
