"Volunteering gives you a wonderful sense of achievement. You feel you are doing your part for charity, and putting your skills and time to good use."

Volunteering abroad

Unfortunately we do not send volunteers from the UK to any of our overseas programmes.

In line with our aim of encouraging self-sufficiency and building skills locally, we employ national staff and involve volunteers wherever possible.

Vision for volunteering

We are one team and believe in volunteers and staff collaborating across the organisation and in every area of our work.

The enormous range of skills, experience and expertise volunteers bring makes us stronger as an organisation.

We are developing and learning from one another to shape our work. We encourage the enthusiasm and ambition of our volunteers so that, together, we can create lasting change for children.
