Your skills, passion and time are valuable to us. We rely on volunteers to fundraise, help out with events and campaigns, and bring their expertise to our operations.


Volunteering is a fantastic way to take action on poverty. Our volunteers have helped us stuff envelopes, fixed our IT systems, provided digital marketing support, and contributed to our international projects.
