What do you think of when you hear of the Volunteering for Children? Some people might think of volunteers running with stretchers or distributing food. This is only a small window into our work. Our volunteers are also engaged in child programmes, telephone help-lines, disaster management, support for refugees and internally displaced people, health campaigns, advocacy and a myriad of other services with the aim of improving the lives of the vulnerable children in communities.
Volunteer work is different from paid work. Volunteering has its own unique qualities:
- Volunteers have a strong personal motivation
This makes a big difference to our beneficiaries
- Volunteers work part-time
Most people only volunteer a few hours each week. Therefore, volunteering can be combined with any occupation and can continue for many years.
- Volunteers are local
They are part of the community. Volunteers know the needs and resources in the community, because they are already there.
