Opportunities for you to be involved are available in China, our Sydney office or online.
As our family of children grows in number, and our supporter numbers also grow, there are more activities needing to be done so we can better care for both groups. Our Sydney team seeks to continually improve the way we communicate our message to people so we can provide a means for sponsors to build relationship with their sponsor children or the project they are sponsoring.
There are some roles where you as a volunteer might be able to really help us. Why not join in and get involved? These are mainly in Sydney but some can be performed electronically from other locations. There are various administration activities that we would really appreciate some help with.
If you would like to consider being a part of our volunteer team please click the links to see what’s available. If you don’t see something that directly “hit’s a chord” then please email us and discuss what’s on your heart to help serve the children.
