Volunteer opportunities

Heart for Kids Volunteer

Our volunteers play a valuable role in our ongoing work serving China’s orphans and children in poverty. People with a passionate desire to help orphans are instrumental in helping us make a difference. You can serve outside China and still have impact.

You can volunteer by joining an international team which we run at different times in the year. More information about teams is available here. 

A volunteer is defined as “someone providing a service through a formal organisation, by choice, without financial remuneration and for the benefit of the community”. We value our volunteers and what they bring to the Heart For Kids team through their skills, gifts and talents.

You may be interested and have skills in social media, Google Adwords, translating between English / Mandarine / Hindi and if so please message us.

Volunteering opportunities have changed during COVID

During COVID our opportunities for volunteers has decreased. Sadly teams to China have not been able to operate and events were also not held. But as things begin to change we welcome people who could help us share the world of what Heart for Kids is doing to help these children. 

Teams to India have re-commenced and are running around March-April and again around October-November.

To talk about being a volunteer, helping us serve the Heart for Kids family, please use our contact form.

Safe water bores are currently being installed in 1 village per month.

That keeps between 1300 and 2000 children and family members safe.

We would love to do more.
