We take inspiration from the immense potential we have together for positive change.
The energy, dedication and skills of our volunteers has contributed to a future for our sisters in Nepal free from violence, exploitation and fear, a future of independence, dignity and opportunity.
But we recognise that volunteering is an exchange that can impact volunteers and host communities in both positive and negative ways. Regular short-term placements with unskilled volunteers cannot provide the stable, consistent environment or the healthy attachments young people need to thrive. While the the skills of volunteers are valued, the necessity for a translator puts pressure on the very few people who speak English in our partner organisations and who all have full workdays.
Volunteering is best when it is mutually beneficial, driven by the host community, targeted and sustainable.
If you are interested in volunteering with with us we ask you to consider these questions first.
Are you a school interested in our Youth To Youth Program? Please get in touch with us to see how we can work together.
Do you have a particular skill that you are good at sharing with others? Our education and training programs, run on a needs-basis and developed in collaboration with our partners in Nepal, are always happy to hear from new trainers.
If you can contribute your skills to our partners, are you able to commit the time needed to make a lasting contribution?
Can you cover your own costs? Our volunteers are self-funded or raise the funds for their visit.
Are you a social butterfly, an organiser, event planner or stellar fundraiser? We’d love to hear from you! There are many opportunities to contribute to our work in Australia.
Do you own a shop, cafe or restaurant? We have donation boxes that are looking for a good home!
All our volunteers are required to complete a Working With Children’s Check and work in line with our Volunteer Code of Behaviour and Child Protection Policy.
