Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently offering the following opportunities to join our dynamic volunteer team:

All volunteer positions are ideally filled by at least two team members who work together to ensure accountability and to help each other at times where one might be absent or busy with other life and work activities. As a volunteer you are more than welcome to choose any role, or parts thereof, as you wish! We have listed some key volunteer roles that we need to fill on our international volunteer team.
We are also inviting volunteers who want to specifically focus on awareness building/fundraising in one particular country. One such team is forming in Australia/New Zealand right now, another one in Japan.
These country teams could use similar kinds of specialized volunteers as below, who then work with our international team.
If you want to suggest additional support, or if none of these tasks strike your fancy, let us know and we’ll be happy to shape a position for you.
