Community Volunteer

  • VO86337


Description

We’re looking for volunteers to join our global movement, to help raise awareness about Mary’s Meals and fundraise for our work.

As a Community Volunteer you can contribute as an individual or become part of one of our local groups of passionate volunteers, helping to grow our movement by motivating and inspiring people in your local community to support our work.
If you have a little time to spare, you enjoy meeting like-minded people, want to learn new skills and you’d like to help our amazing cause, then our Community Volunteer role is perfect for you!
Volunteering is fulfilling and fun. By gifting your precious free time to Mary’s Meals, you can learn useful new skills, meet new people, and make a valuable contribution to our important work to reach more hungry children with life-changing meals in schools.
We really need your help so we can keep our promise to the more than 1.8million children who rely on a nutritious daily meal at school from Mary’s Meals, especially as Covid-19 has hit many developing countries so hard.

We are looking for people who are passionate about ending child hunger and ensuring that every child receives a daily meal in a place of education.
We have a range of activities that can be done from the comfort of your home, while Covid-19 restrictions are in place. They include: hosting virtual talks, spreading the word about our work on social media or holding screenings of our inspiring videos with family and friends.
If you don’t mind public speaking, we can also train you to visit schools, Rotary Clubs and other local organisations to give talks virtually and generate support for our cause.

Organisation aims and objectives

Mary’s Meals provides life-changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. We are a no-frills charity with a simple idea that works: by providing one good meal in a place of learning, children are drawn into the classroom where they can receive an education that could one day free them from poverty. Mary’s Meals is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty. We consist of, respect and reach out to people of all faiths and of none. Our vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education. Working together, we believe that can be achieved in this world of plenty.
