Community Volunteer

  • VO86664


Description

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.
