To volunteer to work with the Charity in overseas is a unique opportunity to see inside another culture, to work with children and to see an NGO (non-governmental organisation) in operation. If this appeals to the volunteers, we are delighted to give them the chance to work there.
We set great store by being accountable for all the money donated, so volunteers are valuable as the eyes and ears of the Charity, who can actually witness the work being done. We prefer people to be of college-leaving age or over (previous work experience can be valuable). Although younger people have volunteered, life is not easy there and a mature approach is needed.
Not only will you be helping some of the poorest children to have the chance of an education and opportunity in life, you will find the experience rewarding, enriching, and enjoyable. Volunteers will have tasks allocated that will involve visiting projects (with staff member) and meeting the children, write monitoring reports and very importantly involving with the children in the daily activities.
We also have a small number of short-term placements, to help teach English to the children in our supported projects; our Peterborough office will be pleased to give you further information.
Living and Working Conditions
There is clean simple guest accommodation available in both India and Thailand. Volunteers will be required to contribute towards accommodation overheads while working with the Charity.
Application and Interview
Volunteers are all requested to fill out an application form and will normally be expected to attend an interview. All Volunteers must agree to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screening check.
Once accepted for volunteer work with The Joe Homan Charity, you will receive full briefing on arrival at the project, and our local Manager will arrange your individual work programme. To work with the Charity is interesting and rewarding for those who are enthusiastic about it.
