About this opportunity

Volunteering at Baptist World Aid

Volunteers are an important part of Baptist World Aid’s rich, 60-year history. It was a group of committed volunteers who first began this poverty ending work, and for our first 20 years, Baptist World Aid was run solely by generous volunteers. But volunteers are not only a part of our organisation’s history… they’ are also a vital and incredibly valued part of our operation today!

Baptist World Aid is currently blessed by around 35 regular volunteers, who give generously of their time and talents to help fulfil our shared mission to end poverty. They consistently help to minimise our administration costs so we can maximise the funds we invest overseas.

When you volunteer with Baptist World Aid, you’re volunteering for an international Christian development organisation working in 18 countries. You’ll be part of important work that empowers communities to lift themselves out of poverty and that, last year, directly benefited 332, 391 people.

Who is this opportunity for?

If you’re aged 16 years or over, then this volunteering opportunity is for you! Your proficient computer skills, strong written English skills and proof-reading skills will help you to perform well. You’ll volunteer 1-2 days per week at our North Ryde office or virtually from your own home. Hours and days are flexible (weekdays only).

Before volunteering you will need to complete a Police Check (paid for by Baptist World Aid) and a free Working With Children Check.

What would I be doing?

You’ll be working with a dynamic Regular Giving Team, helping to build the connection between sponsors and their sponsored children. You’ll assist with the development and production of annual updates that are sent out to child sponsors. These updates inform sponsors about the impact of the project over the past twelve months, in the life of their sponsored child as well as the child’s family and community. It’s a great opportunity to gain insight into our projects and see the change they can make as we work towards ending poverty!
