Volunteers

Org4Peace International Helpers welcomes your interest in helping us assist disadvantaged children and communities in SE Asia. If you would like to donate your time and skills and become an Org4Peace International Helper, please review the following guidelines.

Due to the educational needs of the children in our school and the sensitive nature of working with displaced or orphaned children, we limit the number of volunteers we send, and therefore will give preference to interested volunteers who have professional working experience.

Abroad, at home, and online, there are many ways you can assist us.

Volunteering Abroad

We accept a limited number of volunteers who are selected to go abroad. We make our selections based on the following criteria:

• Preference is given to volunteers with professional skills and experience.
• To ensure that volunteers can make a long-lasting meaningful contribution to org4peace projects and to the lives of disadvantaged children, volunteers must serve for a minimum of three months, except in specific, pre-approved circumstances.
• Volunteers are interviewed, and placed by Org4Peace International Directors in Canada and in SE Asia.
• Volunteers are supervised on-site by our local Org4Peace Chairman in Nepal, but will be asked to report to all parties in Canada and SE Asia, for the duration of their placement.
• Volunteers are expected to submit a weekly emailed report to the Org4Peace International Directors in Canada and SE Asia, reflecting their activities and experiences as well as providing feedback.
• Volunteers are bound by confidentiality requirements and must follow all rules and expectations defined by Org4Peace.
• No photos or videos taken by the volunteers may be published or used for commercial purposes or financial gain. All identifying characteristics of people and places, including names and locations, must be changed or omitted in order to protect the identity and privacy of the children, families and communities we work with.
