After watching this short film (or before) you can take the VOLUNTEERING PLEDGE that:
Children belong in families, not orphanages. I pledge to not volunteer in orphanages and #changevolunteering for the better.
Or, if you’re still thinking of volunteering, you can view this VOLUNTEER CHECKLIST online to make sure your time overseas is spent making a genuine difference. Unfortunately, some volunteer-sending companies may be more concerned with creating a ‘life-changing’ experience for the volunteer, with less focus on the purpose and the needs of local communities.
We need your help.
There are many ways to help us get this message out. One of the best ways we find is to share stories. Real stories. You might recognise these two remarkable women. Namrata and Purnima bravely share their experiences with humility and hope for change.
We invite you to share their stories.
Be a storyteller and help change the world for children.
