Community Volunteer, Mary's Meals Would you like the opportunity to support Mary’s Meals’ work to feed hungry children in some of the world’s poorest countries and help give them a brighter future? We’re looking for volunteers to join our global movement, to help raise awareness about Mary’s Meals and fundraise for our work.Mary's Meals provides daily school meals to over 2 million children in 19 countries.Our idea is a simple one that works. We provide one daily meal in a place of education in order to attract chronically hungry children into a classroom, where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty.Our vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.Our mission is to enable people to offer their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer, and through this involvement, provide the most effective help to those suffering the effects of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest communities.As a Community Volunteer you will pro-actively raise awareness of the work of Mary’s Meals in your local area. You will help to grow our movement by motivating and inspiring others to support our work to help us feed some of the world’s poorest children. We have a range of activities that can be done from the comfort of your home or in your local community.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. Other key activities may include: - Sharing our story (in person) with local community organisations, schools, churches, and faith groups. - Organising fundraising events in your local area – such as coffee mornings, quizzes, and bucket collections. - Promoting Mary’s Meals’ fundraising campaigns in your community. - Distributing and displaying promotional materials and placing collection tins. - Helping to generate support from businesses in your local area. Our flexible volunteer roles allow you to raise awareness in your own community in whatever way you feel comfortable. All of our volunteer activities are tailored to suit your different skills and time constraints. If you have a little time to spare, you enjoy meeting like-minded people, want to learn new skills and you’d like to help our amazing cause, then our Community Volunteer role is perfect for you!
