GETTING INVOLVED

Also see our Events page for other ways to get involved with us. 

VOLUNTEERING
Whatever your skills, we can put you to work, helping to improve the lives of people in the world’s poorest communities.....using what you have to make this world a better place, with a special emphasis on the health and total well-being of orphans and other vulnerable children.
Recent volunteers have worked in communications, health promotion, construction, research and fundraising. Watch this video of Kevin, one of our recent volunteers talking about his 3-month secondment with us or read this inspiring GSK PULSE case story from Dave, another volunteer who spent 6 months working on our flagship programme in South Africa.

INTERNSHIPS
Project HOPE UK runs an internship programme for students and academic institutions that has delivered significant benefits to vulnerable children throughout the developing world as well as helping the participating student to achieve their academic and personal objectives.
Spaces are strictly limited for placements in our signature programme near Johannesburg, South Africa (The Thoughtful Path: Munsieville), as well as occasional opportunities in our UK offices near Heathrow, London, UK, in support of our work with children in South Africa.
Funding
Internships with Project HOPE UK are self-funded, so the student will need to have sufficient funds to cover their living and travel costs, or find external sponsors. We can assist in preparing detailed budgets and obtaining preferential rates.Mentors, Supervisors and Preceptors
Project HOPE UK will allocate a mentor, assignment supervisor or preceptor to support the student throughout their assignment.
Language
It is essential that participating students speak fluent English.
Application Process
Students are encouraged to apply at the earliest opportunity as the selection process can take several weeks or months. On receipt of a completed application form an assessment will be undertaken to identify a potential match between the specific experience and needs of the applicant, with the opportunities and needs in our projects and/or UK office. Students who meet the requirements will then be interviewed.
