War Child would not be War Child without volunteers. Volunteers lend a hand, add knowledge to our organisation, and inspire our staff. Due to the significant contribution of volunteers, we are able to limit our operational costs.

Volunteers are also considered staff members: you will be professionally guided in your assignment, and will be in close contact with the field and events in the Netherlands. As a volunteer in head office, you gain useful work experience, can enjoy a free lunch in our lively canteen and are entitled to reimbursement for your travel expenses. Due to the large number of volunteer applications, we follow a strict selection process and are unfortunately not able to offer a position to every applicant.

Volunteers in the field
War Child works with national volunteers in our project countries. They walk the walk and talk the talk. They know the habits, norms and values. Having national volunteers creates project ownership and sustainability.
