Volunteer with us

From fundraisers, trustees, accountants, web builders and more, volunteers give their time and expertise in all kinds of ways to help us.

Our volunteers give their time, passion and energy to help vulnerable children in Zambia change their future for good. The range of skills, experience and expertise volunteers can bring a small charity like ZOA is invaluable, making what we do have an even greater impact. And it doesn’t matter where you’re based as the roles we offer are usually home based.

Check out volunteer roles available below or for more information please contact Katy on 01223 901 006 or email her on katy@zoa.org.uk

In line with our ambition of encouraging sustainable communities, self-sufficiency and building skills locally, we employ Zambian staff and work with Zambian  volunteers (usually our former students) rather than sending volunteers from the UK to Zambia.

But, if you’d like to get involved in the work of a small charity that makes a big difference, wherever you’re based in the world, we have plenty of opportunities to get involved remotely in our fundraising, communications and support work.

A volunteer since 2017

Hannah Fisher

“I have volunteered for ZOA since November 2017. I had family in Zambia and was keen to be involved with a charity working with grassroots organisations helping children and young people there. I love volunteering for ZOA. They do incredible work to support people in Zambia in lots of different ways. I’ve been involved in various projects, from prospect research to report writing to social media.”

Helping build our new website

Jack Thompson,

“I remember my painful childhood years when everyone saw me as a burden. I didn’t have friends to play with but my grandmother showed me love.

Life was a real challenge for us and I believe that’s why my brothers stopped school and my sisters got married early. I was serious about school because I saw it as my only hope out of misery.

When I completed school I applied for a three year Primary Teacher Diploma Course and was put on ZOA support. I want to become a teacher and help my family and my fellow people with disabilities.”

Help change a child's future

Your help can support children through primary andsecondary school, provide nutritious school meals so pupilsaren’t learning on an empty stomach and support those that canthrough tertiary vocational training. We provide a holisticapproach so also provide mental health support and other inputswhere needed.
