Volunteer at university

learning new skills at a metal workshop in bakoteh, the gambiaAre you a student or a group of students who want to make a difference to the lives of orphaned and abandoned children? Then there are many ways in which you can help support our work all over the world.

Get Fundraising

Why not host your own fundraising event? Get as creative as you can and use your talents and skills to help raise money to support our work.  Give us a shout for any advice or inspiration you need and we’ll do our best to help you make your event a success.  Organising an event helps you develop those all important career skills too.

Get thinking, here are some ideas to get you started…

  • Put on a club night in aid of SOS Children's Villages
  • Have a donation dinner party with your housemates and friends
  • Sell cakes in your student union
  • Give a talk to your class about the work of SOS Children's Villages
  • Get your mates to all do a sponsored parachute jump or run a 10km race
