St Josephs Home welcomes  people who are interested in getting involved in the issues we care about.
Volunteering is simple. It’s about donating your time and in return you meet new people, learn skills and gain real life work experience. You will also have fun doing so.
At St.Joseph’s Home we have many opportunities for volunteers. Your involvement can range from one-on-one care of a bedridden child, play activities with the children, story telling or helping out as a nursing ward assistant.

We also need volunteers in our Resource Development Office to assist us with marketing, journalism, research, fundraising and other administrative duties. St. Joseph’s hosts many young volunteers from Europe and North American volunteers during their school breaks and gap years. We accommodate students from local and international universities for internships.
Whether you are taking a sabbatical from teaching, or want to simply give back, we welcome all volunteers who have a heart to help children in need.
