Volunteering Opportunities

Sukarya offers a wide range of one-time, short term, long term and online volunteering opportunities. The commitment in terms of time will vary based on your choice of activity. Once you decide on the activity of your choice you can opt for any one of the following volunteering programs available.

One time volunteering is essentially an event-based opportunity that lasts for a day. It means giving anywhere between 2 hours to 8 hours of one’s time most often on weekends or on public holidays. It could be a medical camp in a village, a fund raising event, or manning a stall for a day in your office to promote non-profit merchandise.
Short term volunteering is of one week to 3 months duration. It is mostly project based association involving short term engagement in specific areas of work based on project need and individual volunteer’s expertise and interest. This could be relating to fund raising, designing a website, developing software for maintaining records of patients in health camps, helping in project documentation, or short research based study.
Long term volunteering is a 3 month plus time commitment for people willing to volunteer on a regular basis. This involves relatively long term engagement for example, supporting self help group women, working on a heath-based community outreach programme or counselling and mentoring children of slums.
Online volunteering offers you the chance to volunteer from home or from your workplace. You could help in managing a website, drafting proposals, writing content for our brochure, reports or designing communication material.
