Could you volunteer to help change lives in Russia and Georgia? Whether you want quick actions you can take with no committment or a greater involvement, the answer is “yes”! Read on to find out how you can help spread the word, fundraise or translate.
How much time do you have to spare?
Follow us on social media and share
We would love to connect on social media. If you would have five minutes from time to time, then you could be a social media champion for vulnerable people in Russia and Georgia. If you direct message us, we will let you know when we have a big campaign that you might particularly like to share. You can join our group of keen supporters who share our most important posts just a few times a year. There’s no obligation, but taking part can really help us up our profile on social media and spread the word about the lives we are changing.

Help us with translation
From time to time we need help with translation from Russian or Georgian into English. Native-speaker standard English and excellent knowledge of Russian or Georgian required. Contact us if you would like to get involved.
Why not set yourself a challenge and get your friends to sponsor you, or host a virtual event like a quiz? We have lots of ideas to get you started, and we are always happy to discuss your ideas. Just get in touch.
