Volunteer

We often seek volunteer support across a number of disciplines.

Our volunteers are passionate global ambassadors for MMF.

Volunteers work at our project sites as well as in their local areas. From research assistants and teacher trainers to graphic designers and photojournalists, we regularly recruit volunteers for a variety of roles throughout our organization and across the world.

Volunteer positions are normally a minimum of 2 months, but shorter periods will be considered in exceptional cases. If you'd like to become a volunteer, send us your CV and cover letter, as well as what position you'd like to pursue.

Not able to volunteer? There are many other ways to get involved! Fundraise in your local area, become an MMF brand ambassador, or raise awareness by connecting your network to MMF.
