You can really make a difference!
In order to maintain the help given to the widows and orphans in Afghanistan, Mahboba relies on volunteers. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with an inspirational woman and make a difference to the lives of the people she helps. Please read and complete our online application form at the bottom of this page where necessary and we can match your skills with a volunteer task and we will get in touch with you.
Help in the office
If you have good office skills in admin, marketing, fundraising, communications, graphic design or accounts, and can dedicate some time one day a week or a fortnight to Mahboba's Promise for at least six months, we would love to hear from you. The office is located in North Ryde.
Our volunteers say:
"Hi! My name is Emma-Jalien. I’m a Social Work student from the Netherlands. I really wanted to do my internship at Mahboba’s Promise in Sydney. Now I can say that it was the best decision, I absolutely didn’t regret coming to Australia to do my internship here. I’m now working as a volunteer projects officer. I like to go to the office every single time. The people who are working at the office are such nice people, they make me feel so welcome. They really care about the people they work for and work with, they helped me out whenever I needed them. At Mahboba’s Promise they give me the opportunity to grow and to improve myself."
"Hi, I am Azadeh and I have been with Mahboba's Promise since late 2014. I am happy to put my office administration & bookkeeping skills into a good use. But later I found that what I can contribute in supporting Afghan children & women as well as the great people I see here are what really matters. I'm sure whoever get to know them better, will fall in love with this organisation and its mission."
"Hi, my name is Sukrita and I’m from India! I’ve studied planning and public policy on the local and international level. Working with Mahboba’s Promise has been a highly rewarding experience for me. It has showed me how much of a difference grassroots organisations can really make, and altered my view of what is possible on a global scale. More than ever, I believe that each of us is capable of initiating positive change in the face of adversity.
Each day at the office, I discover new inspiration, through the people as well as through the work. The organisation is full of people who find immense meaning and value in what they do; it makes for a stimulating environment. Every one of them has a quiet integrity that I find truly uplifting.
I’m grateful to have this opportunity to put my skills to use – I get so much more in return."
