Volunteers are a valuable human resource to help strengthen Oxfam Hong Kong’s capacity to fight poverty and related injustice.
They help minimise our administration costs and in turn allow more resources to be allocated to our poverty alleviation work.
Oxfam considers volunteering as a process of personal development. By engaging in our volunteer services and activities, volunteers can have a deeper understanding of our poverty alleviation work.
During the year 2012-13, a total of 6154 volunteers and interns contributed 50,802 hours to various poverty alleviation activities and fundraising events. We appreciate this contribution of enthusiasm, time, energy and knowledge.
We welcome Hong Kong citizens who reach the age of 15 to be our registered volunteers. We aim to ensure that our volunteers are given the opportunity to realise their potential and that their contribution is recognised.
Volunteers can participate in various types of service, subject to their knowledge, interest and availability.
Volunteer development can take different forms, such as education, training and work involvement. Oxfam runs sharing sessions, talks, workshops and exposure trips for volunteers to learn more about poverty and our approach in tackling it.
