We’re very lucky to have had lots of fantastic volunteers come through our door over the years – from students looking to gain some work experience, through to retired finance directors keen to share their wisdom. We plan all our volunteer placements to ensure that not only do we receive valuable support, but also that our volunteers have the best possible experience.
There’s a variety of ways you can get involved, both in the UK and – occasionally – in Malawi:
- internships in communications, trust fundraising, events fundraising, and programmes;
- joining our Summer Festival Tour team;
- lending a hand at exciting events, such as art auctions or concerts;
- cheering on our fundraisers as they take on challenges for us;
- through the Accountancy for International Development scheme.
Voluntary Programmes and Fundraising Support
We offer UK and Malawi based voluntary internships or expert support roles to assist the UK and Malawi team goals of bringing communities together to create sustainable change. See current opportunities below.
CALL FOR BRISTOL BASED INTERNSHIPS
From sharing stories of hope to helping run our stand-out events (including wrestling challenges and Bristol Come Dancing), you will play a key role in engaging new and existing supporters to help us meet our fundraising goals. Our voluntary internships provide you with real responsibility and experience to be part of transformational change in one of the poorest countries in the world. You will be able to apply your existing skills and experience to our organisational mission, whilst developing your own skill set.
You could join the Temwa Carbon Balance, Grants and Programmes and Communications teams or provide general administrative support.

Community Fundraiser: Plough Door Collectors
Start Conversations | Raise Money | Transform Lives
The Plough Inn in Easton is a valued supporter of Temwa and a community focused, much loved local. Every Friday night donations are collected on the door for Temwa. We have a team of Plough Door collectors who are paid to run the door from 9pm – 1am, choosing shifts on the Friday nights. This is a great dose of pocket money for freelancers and students, a brilliant way to meet the locals, enjoy an evening soaking up the Plough’s lively atmosphere – and of course help in raising invaluable funds for Temwa.
To join the team, sign up here!
