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;
- 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.

Fundraising Volunteer Intern
Get that foot in the fundraising door with this dynamic role.
We’re looking for a highly motivated and committed intern, with a passion for international development, to support Temwa in delivering necessary fundraising and communications work. Your workload will be varied from social media posting to challenge event support to representing Temwa at events.
You will be part of real change, raising awareness and raising funds to transform the lives of some of the poorest communities on earth. As a key member of the team, you’ll have real responsibilities and will be able to apply your existing skills and experience to our organisational mission, whilst developing your own skill set.
The final deadline is by midnight, Wednesday 5th December.
Plough Door Collectors
The Plough Inn in Easton is a valued supporter of Temwa and a community focussed, 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 that they are available. 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.
If you would like to join the Plough Door Team please email [email protected] for more details and to sign up to shifts.

Other volunteering opportunities
If there’s nothing specific listed here but you have a burning desire to volunteer in some capacity, either in the UK or Malawi, send an email to [email protected] with your CV and explain what you’re interested in doing and your previous experience. We can only take volunteers where there is a specific organisational need so we can’t promise anything, but we’d love to get you on board if we can.
