Volunteer Collection Coordinators needed!
If you think you’ve got what it takes to lead collections in your local area, then we need you. We're looking for volunteers to manage collection tins by distributing and emptying them, and sending in the funds to ActionAid. The role will also involve organising collections during emergency appeals, collecting at ActionAid organised events and coordinating collections with other supporters in your area. If this is something you think you can do, please get in touch with us using the contact details at the bottom of the page.
The rules around collections can seem a bit daunting, but we're here to help you every step of the way. Download our collection guidelines for collection to ensure you know all the important stuff before you start.
How your support helps
Birke is 20 years old and has a one-year-old daughter. She is a member of the Adidewta beekeeping cooperative in Ethiopia.
ActionAid provided modern beehives and funds to the cooperative, and within one year the group had more than quadroupled their honey production. With the income produced, they plan to increase their production even further over the coming years.
Birke says, “When my child is old enough my intention is to send her to school. My vision is to have my own bee project to hand over to the next generation.”
