Volunteer and help Ukraine

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Whatever your time or ability, we can help you get started, and wonderful changes take place when we take action!

Volunteer roles:

  • Tutor a young person in Ukraine online: weekly sessions to develop English or German language skills
  • Raise funds: you can collect donations instead of gifts for a special occasion, introduce us to your school, church or workplace, or set up a fundraising page with the donation platform www.betterplace.org
  • Share your expertise: help where you are or with the team in Ukraine. Why not contact us today to discuss ideas?

However you would like to help, we will be happy to hear from you and to arrange a call to make a plan together. Get started today by introducing yourself in an email to Jasmine Lehnis at info@care-in-action.org

"We help people to help themselves, because we firmly believe in the capabilities of each person, in the power of initiative, creativity and responsible action." Werner Lehnis, Co-Founder of Care in Action

Why take action?

War in Ukraine means that children are loosing their homes, school is interrupted by air raid sirens or power cuts, and stress prevents children from concentrating on their studies.

In Ukraine there are also more than 105,000 children raised in 751 care institutions1. These children experience negative impacts to their physical and mental development and a high level of social marginalization and exclusion2. Only 10% of children who have been raised in care will successfully integrate into society3.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the endemic spread of AIDS has left many children orphaned and exposed to extreme poverty. Only 20% of children complete lower secondary school.

We help better the opportunities for vulnerable children in both countries, and with the right social development, preparation and enough support, they can beat the odds.
