What you can do


Elaine raised money by cooking an Indonesian lunch for her colleagues

There are lots of different ways you can join us to tackle poverty, injustice and inequality.  Whether you choose to fundraise, make a regular donation, campaign on development issues or join us as a volunteer, together we can make a difference.

Raising money

There are hundreds of ways to get involved in fundraising fun, from summer BBQ parties and sponsored events, to cake bakes and off-road adventures! Download our fundraising guide here for lots more tips and ideas.

The money you raise will support communities in Africa and Asia to build sustainable livelihoods. 

We will help you by providing:

- Fundraising ideas and lots of encouragement
- Skillshare International t-shirt or running vest
- Fundraising materials and regular updates about our work

Join our alumni!

Are you one of the many hundreds of people who have volunteered with Skillshare International?  Or, going back a bit further, maybe even with Skillshare Africa or Action Health?  You can continue to support Skillshare International's programmes as part of our alumni...

By sharing your understanding of development with new audiences, you can help others make informed decisions that are based on a deeper understanding of how our everyday choices are linked to the causes of global poverty. 

If you're interested in hosting an event in the UK or would like one of our international volunteers to come and give a talk to your school, community or faith group, please contact us at supporters@skillshare.org or on 0116 254 1862.

If you have any questions or ideas, we would love to hear from you!
