About the volunteering opportunity

Schools Against the Hunger: The sports and education project draws the attention of children and young people to the problem of malnutrition in the world. At the same time, it enables them to get involved socially in a sporting way. The project pursues three goals:

1. Education: The Schools Against Hunger team visits schools to inform children and young people about malnutrition, reports on the work in our project countries and how we are fighting hunger worldwide. Each year, we offer new thematic focuses, such as the links between climate change and hunger.

2. Sports: Afterwards, the children and young people engage in sports for a world without hunger. Usually, the schools organize a fundraising run. The pupils mobilized their families and friends as sponsors befor: For each run round they receive a fixed donation amount, which motivates them in their social commitment and at the same time supports the work of Action against Hunger.

3. A world without hunger: In recent years, Action against Hunger has been able to help more than 25 million people in about 50 countries and regions in areas such as nutrition, water and hygiene.

The Schools against Hunger team takes over both the acquisition of the schools, as well as the organization and implementation of the educational presentations nationwide. We are looking for committed volunteers who want to support the project. In close contact and exchange with our staff, you would travel to the schools and deliver our educational lectures to the school classes. The content of the lectures is already prepared. During a two-day workshop you will be prepared in detail for the lecture and equipped with background knowledge about malnutrition, its causes and our work in the respective project countries. In addition, you will be shown pedagogical tools and methods that promise lasting success for your presentations.
