Volunteer.

Why volunteer with us?

When you volunteer to The Hunger Project NZ, you will join a hands-on team and a network of like-minded people on a mission to create a world where every human being is living a life of self-reliance and dignity.
The stories from our programme countries will inspire you to shift your own mindset from "I can't" to "I can" to "We can" and help other Kiwis to do that too!
