Volunteer for the Brooke
People volunteer with us for many different reasons, but they all have one thing in common, they are helping to improve the lives of working horse, donkeys and mules overseas and, as a result, the livelihoods of countless poor people who depend on those animals to earn a living.
By volunteering for the Brooke, as well as taking an active part in a cause you believe in, you can also:
- Gain work experience
- Meet new people and have fun
- Build your confidence
- Use your skills and learn new expertise
- Make the most of your time
Volunteering in our office
Volunteer work for the department generally arises on an ad-hoc basis, and might involve a variety of administrative tasks. Volunteers usually help in the office between 10am-5pm Monday to Friday. Unfortunately we are unable to offer evening or weekend volunteering opportunities. More details can be found here.

From time to time, we may have volunteering opportunities in our HR, Finance, Supporter Care, ICT and International Development team. Such opportunities will be advertised on our jobs page.

Volunteering in the field
Almost all Brooke staff working directly with communities are nationals of the countries in which we operate. This enables us to support the local economy, it also means that our staff are fluent in the local language and understand the nuances of the local culture and dialects. For these reason, the Brooke does not offer volunteer opportunities for overseas placements.
