Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic CNCF’s In The Field Volunteer Programme has been suspended until further notice. CNCF still needs you, we are looking for remote volunteers to support in other ways to help make a real difference to some of our world’s most disadvantaged children.

They need us now more than ever.

Contact the team below to find out more.

In the field

Volunteers have been part of our Foundation since 1989. The role of the volunteer is vital and over the past 34 years we have been impressed by the tireless efforts volunteers have made assisting our Foundation and the children in our care. Each volunteer’s enthusiasm and energy as well as the love, care and support they provide to the children is invaluable.

“Childhood is an endangered. There has to be more love to save it. A child once said to me, “How could you love me so much!” he said. I told him that is why we can do it for him, so he can do it for himself and then for others. All children will reach the top if they are given the opportunities.
They will be the best they can be.”

Comhlámh’s Code of Good Practice is a set of standards for Irish Volunteer Sending Agencies facilitating international placements. The Code is based on a vision of volunteers working in solidarity for a just, equitable and sustainable world. It promotes responsible and responsive volunteering to ensure a positive impact for the overseas project and community, the volunteer and the sending agency. The Code promotes development education, which enables people to more deeply understand the world around them and to address the root causes of inequality and poverty. Every Volunteer Sending Agency, which is party to the Code of Good Practice, commits to the implementation of the Code’s five values that underpin the work of international volunteer programmes. These are solidarity, respect, social justice, ecological sustainability and integrity. Full details of the Code are here.
