Mission Possible gives volunteers a full spectrum of the humanitarian aid delivery process and involves campaigning, fundraising and a deployment abroad of up to 10 days.
Mission Possible will take you on a journey from fundraising and meeting many like-minded individuals to actually distributing aid in a developing country and to seeing first-hand exactly how much of a difference a donation makes to a person’s life.
Volunteers will begin the project by fundraising and carrying out activities like street collections, sponsored events, walks, bike rides, mountain climbs, charity dinners and family fun days in order to raise funds for the cause allocated to them by Islamic Help.
They will then plan and deliver the aid themselves during a 7-10 day overseas deployment. Volunteers will be supported in planning and delivering aid by the relevant overseas Islamic Help office.
On being accepted on Mission Possible, you will be required to attend a 2-day training course entitled ‘An Introduction to the Humanitarian World’. The training will also include a briefing for the overseas deployment.
On return from the deployment you will also be invited to a 1-day training seminar on campaigning, fundraising and advocacy.
