Our volunteers tell us, in this video, why they love being part of our family.

Amanda, a volunteer Learning Clubs Tutor, with one of our Learning Clubs says she gets a buzz from volunteering, feeling like she’s doing something worthwhile.

Ha, another volunteer Tutor, says: "I actually look forward to the time that I give here every week because I get so much more than what I give. It's only an hour and a half of my time, and that's nothing in comparison to what is actually achieved when you're helping these children."

John, who volunteers in one of our operation centres, feels like he is contributing to a great cause doing what he does best.
