Call for volunteers

We are looking for someone with an interest in fundraising to help apply for small grants. CRS’s new social enterprise, Nari Dana, employs slum women trained in sewing and embroidery to make products for sale in India and overseas. We need some extra finance to get the business up and running. Could you spend a few hours every week helping to identify possible sources of funding and prepare grant applications? This role would suit a young person who is thinking of working in international development. No previous experience needed. Find out more

Volunteers needed

The UK Friends need Volunteers to assist with (1) obtaining grants from trusts and foundations, (2) maintaining our website, and (3) producing and distributing our ‘Friends Quarterly’ newsletter. If you are interested in volunteering for one of these tasks, please do get in touch with us at and we can provide you with a more detailed role description and answer any questions.  There is a lot happening in Kolkata and we need to build our team quickly to adequately support the team there.
