Volunteer Requests

Thank you for choosing to explore volunteer opportunities on the BGR website. We are living in a time of great needs around the world and one way you can connect with people in need is by volunteering with our field partners.

There are a few ways to get involved:

  1. Help a field partner with a specific need. BGR’s implementing partners on the ground sometimes need volunteers for specific projects, which we have listed here. For questions or to pursue a specific opportunity, use the contact listed on each request. A PDF copy of the opportunity can be obtained by emailing volunteer@gobgr.org.
  2. Let us know of your general volunteer interest. Occasionally we may have a request to send out to those who have notified us of their interest to volunteer. To be on that list, fill out the form below.
  3. Volunteer in a disaster. For more information on volunteering in a disaster, click here to read our guidelines. Prior training is required.

Prayer Connection Team

In any major disaster response situation, there is a need for funds and often, volunteers. Ongoing community development needs the participation of local community members as well as funds. However, survivors and relief organizations also have another significant needprayer.

Many people can’t give and many people can’t go, but everyone can pray. BGR needs an army of prayer volunteers – for both disasters and ongoing development projects.
