Volunteer in Sweden!

Action10 is a 100% volunteer-driven organisation composed of an amazing team of people who give their time and expertise to reduce extreme poverty. 

Can you commit to under-served communities?

Being a volunteer in Action10 is a serious assignment. We raise hope among under-served communities and we have the duty to not fail our partners nor challenge their hope. Being a volunteer staff of Action10 is a commitment to under-served communities.

Action10 team members must be experienced in related fields, and mature in their understanding of cross-cultural respect. They must have intrinsic motivation, and be agencies for change. They must be aware of and clear over their own motivation, why they want to join Action10 actually. Members must also have enough time to invest and intend to remain for a longer period of time, years.

Are you passionate about improving livelihoods?

Team members of Action10 must not be driven by pity nor a post-colonial superior attitude. Also, people who enjoy routine work, who depend on very firm instructions about what to do, or have eccentric motivation, such as a mark in a CV och social get-together to chill with other people, do actually not fit into the team of Action10. But those who have passion about improving livelihoods in under-served communities, are innovative, self-driven, goal-oriented, who deliver results on time, are excellent team players with supportive and positive attitudes, they are perfect matches to Action10 and we welcome them to the Action10 family with loving hearts.
