Who are we?
The Inspire volunteer abroad program at Islamic Relief Canada is a unique opportunity that provides hands-on education to volunteers on the field and at home. Over the past 4 years, we have taken 17 cohorts to 7 different countries to learn from our teams and right-holders on the ground. This program focuses on having volunteers raise donations and awareness while allowing them to serve their communities locally and globally.
Through this experience, IRC volunteers will engage directly with orphan children in Pakistan in order to better understand their circumstances and raise awareness.
Support our volunteers and take part in supporting this noble cause!
What is this for?
The funds raised will go towards Islamic Relief’s projects in Pakistan. This project in Pakistan will empower vulnerable individuals and communities and engage with orphan children.
What will I be doing?
Over the duration of the field study, we will focus on providing orphans with psychosocial support and educational activities in addition to the distribution of food, clothes, and hygiene items and conduct other community service activities.
Islamic Relief Canada’s Volunteer Abroad Programs are a unique way to contribute to some of IR Canada’s international projects. Prior to volunteering abroad, selected volunteers to raise funds that go directly to the project they will be assisting with.
While on the field study, volunteers will be part of a collaborative program where they will take part in several activities, including peer-to-peer learning opportunities, food distributions, beneficiary home visits, and building refurbishment.
This experience allows volunteers to see an existing IR Canada project, contribute to the project through their fundraising efforts, and positively interact with beneficiaries and project staff.
Islamic Relief: Pakistan
Since 1992, Islamic relief Canada has been supporting vulnerable communities in Pakistan through WASH assistance, health services, the construction of shelters, winterization kits, livelihood development projects, and the distribution of food (including Ramadan and Qurbani programs). Pakistan is home to more than four million orphans. Being a vulnerable population, orphans are more likely to suffer from malnutrition, food insecurity, and physical/mental abuse compared to children living with their parents.
