"In partnership we can make a difference"

Volunteer

We believe volunteering and the stewardship of the time and skills God has given us is one way of participating in global mission. Volunteering doesn't simply have to be about stamping envelopes and running coffees, GMP believes that volunteers can be central to the work we do. Email us if you are interested in finding out more - we would love to chat with you and work out a role that matches your skills with GMP's needs - info@gmp.org.au

Vietnam

Medical and Social Services

There are many areas of need in Vietnam, particularly in the medical and social services fields.  Some hospitals welcome volunteer doctors and specialists to come for short intensive periods to offer free clinics and surgery to disadvantaged Vietnamese. Running training clinics and workshops for local doctors in specific areas of expertise are also possibilities. Social Workers are also a new area opening up in universities; lecturers and/or workshop trainers are also areas that welcome exposure to contemporary practice. If you would like to enquire further about using your specific area of expertise to support community development in Vietnam, please contact val@gmp.org.au.

Bright Solutions' Intern in Vietnam

There is an opportunity for someone to work alongside Fiona Briers with the Bright Solutions' women. This person would be involved in developing relationships with the women and supporting them in their journey toward new life. It is a great learning opportunity for someone who is open to where God might lead them globally. A two or three month placement is envisaged but the length and time of year are negotiable. For further information contact val@gmp.org.au.

Bright Solutions' Distributor in Australia

Key to the Bright Solutions' Projects is empowering marginalised women by employing them to make products that are sold in Australia. Promoting these products in Australia is crucial in this process. The role of distributor would mean promoting the sale of Bright Solutions' products amongst churches, play groups, baby shops, fair trade shops and craft shops – anywhere you think there might be a market. We would love to see this happening all over Australia, but if you would rather take on just your state or region first that’s not a bad idea. Check out the full description here or contact val@gmp.org.au for further information.
