Working with us

We’re looking for people, who like us, really care about helping some of the most disadvantaged in our society – vulnerable kids and their Foster families.

We’ve come along from our beginning in 1993, when four  refugees had the idea of making the world around them a little better for some orphans at Christmas.

Today we have over 213 passionate team members, plus our amazing volunteers, all working together to build a better future for orphans in need.

We do this by helping  world’s most vulnerable orphan fully participate in education through a range of programs. We help ensure they acquire the skills and knowledge that will best equip them for a future of opportunity and choice.

Your role, in whichever team you join, will play an essential part in helping us positively change lives.



“I love the people I work with - they're passionate about what we're trying to achieve. They're team players and we all pitch in to achieve results. They're supportive. There's something unique about people who choose to work in the NFP sector - their first priority isn't about money, it's about positively contributing to the community in which we live.”

Learning and development

Your success is our success and we recognize that everyone has an important role to play in learning and development (L AND D). Supported by a core  (L and D) team, we believe our managers are best placed to lead learning and development with each individual playing an active role in their own development.

Based on industry best practice, our approach is based on the 8:4:4 model where the most meaningful learning occurs by ‘learning on the job’ and ‘learning through others’, supported in small part by formal learning.
