BECOME A SEVADAR
If you would like to volunteer to serve the GRDP and the community as a sevadar (“volunteer servant”), you are welcome to offer your skills as a Trust Fundraiser, Event Organiser or Administrator (Social Media / Marketing).
We require someone to help us collate a database of potential trusts and grants that we can apply for. We can provide all the training you would need. You would require an internet connection, a basic computer knowledge and the patience and desire to search through online databases and websites to pull together a list of grants and trusts that we can apply to for funding to help us meet our aims. We would also love to hear from anyone with experience of making large grant applications to help us secure funding for our projects. Activities resulting in successful fundraising are not expected to be volunteer, but can be paid for according to preceding agreement on usual market price.
We require people to organise and operate our events. This can include the conception, advertising, booking and organising the programme of the event, as well as recruiting and leading a team of helpers to operate it on the day. Additionally to serving the community as social and inspirational gatherings and celebrations, some of our events can additionally serve as fundraisers for the charity. If you would like to be added to our list of volunteers and be part of the team that makes our events happen, please get in touch.
