Tamar Village relies heavily on the regular commitment of our volunteers in order to support our brothers and sisters. Volunteering opportunities include befriending at our centre, centre operational support, production and sales, street outreach, media and communications, administrative support and many more.

Tamar Village is a place of love and life. Working alongside the ladies and loving each of them uniquely in the way they can receive that love is truly life giving. It refreshes me and nourishes my soul.
Being at Tamar Village has allowed me to see the resilience and hopes of those we often overlook in society. While journeying with each lady and her family may seem too daunting a task for any one volunteer, doing it together with an amazing team makes all the difference. I always leave in awe and full of gratitude that I get the privilege of being a part of this effort. And all it takes is a willing and open heart.
It is an absolute joy to work with the women and children at Tamar. To be allowed into the lives of others, to love and care for their children, to laugh and eat and play and work with them — we think we are serving, but in reality, I feel like we receive the greatest benefit.
Internship and short-term outreach opportunities are available for individuals as well as groups including tailored training, specific programmes and flexible hours. We take time to listen and craft a customised experience for each individual and outreach group.
- Internship for individuals (3–6 months)
- Short-term outreach for groups (3 days–1 week)
- Half-/one-day session

The months I’d spent at Tamar Village were filled with freedom to pursue single-minded devotion. Light was casted on my inadequacies and I was challenged to embrace what was difficult. It gently shaped my worldviews and cemented a foundation on which I grew confident enough to now build my decisions on.
Tamar Village gave me an opportunity to not only engage but also build relationships with the ladies and children. Every day was a new journey of self-discovery. The stories that I have heard taught me to love and share a part of my life with those who are broken. I am blessed to have been part of Tamar Village.
It was a most rewarding and eye-opening experience interning with Tamar village. It has really broadened my mind and understanding of outreach and ministry in ways I didn’t expect, it was a most valuable experience indeed!

Being at Tamar Village has taught me that love is an innate desire; an essential human need that when understood correctly and expressed in a healthy manner, can restore one’s past, heal pain and give hope. I have learn to love and be loved by others who carry different areas and levels of brokenness, that are so similar to my own journey of brokenness. I have also build friendships, that have touched me deeply.
Witnessing what happens at Tamar Village has been amazing. Serving in Tamar Village has richly blessed me in my journey of life. I have grown to love, to show grace, and to see others with fresh lenses of love and acceptance. I have seen how love can touch and transform life and experiencing all of these have also brought joy to my soul. As I experience a deep heartbeat to love and give hope to those who feel lost and broken, it has also help me to show an increasing measure of tender mercy, grace and love to my loved ones.

It has been an exciting journey working with children. It is my greatest joy to see them grow and reach their fullest potential. It has also been a humbling experience to serve alongside passionate volunteers at Tamar Village. Their love for people is infectious.
