How you can help
We need you! The work of INF Canada is carried out by a team of volunteers with administrative and logistical support from INF’s Kathmandu office. We are actively looking and praying for volunteers in Canada to join our team, including:
- Committed individual with financial expertise to serve on the board as treasurer
- Communicators who are excited to tell the stories of what God is doing in INF and Nepal; online, through social media and to groups and individuals
- Prayer mobilizers
- Networkers who can help us connect with people who’d love to know about and support our work
- Strategic thinkers, organizers and administrators
If you are interested in any of these roles or are simply excited by the vision but not sure yet how you can help then we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch.
