World Concern has a solid international reputation as an organization that sends qualified, caring professionals into the field, to work alongside local partners and individuals. World Concern believes that people can solve their own problems and that our responsibility is to enable them with resources, encouragement and opportunities. Often that means providing technical support and teaching them the skills they need to obtain sufficient food, clean water and sustainable employment.

World Concern has staff dedicated to helping you with this important task. We are only able to accept donations from inside North America, therefore anyone wishing to work from outside North America must come through a sending agency in their home country.

World Concern is committed to building long-lasting, positive relationships in the areas where we work. Candidates often spend the first six months to a year in language school. There they learn about the new culture in which they'll be living and how to communicate effectively. That's one reason why we ask fieldworkers to make a minimum commitment of two to three years. Many members of our field staff choose to serve much longer.
