The Tegaru Disaster Relief Fund strives to build a team of dedicated volunteers and interns from students to working career professionals to support our mission to provide urgent humanitarian relief and development assistance to communities across Tigray.

Our program allows flexible community involvement through two different pathways: volunteer or internship. The volunteer pathway is for any person looking to get involved with TDRF and contribute their talents on an ongoing basis to the organization. The internship pathway is for our young adults that are seeking a short-term arrangement to build their professional experience and gain transferable skills.

All volunteer and intern opportunities are virtual/remote, unpaid positions allowing people from around the globe to contribute to the critical work of TDRF.
