Help The Humanity By Volunteering

Internship program, professional and general volunteer roles

(A) Professional And General Volunteering Services

“Volunteerism is a wonderful state of mind. It urges us to step outside the routine of our daily lives. It propels us to act when we perceive a need. It reminds us that even though our actions are not always selfless, there is great reward in accomplishing a worthwhile task” (R.W. Emerson)

BMT provides humanitarian services to the most vulnerable communities, in line with the Fundamental Principles of humanity without any discrimination on the basis of nationality, race, religion, class, colour, creed, gender or political opinion. Its core areas of work are Disaster Management, education, gender empowerment and Health Care. Keeping in view the retention of volunteers and other volunteer related issues, a need has been felt to develop a comprehensive Volunteer Policy which would be applicable to every level, addressing the volunteer management and retention issues. This volunteer policy will provide direction to the staff and volunteers who are involved in relief and operational work of BMT.



This category includes those volunteers who are either professionals or non professionals and are willing to offer their services to work as a volunteer in different fields. They are considered as General or Community Based Volunteers.
It has been noticed that people from different walks of life come to BMT for volunteering in different fields. These volunteers can further be subdivided as under: –

  • i. Disaster Management Volunteers: Volunteers, especially in disaster prone districts, who are willing to work, related to relief, rescue and assistance in vulnerable communities, should be considered as Disaster Management Volunteer.
  • ii. First Aid Volunteers: Volunteers, with a minimum age of 10 years, medically fit, who offer their services for provision of First Aid in communities and ensure their availability during emergency are considered as First Aid Volunteers.
  • iii. Blood Donor Volunteers: Volunteers with minimum age of 17 years, medically fit who donate blood free of charge to BMT at least once in a year or help BMT in various aspect of its Blood donation, are considered as BMT Blood Donor volunteers.
  • iv. Livelihood/Psycho social support Volunteers: Volunteers at the community level, who are willing to guide people through Psychosocial Support to earn Livelihood are considered as respective programme volunteers.

Note: A General Volunteer could be a volunteer for more than one specific programme also.

Program Description

Bali Memorial Trust has always been on the lookout for active volunteers who are committed and passionate about the cause. The Bali Memorial Trust Internship Program gives school and college going students a chance to gain work experience in a professional environment that works towards the betterment of individuals in distress. Interns have the opportunity to work with the underprivileged as well as contribute to social work in Pakistan.

Program Layout

The program duration is 4 weeks. Interns will indulge in two weeks each of office administration experience and field work experience.

Field Work Program

Interns are required to spend a day each at Bali Girl’s Shelter, Bali Old People’s Homes and Bali Women’s Crisis Centre. On the fourth day the interns may select a case study for their report, and in turn spend time at the chosen shelter. At the end of the internship, all interns have to submit a 1- 2 page report on the case (format below). The interns will also be required to organize and hold an event for the shelter they are working at, after which they receive their certificates.

The idea of the program is to create awareness and sensitize our younger generation about the Physical and psycho social needs of the marginalized sections of society and to recognize and incorporate motivational and inspirational factors. Interns will learn about the basic management and organizational skills while dealing with day to day operational activities of shelters. The program requires complete confidentiality and all interns are expected to report to BMT Staff at 2:00 pm from Monday to Friday.

Office Administration Program

Interns will be required to come to the Bali Memorial Trust Head Office from Monday to Friday (2:00 pm – 5:00 pm) and Thursdays (9:30 am – 3:00 pm), unless requested otherwise. The program will run for 4 weeks, and all interns will be involved in the day to day operational activities. This is a great opportunity for the students to observe the work pattern and spirit of a not for profit humanitarian organization.
