Are you passionate about human rights?
Would you like to join a team of passionate and like-minded individuals working towards gender equality?
If you share our concerns, we invite you to join us! We always need more...
We welcome anyone interested in working towards justice and equality for marginalised groups of people in Malaysia, in particular women and children.
We are always looking for motivated new volunteers to join our team.
What would you be doing?
Well that's up to you!
We are looking for volunteers to help with our social media communications, maintaining our website, fundraise, event organisation and management, work with children and youth, assisting with our outreach program... the list is endless!
If you have a special skill or interest, let us know!
We ask all new volunteers to complete a short training program so that you understand who we are and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to work with us with motivation, passion and enthusiasm!
We also ask for a minimum six month commitment. This may mean you visit the centre once a week, or once a fortnight, or perhaps you will be working from home and communicating via email. We want our volunteers to be engaged with the work we do and we want you to feel like you can affect change in your communities, this is why we have a minimum commitment. We hold regular volunteer meetings that we expect you to come along to, this way you will feel part of a team and a community that is supportive and encouraging.
If you would like to volunteer with us, please download our Volunteer Application Form (in English or Bahasa Melayu) and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come in and visit us.

We ask all new volunteers to complete a short, exciting and interactive training program! The program is free and introduces the work we do at SAWO, why we do it and how you can help! The training runs over a five week period, with one two-hour session per week.
The program explores issues relating to gender, gender equality, feminism and advocacy. It is designed to inspire discussion and dialogue around issues that are relevant to both men and women in our daily lives here in Sabah. The program also explores the international context and Malaysia's place within this.
The training will be conducted at different times throughout the year, depending on the availability of new volunteers.
