Where we work
Our annual report
Join a dedicated team of volunteers (aged 16 - 18) championing Concern's work in their schools.
What is the FAST Youth Ambassador programme?
When you sign up to become a FAST Ambassador you will take on a sponsored 24-hour food FAST or 24-hour digital FAST challenge, as well as becoming a champion for Concern in your school community to help raise money through other exciting fundraising events or activities to support some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people.
Why should you become a FAST Youth Ambassador?
- FAST Youth Ambassadors will be able to take a stand against climate injustice, and the inextricable link to global hunger.
- An opportunity for personal and enriched development, to support the capabilities of creative thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and civic responsibility.
- You will have the opportunity to learn more about the work of Concern through a workshop delivered by the Community Fundraising team.
- You will receive valuable volunteering experience, which will aid with UCAS and job applications, as well as a certificate upon completion.
- Schools will be provided with a project toolkit with Concern branded materials including fundraising resources, lanyards, and a USB.
A staggering 75% of the world’s poorest people rely on agriculture and natural resources for their livelihoods, and increased droughts, storms, hurricanes and heatwaves are making life for the world’s most vulnerable even harder. You can take direct action and do your part to raise awareness and fundraise for Concern Worldwide.
I wanted to make a difference in the world, helping to end hunger. I was also excited to test my own limits during the FAST
Do something amazing and become a Youth Ambassador
Marin and Peter’s story
Hunger has a devastating impact on families, communities and countries – and Marin and her 12-month-old son live this reality on a daily basis.
I feel stressed because there is no food and I worry about what I can feed the baby with.
In August 2020, Marin took Peter to a local health clinic, supported by Concern. It was there that the Concern team discovered he weighed just a tiny six kilos – he was at least 2 kilos lighter than the recommended weight for a child his age.
Peter was malnourished and in danger.
After four weeks on a course of therapeutic food (Plumpy Nut), Peter’s weight increased and there was a real difference in him.
When Peter eats the Plumpy nut he is much better than before, and I wouldn’t know what to do if we didn’t receive this support.
You can help
By taking part in the Concern FAST, you can help us make sure that mums and young children like Jane and Mark-Moses get the food, nutrition and healthcare they need to recover from malnourishment and stay strong and healthy in the long term.
We need your support to help more children like Mark-Moses. Just £60 could make all the difference. It could provide one week of life-saving therapeutic food for five malnourished children.
There has never been a more important time to take part in the FAST for families like this.
