 About us

WorldShare is a Christian aid and development organisation. We believe that God is the defender of the vulnerable and calls us to help those in need. Motivated by Jesus’ call to love our neighbour, we support local Christian partner organisations in developing countries around the world.

Our vision is to see lives transformed as people connect to love like Jesus. Together, we restore hope and life to the outcast and forgotten. We assist our partner organisations in their programs which care for the marginalised by protecting children, empowering women, providing education and health care, and demonstrating the love of God. We bring Australian supporters together to resource and encourage our overseas partners, through generous giving, faithful prayer and overseas partner visits. We focus primarily on international aid and development - on protecting and helping those who are marginalised, mistreated and oppressed in developing countries.

Operating since 1943, WorldShare is an established organisation and is currently going through an exciting period of change and evolution.

The role

The International Projects Coordinator is responsible for the coordination and administration of WorldShare’s Child Sponsorship Program and to assist our partners overseas to achieve transformational change for the marginalised and outcast in their communities.

In addition, the International Projects Coordinator will make significant contributions in providing technical assistance to support the effective implementation of WorldShare partner organisation’s programs/projects as required and also nurture relationships, providing encouragement and facilitating information exchange.

Jodie's Story

I began my association with Worldshare in 2013 when I went on an English teaching pilot mission to UKRIM in Yogyakarta with a wonderful group of volunteers. I chose this mission as I have some background in both Indonesian and teaching and also because my sister Lisa was going, but mostly because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people less fortunate than myself.

It was such an amazing, life altering experience and a privilege to be part of. I have now taken the opportunity to help develop the teaching curriculum for UKRIM camps and lead camps in recent years.
