Oxfam is offering a member of the public the chance to travel overseas to see how the charity is changing lives.
The humanitarian organisation will send someone who does not support the charity to one of its projects in Malawi, south east Africa, to see how Oxfam's money is spent.
The trip is part of Oxfam's See For Yourself campaign which aims to show how giving £3 a month to the charity can transform lives.
The successful applicant will travel to Malawi in July or August and later feature in a TV, print and online campaign aimed at boosting donations to the charity.
Earlier this year Jodie Sandford became the first person to take part in See For Yourself when she travelled to Zimbabwe.
The mum-of-two, from South Hiendley, South Yorkshire, who works as an IT manager, travelled to the Gutu District to see how an Oxfam water project has benefited the community.
Oxfam's head of public fundraising Paul Vanags said: "We believe that the most powerful way to encourage more people to give is to show them our work through the eyes of someone impartial who's never seen it before.
"This trip will not only offer an experience of a lifetime, it will also form the basis of a major initiative to help us find new regular supporters."
Prospective candidates will need to hold a valid UK passport and be available to travel for up to two weeks in July or August. Recruitment is open until June 14. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed from June 21 to 22. To apply visit http://www.oxfam.org.uk/seeforyourself.
