As a start-up not-for-profit organization, we need a website as a primary tool to communicate with our partners, stakeholders and the public. Therefore, we are looking for a volunteer with website development experience to help develop the organization’s site, based on templates provided by the website host. We have drafted the basic content in English and French as a starting step with limited information. Content will be added as it is created in parallel with the organization’s operational activities. Our partners and stakeholders are multilingual, but we will be using English and French in our partnership development and operational activities. Hence, we will need both an English website and a mirror French site with functionality to switch from one language to another. We would like to have the website with basic content in place at the soonest possible. Interested volunteers should include their resume highlighting their relevant experience and education in their application.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
This position is a great way to gain professional experience while contributing to saving lives (of thousands of people who die every year in the process of seeking better socioeconomic opportunities) and improving socioeconomic wellbeing of disadvantaged people in developing countries. All of the work can be carried out remotely.
How will the organization benefit?
The website will be our primary means of communication with our partners, stakeholders and the public. The website will increase our organization’s credibility and trust, and help our partners, stakeholders and the public identify the common ground for supporting our efforts to save lives, improve socioeconomic wellbeing of disadvantaged people while enhancing stability and sustainability of our partners’ systems.
