Volunteer Opportunity posted by: charity: water
Posted on: July 23, 2013
This is a new initiative created to expand charity: water's presence on the ground and improve the flow of project information to and from the field. The program offers qualified volunteers the opportunity to take an active role in helping charity: water monitor and report on existing charity: water projects. Current placements are available for 3 volunteers in Ethiopia, Liberia and Uganda.
This is an unpaid volunteer position. Volunteers are required to fund their entire experience. charity: water will provide travel insurance and a modest stipend for in-country transportation. We estimate you'll need at least $5,000 to fund your participation in this program.
You take initiative and can work independently
When you land in-country you're going to hit the ground running. You're self-sufficient and will be able to execute your volunteer responsibilities with limited support from our team in New York.
You're flexible and able to adapt to a challenging work environment
You're attuned to the inherent challenges that exist in the regions where charity: water works, and you're ready to tackle anything that comes your way. You're capable of excelling in an environment that's not always familiar, comfortable or easy.
You're a problem solver
Nothing stops you from getting where you need to go or doing the work you need to do. When problems arise, your instinct is to step up, get creative and find a solution.
You're a great communicator
You recognize the importance of clear and consistent communication when working as part of a team. You check-in regularly and are able to concisely and effectively convey your message.
You have experience working internationally and cross-culturally
This isn't your first time in the field. You have international experience under your belt and proven experience collaborating across cultures.
