Crippling and offensive poverty prevents third world children from learning and so often, from surviving.  We seek someone who feels compelled to do something about this.

Girls and women have little to no rights in so much of the rural third world.  The leadership of women can be near unheard of.  We seek someone who believes this inequity deserves the work needed to reverse it.

The cross-cultural divide is real and difficult.  We need someone who will have patience with cross cultural communication.

 

We are seeking a college student for a one year, part-time (approx. 10 hours per week) paid internship. You will work directly, long distance with our female staff member, helping her with accountability, organization, confidence and self-sufficiency as a leader.  In the summer, you would be expected to travel with our team to Sierra Leone for 2-5 weeks to work in person with the staff and the students of our rural primary school and our city restaurant.

Responsibilities:

·      Accountability of Sponsored Secondary School Home in Sierra Leone re student progress, housing/living issues, health issues, character development.

·      Bi-monthly communication with Tato Primary School re publicity, administration, purchasing, projects.

·      Oversight of all expenditures and staff compensation related to above.

·      Communication with our American personnel: weekly reporting to Director, monthly attendance at online Leadership Team meetings, occasional presentations to groups.

 

Additional Qualifications:

·      Decent health for third world travel

·      Emotional ability to witness poverty

·      Drive and conviction towards integrity.
