English Proof Reading Volunteering Opportunity



Time Commitment

Long-Term (6 months-1 year)

Children of the Mekong (“COTM”) is a charity registered with the UK Charity Commission (No.1116375). COTM works with local communities to improve accessibility and quality of education in Southeast Asia. It is the UK branch of “Enfants du Mekong”, a French NGO founded in 1958.

COTM supports children’s education in 3 ways: 1) with programmes allowing individual child sponsorship, 2) by running education centres and foster houses, and 3) by implementing one-off programmes to improve the accessibility to education. 

Our team is composed of one permanent staff and 3 to 4 interns, all with international profiles, so we don't have English mother-tongue profiles. Every week, we update the "latest news" section of the website http://childrenofthemekong.org/uk/news/

We are looking for a volunteer who could proof read 2 to 3 articles every week (ideally on Monday, but it is flexible), so we can post them online.

There will be occasional additional documents to proof read such as reports or letters.

The ideal candidate will know English as a mother-tongue, with interest in writing and attention to details.

By volunteering with us, you are making a difference, as you will be helping indirectly poor children in Southeast Asia to go to school.



We welcome
