Dear friends of The Giving Exchange (TGE),
If you are interested in helping TGE make a difference in the world, we have a special message for you.
TGE is a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the economic and social conditions of underprivileged communities around the world by promoting sustainable initiatives and connecting people in need with those who can provide the necessary resources.
Over the last 3 years, we have seen TGE growing significantly with more projects published online and more people interested in coming with us to Kenya. For example, this year, TGE brought a team of 23 people to Kenya to help with 12 different schools and orphanages! We are coming to realize that our impact is growing- which is why we need help.
We are looking for volunteers (part-time, or full time) who have good communication skills, who know how to promote a cause, and who have a heart to help those in need.
We are specifically looking for help in the following areas :
– website (updates, posting pictures and projects, improving our presence on the internet, improve design…)
– social media (posting 3x per week on twitter, facebook, instagram via hootsuite)
– fundraising for projects (find donors, complete grant applications (US, France, and/or EU), prepare presentations for fundraising events, prepare fundraising events…)
– partner development (find partners in Kenya or other non-profits who are also working in the same field to increase our impact…)
The volunteer can set his or her pace, determine the hours each week she/he would like to work and have the freedom to work from home or alongside our president. Ideally, we are looking for someone to help for at least a year.
We are also looking for 2-3 new board members. The TGE board meets once per quarter and will help with defining the strategy for TGE, with fundraising, as well as making sure all projects run smoothly. If you have any suggestions on who we could ask to be a board member, or if you would like to join the board please let us know.
If you believe in what The Giving Exchange is doing, and you want to help us make a difference, please send this message to your respective networks and/or anyone who may be interested in helping us (short term or long term).
Thank you in advance for your help!
The Giving Exchange Team
