Open position: Volunteer Coordinator.
This is a really unique opportunity to join an inspiring bunch of people in Africa and support an innovative grassroots initiative aimed for sustainable development of a school & care center in western Kenya.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual as a right-hand man/women for our busy Program Coordinator in day-to-day operations, project implementation and volunteer coordination.
Through applying your natural organisational skills and desire to spontaneously put on your creative hat at any moment you can, you will be helping to design and coordinate weekly schedules that will consistently blow people away and create happy volunteers, happy children, a happy team and immense project impact!
You will become a valued day-to-day go-to for volunteers – you will absolutely love guiding volunteers through their experience and exceeding expectations. You’ll also always be at the side of Mama Dolfine and the local team of teachers, supporting whatever it takes to make everything mega smooth, impactful and fulfilling every day.
This adventurous and rewarding position is located in an semi-developed laid-back community in western Kenya and whilst there can be challenges to face working in such a spot, there are also many big rewards, for the right person.
This is a beautiful place to live and work, it’s green and the air could not be fresher, and although it will be challenging and frustrating at times, the Korando Educational Center we are embedded is incredibly warm and hospitable.
You need to be ready and willing to work productively and calmly against occasional power-limitations and internet issues, local rules and ways of doing things within a different pace and enjoy immersing in respecting and learning from different cultures.
This is not a 9-5 job it’s more of a lifestyle you need to be looking for. But it is also a great way to be involved in real grassroots development work in Africa.
