The group has 7 active international members and we are looking for more team members that will be involved in developing and implementation of development project in cooperation with our partner in Mozambique. The group is waiting at the moment the reply from our donor (CISU) in order to start the DKK 500.000 project together with our local partner. In November-December 2013, a team of 3 members have been on an appraisal visit in Tete, where, together with the local partner, agreed on the terms of the project, met the target groups and developed the project application. The project is envisaged to be implemented over a period of 18 months, while other visits to the region are planned over this period.

 

We expect that you:

  • Have knowledge and/or interest in Africa related issues and in development work.
  • Will actively involve in our work (usually we meet once or twice a month, in afternoons or weekend, while tasks can be done from home; however busy periods are likely to appear, as we often work with deadlines).
  • Have good writing skills (it’s not necessary to have knowledge of development project writing, as this you will learn on the way while working together). A background in Journalism or Communication is desirable, as part of the work will also be conducting campaign work, writing articles, lobbying, etc.
  • You speak and write fluent English, while Portuguese and Danish are considered an asset.

Examples for tasks: writing articles, international lobby work, campaign work, project writing.

 

We offer:

  • Experience in writing project applications and coordinate projects.
  • Opportunity to travel to Afrika as part of our project related visits.
  • The chance to be part of a multicultural group with a great team spirit.
  • Opportunity to join Afrika Kontakt’s social events.

Please note that the work is unpaid - however the costs for travel to and within Africa are covered.

 

Interested?

Write a few words about yourself and send them to our group contact: mozambique@afrika.dk. We will then invite you to a meeting where we tell you more about ourselves and the group's work and get to know each other.
