Background and objectives
The current CIRMAD website is not professionally managed to really showcase our activities. We seek to update, improve and extend our website to improve user functionality and experience, and support our global awareness and fundraising initiative. We are looking for two online volunteers to provide graphic and web design expertise, and be responsible for creating, enhancing, and implementing new web page designs in a primarily WordPress environment using open source technologies; for our communication strategy and branding. The online volunteers are expected to be available for 15 weeks, starting as soon as they can. The online volunteers will be promptly provided all necessary or required information by this Coordinator/CEO of the organisation. For access to the internet we use rechargeable modems or keys and cyber cafés.
