Background and objectives
CAEPA is looking for a team of online volunteers with experience in grant proposal writing on solid waste management and recycling. This will enable us to apply for funds with the aim to contribute to a better environment. Online volunteers will identify potential donors and calls to develop grant proposals. Online volunteers won't be asked to submit fundraising requests or to engage in direct negotiations with donors. CAEPA will provide background information needed to write the grant proposal. Communication will be done through email, skype calls and you will be added to whatasapp group for easy communication

During the last two years, Cameroon has been engulfed in a brutal conflict, known as the “Anglophone Crisis”, a peaceful strike, which began by teachers and lawyers and quickly turned into a revolt against the marginalisation of the English-speaking regions of the country. Non-state arm groups have barricaded highways, destroyed property, kidnapped government officials, and dared the military to follow them into their hide-outs. Through protest activities, such as “ghost town,” they have disrupted economic and social services in the Anglophone regions of the country. A walk through the main streets of Bamenda is an eyesore of a dirt-feast as heaps of garbage dumps compete against each other. Our project strives for maximum waste recovery through composting, recycling, and reuse, and aims at zero waste to be disposed onto dump-yards and landfills. The long-term objective is thus to reduce the environmental degradation caused by solid waste for the Population of Bamenda
Volunteers: 2 needed
6-10 hours per week / 12 weeks
Interested volunteer must have Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering more specifically in Solid Waste and Resource Management, excellent grant proposal writing skills, but also research and analysis skills, as online volunteers will have to express complex ideas in a simple language. Experience with proposal writing, or even with a particular donor can be considered advantages.
