We are seeking the support of volunteers to make a series of videos to promote the organisation's work. The videos will be 2-3 minutes in length, and a total of 5 videos are required. The online volunteers are expected to be experienced and should have a portfolio of work to show. The volunteers will be provided with information and clear guidance in what we actually need; however we would like volunteers' flair and creativity to shine when developing videos for our audience to learn from.The online volunteers will be provided raw materials (draft videos in .mp4 format) - these will be edited and integrated to produce final videos. Still photos can be added as well! A combination of communication methods will be used such as emails, information sharing software such as google drive and dropbox, facebook, whatsapp, and Skype. The volunteers completing their tasks will be acknowledged on our social media sites and in the credits of the materials they helped produce.
Founded in 2003, the organisation has been engaged in community projects in rural areas of Kasese in western Uganda. While it is gaining online presence gradually, there are now films/ videos that shows its work to make the global audience to better understand what we do and the need to be supported to continue serving our target beneficiaries. This assignment is about creating materials to inform the global audience on our work, the needs of the community and the urgency to have more people joining our efforts to be able to sustain our work and reach more people. The FINAL VIDEO should be able to capture the attention of viewers and therefore attract more people towards supporting our cause!
