Peacebuilding Solutions (PS) is a humanitarian aid non-profit that offers a technologically and culturally sensitive approach to re-stabilize the livelihoods of people who have become refugees or internally displaced persons. We conduct research to understand and outline the needs of people who have become refugees or internally displaced persons (IDPs) in order to provide the game-changing humanitarian aid that facilitates communities to rebuild and advance on their own terms. The hole in our team we're wanting to fill: PS needs an Online Volunteer with experience as Webmaster who is excited to represent our organization and mission! This assignment is vital to our mission to display who we really are and what we do to those who aren't familiar with us.
