Background and objectives
RESPECT International has a LARGE website including archives of past ezines, translations in various language and profile pages for various affiliated organizations. We need one online volunteer who is able to update pages as necessary. This will involve working with representatives of war-affected communities directly via email to determine the nature of updates. Must be able to independently upload revisions. Each month we will assign one or more tasks for updating and maintaining the website in consultation with the selected volunteer. We can consult as the month progresses and review the success of the work by the end of the month. Our webmaster, now retired, may be willing to offer some consultation in the initial phases of the volunteer position. All communication will take place by email including that between the volunteer, our affiliates and us. Online volunteers will receive due credit for their contribution.
Technology development
Communication, mass media and art
The mission of the Refugee Education Sponsorship Program is to raise awareness of refugee issues amongst students in participating countries, to build bridges between refugee and non-refugee students through pen-pal letter exchange, and to encourage youth to organize refugee-awareness raising events and to raise funds for their partner refugee schools. RESPECT International works to build awareness of refugee issues in part through a global letter exchange program. This work has been extensively documented on our website. As such our website is a critical tool to create awareness of refugee issues around the world. We want to raise awareness of refugee issues through an updated an informative website.
Volunteers: 3 needed
6-10 hours per week / 13 weeks
Must have experience maintaining a website using php and all modern website standards. Must be able to access the files online, download files, edit the files and upload the updated pages.
