Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
We are looking for the services of three online volunteers to develop viable project proposals for the organization. The proposals will then be submitted by our organization to potential funding agencies. The goal is to raise funds for our activities. The volunteers will need basic email services as the main means for our communication. Progress work will be reviewed every day as shall be submitted by the volunteers, preferably after normal working hours and during week ends. We shall provide the volunteers with details of every potential funding agency and all relevant information and materials about REWAC . This is to facilitate the task of the volunteers in the accomplishment of the assignment. However, the volunteers are prohibited from contacting potential funding agencies directly or their personal contacts on behalf of our organization.

Resource mobilization, partnership and donor coordination
The mobilization of financial resources is key to sustaining the activities of grassroots organizations such as the Refugee Welfare Association Cameroon (REWAC) in her service delivery to vulnerable migrants.. One of such main sources of funding remains the international donor community . The volunteers will contribute in raising the requisite funds for the organization to carry out her program and projects in realizing the rights of these vulnerable migrants. Our organization strives to complement efforts made by international development partners and governments to address the challenges posed by the integration of these groups of vulnerable persons into their immediate communities. However, to source funding from donor agencies has become very competitive. Hence, the need for strong, viable and winning project proposals to access the dwindling available funds from relevant donor agencies. That is where the services of the volunteers become indispensable. After the successful collaboration for this assignment, the online volunteers will be awarded certificates of appreciation, and their support shall be mentioned in relevant publications of the organization .
Volunteers: 3 needed
6-10 hours per week / 10 weeks
Fund raising experts, great events organizers, and grants proposal writing experts, with a strong civil society background especially in the humanitarian and human rights sectors are eligible. Strong communication skills, particularly in ICT would be a plus. The volunteers also need to have access to basic internet services and a valid e-mail contact to facilitate exchanges and communication. English is the preferred language but French and Spanish are also welcome.
