Contexto y objetivos
We have a database of around 7000 contacts that has been compiled from various sources. We need a volunteer who is a wizard at Excel to clean up the columns to make them consistent, ensure that the right data is in the right columns, standardize spellings and clean up any junk in the list. You can do this one-by-one, or if you have the skills you can write scripts or automate many of these tasks!
Diseño, administración y mantenimiento de bases de datos
PARIS21 works with thousands of partners around the world to support developing countries data capabilities. We need to be able to reach out partners on an ongoing basis to share our research, tools, and invite them to events. To do this we need a contact list that is clean and accurate.

Keep this in mind:

Most organizations find the volunteers they need within just a few days and close the opportunities to more applications. So if you see a project that interests you, apply right away and make sure that you show the organization that you have the right skills and motivation for the task!

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV. By registering you accept that you do not make any financial claims to organizations or to UNV. See the Terms of Use for more about standards of conduct and the conditions for using this platform.
