About African Revival
African Revival is a growing, ambitious charity with around 20 staff based at offices in London (UK), Gulu (Uganda) and Kalomo (Zambia). We believe education is the key to overcoming poverty, and our vision is an Africa where every child has equal access to quality education. Known for our holistic, responsive and innovative approach, we work with primary and nursery schools in Uganda and Zambia, two of the poorest countries in the world, to allow every child to fulfil their potential. We don’t just build classrooms, we empower whole communities – pupils, teachers and parents – to transform government and parent-run schools into thriving learning environments that build brighter, better futures. Established in 2004, we are now looking for a step-change in growth in income to deliver our strategic vision.
We are looking for a passionate, motivated and enthusiastic individual to join our team in our field office in Gulu, to support us with writing funding proposals, reporting from our projects in the area and gathering content for our communications. Working as a team with another volunteer, we are looking to give our beneficiaries an active role in our communications, and we need a capable and independent volunteer to help us do that. We
are also looking to make our funding sustainable through repeat institutional funding. We are keen to foster a mutually beneficial volunteering partnership, and for the successful candidate to help shape their role description and also have opportunities to pursue their particular interests and utilise their particular skill-set.
Responsibilities may include:
You don’t need to have an extensive background in all of the areas listed above, but experience in communications and fundraising would be an advantage. A good eye for detail, a creative flair and the ability to take high quality photos and video as well as the ability to build rapport quickly during interviews is fundamental to this role. Any filmmaking, graphic and website design experience would be a distinct advantage. Knowledge
of, and an interest in, international development and education would also be a bonus. Ideal candidates will be self-motivated, organised, dedicated and able to work efficiently on an individual and a collaborative basis.
