Are you committed to bringing sustainable and profound change to the lives of communities in rural Bolivia? Do you have experience in the realm of social media and fundraising, and ideas for how BiblioWorks can harness the power of the internet to gain more exposure and reach more people? If so, we would love to hear from you!
BiblioWorks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity which has established twelve libraries in poor communities in and around the beautiful city of Sucre, Bolivia. We believe that healthy communities require healthy minds, and our sustainable libraries act as a vital way for communities to develop through literacy and education.
We need a volunteer to work in our Sucre office as our Communications Director. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has previous experience in social media and deploying a social media strategy. You would be responsible for working with the Director to maintain our website, manage our Facebook and Twitter strategy, and offer support to the Director with communications in English translation. In addition, you would support the work of the Volunteer Director in using social media to attract new volunteers to BiblioWorks.
Previous experience of grantwriting and fundraising would also be a plus, as the Communications Director could also take a key role in ensuring the sustainability of BiblioWorks and our expansion in the future. You would use social media to launch fundraising campaigns, as well as finding opportunities in Sucre to raise awareness and funds for the organisation.
This role requires creativity, enthusiasm and a basic to intermediate level of Spanish as all of our permanent members of staff in the office are Bolivian. Experience of the above skills would be a plus, but are not a necessity. A desire to make a durable impact is the most important requirement of this role!
We look forward to welcoming you to our team here in Bolivia!
