Building Community Bridges, Inc.

West Africa

Do you want to use your skills to maintain and improve an intranet website for a nonprofit? And/or build one for a social enterprise? Our present platform is on WEBYDO and the desired candidate must be able to use WEBYDO or be willing to learn within two weeks of appointment and be willing to work in WEBYDO.

Other desired skills are knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, SEO and the ability to write code/ or work with CMS and other graphic designers? This volunteer position is an unpaid, ongoing opportunity. Ideally, the candidate will commit to one year, but a shorter duration is can be arranged. There is also the perk of a sponsored trip to West Africa that would cover accommodations, as well as a country tour with partial sponsorship of travel ticket cost for up to a three-week duration, stay, while you are a volunteer.

Our ideal candidate is an enthusiastic, smart, creative and dedicated Webmaster/ developer and builder who will truly commit to making sure that BCB has a great website. Someone who really wants to donate his/her time, is professional, and excited to share her or his expertise to help our nonprofit in this very important re-launch phase of our growth. You understand the use of our site as a great tool to impact our mission and will do what is required to empower us to achieve our mission. You are passionate about our cause. Prior nonprofit experience not required. Please provide examples of your work or a portfolio.

Thank you!

About Building Community Bridges, Inc.

Location:

244 5TH AVENUE SUITE E283, NEW YORK, NY 10001, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to partner with villages in rural West Africa to elevate the quality of life and to effect endogenous change that will enable the villagers to become self-reliant, self-sufficient and have less dependency on foreign aid. We aim to achieve this through dual efforts in sustainable rice cultivation, and by acting as a bridge to education and resources for the villages.

Description

Building Community Bridges is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New York City operating projects in Togo and Ghana. Our mission is to stimulate sustainable and self-directed community and economic development in West Africa through our social entrepreneurial CEDI program.‚Äč Our past projects have included providing access to clean water in Koussougba, creating a water sanitation and hygiene program to reduce the spread of waterborne illness, and installation of Ecosan toilets in Togo. Most recently, BCB partnered with an agricultural community in Ho, Ghana, to implement a sustainable rice-cultivation project which is now owned by that community. We are presently focused on building a rice processing center in this region. Also, we are expanding our mission to connect the African Diaspora to entrepreneurial development opportunities in West Africa.
