About

Looking to invest your time and talents in a way that makes a lasting impact? By providing your expertise finance to Circle of Peace International (COPI), you can ensure that orphans and low-income students in Africa get the key to a better life: a quality education.

COPI is the outgrowth of one woman’s determination to provide a better life for children in her hometown, Makindye, Uganda. In 1994 Joanita Senoga, a second grade public school teacher, could no longer abide her school’s practice of expelling children for failure to pay school fees. She started a school that provides education to children who want to learn -- irrespective of their ability to pay.

COPI is searching for a Newsletter Editor with excellent writing and editing abilities. The Newsletter editor will Plan, solicit, and edit articles, layout newsletters and oversee distribution of quarterly publication. The Newsletter Editor serves on the Communications Team and reports to the Communications Director.

The Newsletter Editor must have the ability to effectively communicate stories ideas with potential writers and arrange for their volunteer submissions. Must have the ability to attractively layout newsletter using appropriate computer programs. Must have the ability to take photographs and manipulate photographs for publication. Good understanding of distribution systems, including Post Office requirements and how to effectively use mass email lists. Ability to work without supervision, carry out responsibilities a timely manner and interact well with others.

If you fit this bill, we would love to hear from you. Just think, if all children in low-income countries could acquire basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty. What better way to invest your time and talents!
