INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL WORK SOLUTIONS INC

  • 8 people are interested

International Social Work Solutions, Inc (ISWS) is a small start-up nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide vulnerable, under-served communities around the globe with access to experienced social work volunteers. ISWS embraces and promotes the social work values of service, social justice, human dignity, and cultural competence in its efforts to support international communities faced with poverty, exploitation, and marginalization. Pre-pandemic, we did this by providing funding to masters level social workers for travel and in-country expenses for direct partnering with local organizations.
Since Covid-19, we have shifted our focus to remote programming and supporting in-country programming.

The ISWS board of directors is a small but quite active and committed group. We are looking for someone with a development background with an emphasis on grant writing and/or fundraising to fill an open seat. Knowledge of nonprofit governance or international social work is not necessary. All of the meetings which are every other month, are remote at this time.
