Seeking Experienced UI/UX Designer to Improve Disaster Relief! (Volunteer/Remote)

ORGANIZATION: Disaster Accountability Project

Image_202011091822

Background:

Natural and humanitarian disasters are increasingly prevalent. Donations are delayed, diverted, and do not reach intended beneficiaries. Despite overwhelming response from donors worldwide, billions of dollars do not reach disaster survivors because the international community lacks a way to quickly identify and support locally operating, high-impact organizations in real time during a crisis.

These local organizations receive as little as 3% of donations made after disasters. In contrast, 97% of every donation using SmartResponse can reach local efforts. SmartResponse.org incentivizes transparency, as organizations must share information to get listed.

Outcomes:

SmartResponse serves as a global resource for donors, allowing donations to be made directly to local, on-the-ground organizations. We don't take a percentage or cut. We are helping to remove intermediaries that delay and divert funds from the donation process.

Requirements:

* Require at least two years of professional UI/UX Design experience.

* Knowledge of section 508 compliance in UI/UX design or WCAG 2.1 AA.

Our team uses FIGMA. Volunteers must have access to FIGMA.

Additionally, we use GitHub, Google Docs and Slack for collaboration.

To Apply, please send Resume/CV to: volunteer@disasteraccountability.org. Thank you!

About Disaster Accountability Project

Location:

4402 Bestor Dr, Rockville, MD 20853, US

Mission Statement

Disaster Accountability Project saves lives and reduces suffering by maximizing the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of disaster preparedness, response, relief, and recovery through oversight, transparency, advocacy, and public education.

Description

DAP is the leading nonprofit organization that provides long-term independent oversight of disaster management systems.

DAP engages a dedicated community to advance policy research and advocacy, promote transparency, and encourage the public to participate in oversight, community-based organizing, and discussions about disaster preparedness and relief.

Dedicated citizen oversight is necessary to ensure resources dedicated to preparedness, relief, and recovery are effectively utilized, communities are sufficiently engaged and more resilient, and best practices and lessons learned are implemented so mistakes are not repeated.

Prior to the creation of the Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), there was no dedicated, independent oversight of the agencies and organizations responsible for these critical life-saving responsibilities.
