Fascinating International Opportunities in Public
1. KENYA: New Constitution; New Opportunities for
Under Moi, human rights activists were jailed and
Those same activists are the ones who have pushed for and
gotten a new constitution which devolves power from Nairobi and the president
to local government.
This shift is absolutely earth shaking as it means the
demise of the African despot.
But the problem is: Kenyan universities train in
political science but not public administration.
Kenya does not have a cadre of people that can govern at
the local level. Come help with trainings all over Kenya!
Never before have citizens had the opportunity to have
such a voice in matters that effect their daily life.
But this opportunity will be squandered unless average
citizens understand the import of these changes.
Come help with trainings about how this new Constitution
empowers citizens and local governments.
2. COSTA RICA: Learning to Lead by Laughing
Our micro-finance program in Costa Rica is lead by one of
the most hilarious directors I have ever seen!
She always has her staff in stitches, and thus willing to
do anything to help the team.
Come learn about leadership from one of the best. Spanish
fluency a must.
3. UGANDA: Community Organizing
This stellar organization in Uganda does amazing work
with having communities assess their strengths and needs, and map out how the
community, together, can achieve their goals. Come help with this true
4. Fund Raising and Grant Writing
On this last year's Whirlwind Tour of Africa, every
organization asked for help with grant writing and fund raising.
We have already launched some ways of raising money based
on building enterprises that generate money - "hand ups vs hand
outs." e.g. One domestic violence program will have 3,000 laying hens that
will pay 3 salaries!
But if you have a talent for pulling in money, then we
can discuss which program most needs your help.
