Company/Organization: Peace Child International


Education and development NGO Peace Child International (PCI) is looking for International Volunteers to support the work of its partner in Liberia, focusing mainly on several administrative tasks as described below, including the training of trainers, mentorship, conducting M&E and reporting and also helping to monitor and implement the BTCA Expansion project, including a donor conference and the development of a BTCA Job and Enterprise Creation Strategy for Post-Ebola Economic Reconstruction efforts in Liberia. The International Volunteer Trainer/Administrative Support Staff will be provided with accommodation, food and a stipend.

Youth Crime Watch of Liberia runs the Be The Change Academy in Paynesville, Liberia. This programme, designed and delivered in partnership with Peace Child International, was originally piloted in Kenya, and seeks out disadvantaged young women with the germ of a business idea. It then trains and mentors them to start and/or build on a viable business plan. The best of these plans then receives funding from the BTCA’s revolving loan fund.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone with some business knowledge and management experience with an interest in youth development, gender empowerment, NGOs and/or international development.
