Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) is seeking a volunteer manager. If interested, please review their announcement below and then contact VSO directly. I first learned of this opportunity via Ghulab Nabi Nizamani–but neither he nor I are associated with VSO.

In Kenya, people with disabilities often suffer from discrimination and stigmatisation, and have limited access to education or employment opportunities. The Kenya Association for the Intellectually Handicapped (KAIH) aims to improve active participation of people with disabilities in Kenyan society and ensure that children with disabilities can access vital inclusion programs.

As you work to develop the organisation’s strategy you’ll pass on vital project management and monitoring and evaluation skills to local staff.

You’ll need a degree level qualification and at least 5 years’ experience in project and people management. Excellent communication and motivational skills are essential, and a strong interest in disability issue and rights would also be useful.

VSO is an international development charity that sends skilled professionals to build capacity in developing nations.

We are urgently seeking managers with a minimum of five years experience to work in roles like this across Africa and Asia. You could also be coordinating development programmes in post-tsunami Sri Lanka, or reviewing best practice in Nepal.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
