Open Volunteer Positions
Research Missing National Statistics on Demographic Profiles
We want national statistics on demographic parameters as it helps us to identify gaps in representation in our survey.
This task will involve check what demographic information is asked in the survey, and looking for corresponding national statistics. We had already identified initial demographics, but are missing some.
Design WASH-related Curriculum and Training Materials
WISE is developing training material on water, sanitation, and hygiene in order to help team members obtain the knowledge and skills they need to carry out their roles effectively.
As a volunteer with the Knowledge Team, you will design learning outcomes, lesson plans and training materials (e.g. slides, handouts, activities, learner's guides) on a topic of your choice. The design process will involve conducting research on the topic, gathering feedback from fellow team members, and piloting the training. Samples will be provided, and we have experienced trainers to guide you through the process.
COVID-19 has influenced the education of so many children around the world. Many don't have reliable internet connection, and others lack a place to do their online classes.
