PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT: Morocco
This organization operates on a very strong participatory model.
They would like help doing forums to ascertain community needs & desires and then help designing programs.
Great place to learn and practice project management. Great for experienced OD practitioners.
Morocco is a fascinating country. You would likely work both in city and beautiful rural areas.
EMERGING CIVIL SOCIETY: Mongolia
Mongolia is at a crossroads: it is a young, post-Soviet democracy whose vast mineral wealth has just been discovered.
The crucial question is: will mineral profits for to Mongolia or to the mining companies?
This stellar organization seeks people with a background in public administration, policy research;
or qualitative & quantitative analysis to help develop their NGO's.
This is actually one of our most professional placements....in a country that is most "different" from the West.
So if you really want to "get away", Mongolia is fascinating.
Vibrant & ground-breaking organization that works on renewable energy, climate change. reducing waste, and working with schools, churches and business adopt more environmentally friendly practices would like help as they grow in leaps.
The Caribbean has experience devastating hurricanes so has experienced the impact of climate change. As islands, they are running out of landfill space so know the need to recycle or reduce waste. Likewise, it is expensive to import fuel so they know the need for renewable energy. They would like Organizational Development expert who can help them make the many activities that they do be more manageable and within a modest budget.
JORDAN: Staff & Organizational Development
Cutting edge legal organization in Jordan has a long laundry list of the many staff skills that they want to strengthen:
advocacy; grant writing; communications & social media; strategic planning; strengthening team all over the Kingdom;
quality assurance; professional writing and report writing; focus groups & needs assessment; SPSS; M&E.
I thought Jordan would be boring place but au contraire, staff was young, hip, fun and funny.
