Temporary shelters being used as classrooms

We are launching a crowdfunding campaign in the next couple of weeks to enable urgently needed classrooms to be built at the school. We are looking for a few committed people to join our small project team made up of fellow volunteers.

Location: we all work remotely, so you would work from your own home or office.

Time commitment: we need people able to give from 1-8 days of their time between now and June 20th 2016. Hours are flexible and can be worked around your other commitments.

Here are the volunteer roles:

Marketing strategy to promote crowdfunding campaign


Our small team of volunteers needs advice on marketing strategy, as well as help implementing it if possible.


We need a copywriter with flair and persuasion skills to develop our tone of voice and tailor our messaging. This will be used across emails, web pages, social posts and video scripts.

Promotional video scripting and production


We need to make a short video to promote our crowdfunding campaign which launches in the next couple of weeks, and need help to plan it, write the script, shoot and edit it.

Crowdfunding campaign advice


We haven’t run a crowdfunding campaign before, and are seeking advice from someone with experience in this area on how best to go about it, ideally as well as in running the actual campaign. We aim to raise £3,000 for much-needed classrooms at the school by late June, and have a small team of volunteers working on the crowdfunding project.

Graphic design

We need a designer to create a campaign title treatment, graphics for our marketing materials and a graphic to show how we are progressing ot our target. Knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator is required, specialist digital design skills are helpful but not essential.

PR lead

We need someone with PR experience to develop and implement a PR strategy for the campaign, to sit alongside our marketing  and social media plans.

The school receives no government funding, and relies on support from around the world to keep it running. It was founded by its director Gertrude Banda in 2004, and in 2011 won a Pan African Award for Entrepreneurship in Education.
