The Organisation 
CARE International is a worldwide humanitarian aid and development organisation fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities. A non-religious and non-political organisation, CARE works with communities to help overcome poverty by supporting development projects and providing emergency relief. CARE has had a presence in Timor Leste since 1994.

The Assignment
This is an e-Volunteer assignment based in New Zealand. CARE International is looking for an Adviser to drive strategic communications priorities for Lafaek, one of CARE International in Timor Leste's flagship projects. Working from home for a minimum of 5 hours per week, activities will include analysis and development of the social media strategy, enhancement of the website, corporate sponsorship and the development of general marketing collateral. 

Lafaek Learning Media is CARE International in Timor-Leste’s flagship project. Lafaek education magazines have been reaching households, teachers and students across Timor-Leste since 2001. There is potential for Lafaek to become a print and online social enterprise to support greater sustainability of
Lafaek and ultimately CARE’s  Long Term Programme.

The Volunteer
We are looking for a qualified and professional volunteer with experience in Communications,  who is able to work from home and use appropriate technology to engage with our partner organisation. A degree in Communications or Marketing will also be highly regarded. This is an exciting opportunity to apply your Communications skills and contribute to the growth of an amazing social enterprise.
