Our Partner Organisation

Pacific Island Projects (PIP) is a not-for-profit organisation that supplies the sustainable forestry sector with a holistic, one-stop source of information. PIP works closely with communities and collaborates with partners and stakeholders to develop and distribute living and learning resources covering agriculture, forestry, and education. PIP is committed to supporting and strengthening the capacity of people and communities for impactful transformative changes, enabling more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable livelihoods. Through an inclusive and flexible resource distribution approach, PIP’s user-friendly learning resources and information packs are freely available in various formats (audio, visual, and print) and digital platforms (including YouTube).

The Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to assist PIP to strengthen its online fundraising capacity and capabilities, enabling it to raise funds through online networks and platforms. The volunteer will collaboratively work with PIP and its Digital Communications and Marketing Advisor to develop and implement cost-effective strategies for financing PIP’s outreach services.
