Summary

We are looking for a content copywriter/marketer with solid SEO knowledge who can help improve our online presence.

Detailed description

In order to highlight our work in Liberia via our website, we are looking for a


Volunteer Content copywriter/marketer (Project)


Mineke Foundation focuses in Liberia on the themes of education and entrepreneurship. Over the past few years we have completed a number of major projects and moved to a new location. In the meantime we are also starting a few new projects.

Our Dutch and English websites are lagging behind these developments. There are still old projects on it, the presentation could be better and new projects are missing. In addition, the websites are not SEO-friendly.


We are looking for a content copywriter/marketer with solid SEO knowledge who can help improve our online presence . Someone who, based on our objectives and with our target groups in mind, knows how to find the right words to touch, inspire and activate people. You also know how to use testimonials to make the impact of our projects visible.


In addition, you know how to create the connection between image and text on the website. You do this in collaboration with our board and the volunteers involved, including our part-time photographer/social media volunteer in Liberia.


When do you fit well in our team?

If you:

  • Have a hands-on attitude
  • Are a self-starter & self-employed worker
  • Speak Dutch fluently and your English is good
  • Have a learning attitude and are willing to both learn from our team in Liberia and transfer knowledge to them
  • Good advice, coordination, organization and collaboration
  • Interested and able to work effectively in a small remote first organization with big ambitions and a small wallet
  • Want to use your skills and experience to make an impact in one of the poorest countries in the world


Good to know

Mineke Foundation consists of 2 organizations:

  • The Liberian local NGO in Liberia that we internally call MF LIB. MF LIB is a fully accredited local NGO in Liberia, as well as a fully accredited vocational school and primary school.
  • The Dutch ANBI foundation that we internally call MF NL. MF NL is the support foundation of MF LIB (fundraising, communication, etc.) and also takes care of the knowledge transfer and development of MF LIB.


The board of MF NL is a cooperative board. That means they are active as volunteers with a few extra tasks. Board and volunteers in the Netherlands meet twice a year. There are also 2 moments in the year when MF NL has group meetings via Zoom with MF LIB.


In addition, you will have (digital) coordination moments with 'your' volunteer(s) and/or team members in Liberia.


How much time does this take?

Can be arranged at your own discretion, but we are happy to complete this project within six months.


What do we offer you?

  • The opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of children, young people and women in one of the poorest countries in the world
  • A pioneering role in the further development and professionalization of a distinguished foundation
  • Working with a motivated and committed team
  • An international network of professionals


Interested?

We would like to meet you!

About Mineke Foundation

Mineke Foundation works in Liberia. Our goal is to help people - especially young people and women - to become economically self-reliant. We focus on education and entrepreneurship. We have three projects:

== The Damiefa School is a social enterprise that provides affordable private education from kindergarten through eighth grade. The national Liberian curriculum is complemented by an Art education program developed by Dutch teachers and a Reading comprehension program developed by American teachers for Liberia. It is our ambition to grow the school into a fully-fledged secondary school.

== Our Women's Club is a social educational program of monthly workshops & meetings for women. The workshops deal with topics such as (reproductive) health, women's rights, leadership and sexual violence. The training courses focus on entrepreneurship, supplemented with micro-loans. In a few years we hope to add adult education as well.

== The Resource Center is a multipurpose room with a small library/computer lab with two user groups. On the one hand, these are the children of the Damiefa School, on the other, they are young people between 15 and 35 years of age. Mineke Foundation offers them – both itself and in collaboration with partners – a series of training programs aimed at improving their position in the labor market. The training includes soft skills, entrepreneurship and digital skills.

Mineke Foundation is an award-winning foundation known for its quality and professionalism. We are an accredited local Liberian NGO, vocational school and private (primary) school.

A small, committed and motivated local team carries out our projects in Liberia. The Dutch foundation consists of international volunteers and supports our team in Liberia, among other things with fundraising, social media & communication and knowledge transfer. There is regular contact between the teams.

Our fun and enthusiastic volunteers will make you feel at home quickly! We all work from home and have regular Zoom calls, including with our team in Liberia. Volunteers living in the Netherlands usually meet twice a year. Good to know: we speak both Dutch and English, but speak English during calls & meetings.

Mineke Foundation was founded in 2009 by Tonia Dabwe to build on the work her parents started in Liberia in the late 1960s. The foundation is named after Tonia's Dutch mother who has been missing in Liberia since the civil war.
