Thank you for your interest in WPD. There are many ways in which you can get involved in our important work. Without the hard work and dedication of interns/volunteers we would not be able to continue to speak on behalf of widows around the world.
Throughout the year we take on interns, sometimes for a specific task, others for a length of time with a number of different projects. As well as general admin, interns often work with the Director to research papers, prepare for events such as CSW, or update the website and social media. Working for a small NGO means that you often get bigger projects with greater responsibility. Please do get in touch if you wish to be considered for an intern role and we can let you know what we are looking for.
We are always looking for volunteer speakers to help raise the grass root support for WPD. There are also other roles, including fundraising, social media and website management which we look for. If you have some time to spare and would like to work with us then please do get in touch. We work remotely, so internet access and a place to work is a must. In return we will look to provide information and training for our volunteers to help them progress in the role.
Social media ‘shout out’.
Much of our work is about raising awareness of the issues that widows face. You can help us do this by joining our Facebook page, sharing our statuses and liking our posts. Also by following us on Twitter at WPDNGO. Again each share and ‘shout out’ helps to increase our reach and get the facts out there. We are dedicated to ensuring that widows’ voices are heard and you would be playing an important part in helping us to achieve this.
We appreciate all the help and support and it cannot be underestimated how much even the smallest act can make a difference to the widows we are seeking to empower and support. For more information on any of these options please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put the area that you are enquiring about in the subject title (e.g. Intern Program.) We will be in touch as soon as possible to answer your query!
