We’re looking for volunteer contributors to help us raise awareness, start conversations and encourage questions about some of the complex and systemic issues we tackle.

What will you do?
Create at least one written series for social media and/or the Project Didi newsletter. Topics could include the myths of trafficking, models of care (institutional & family based care), women’s leadership in Nepal, for-purpose/ethical travel or community based development.
Research relevant and unique topics for content, in line with Project Didi’s work.
Develop and carry out interviews with Project Didi’s partners, volunteers and contacts.

Creative and able to engage audiences in challenging topics from new angles.
A strong writer and researcher, with a good eye for detail.
