Volunteer outreach coordinators needed on Saturday

Tonymay Foundation is a non-profit organisation incorporated with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission in 2011. The foundation was borne out of the urgent need to create awareness about sickle cell disorder (SCD) and address the lack of proper health management of the disorder in Nigeria. The foundation is focused on addressing the major factors that are contributing to the number of new recorded cases of sickle cell disorder which is ignorance about SCD and the importance of genotype especially for people in sub-urban and rural areas. Anthony and Mary were two warriors lost to the fight against sickle cell disorder and the foundation was established in their honour.

The organisation is currently embarking on awareness campaigns in various parts of the country to address high level of ignorance about the disorder. A sickle cell awareness campaign has been scheduled to hold in Ketu, Lagos state, THIS SATURDAY, 6th October, 2018. It will begin by 8.00am.

The foundation needs volunteers to distribute awareness fliers and talk to people about the need to know their genotypes. Volunteers should be skilled at communicating effectively and have basic knowledge about sickle cell disorder.

 

This opening is for volunteers resident in Lagos and are able to be at Ketu on Saturday.

A series of films will be shown and volunteers will be needed to work with students after the screening on activities including drama, arts & crafts and poetry.

The volunteers will act as chaperones for the students during excursions, making sure to promote the organisation’s mission of using creativity to build Africans for the future. They will also be expected to be positive role models and be keenly interested in making positive impact on the kids.

All materials necessary to effectively mentor Public Art Africa youths will be provided. Volunteers should make sure they dress appropriately and comfortably. They are required to be:

Volunteer for Accountability Lab

Accountability Lab catalyses a new generation of active citizens and responsible leaders around the world. The organisation trains, mentors, and extends resources to local change makers to strengthen systems of accountability and unleash positive social and economic change.

Their flagship project, Integrity Idol Nigeria, is the first of its kind and will be an annual campaign with the explicit goal of “naming and faming” honest government officials by bringing Nigerians across the country into a conversation about integrity and accountability. Integrity Idol Nigeria will generate support for civil servants who are serving the public good, highlighting their excellent work in public in an independent way that builds a positive narrative. This will in turn lead to behavioural change that can improve lives and affect Nigeria positively. It will also allow Nigerians to be part of a corrupt-free Nigeria that they can help to build.

Integrity Idol relies heavily on the incredible work of active volunteers (one in each state of Nigeria) for:
– Outreach
– Nominations: The form are made available and collected through as many channels as possible including: online (www.integrityidol.org), through email to team members, and hard copy collected at community centres, government MDAs, coffee shops, events, etc. Forms are reviewed by volunteers who must provide clear justification for the nomination. It has to be clear that the nominee is being nominated for integrity, for example, not simply for good work in the community. Team and volunteers conduct background checks by phone by calling nominators and discussing the nominee.
– Management of Integrity Idol events
– Community building

Basic requirement for this task is ability/ competency to communicate clearly, data collection skill, and community/ people engagement.

The campaign will have volunteers across the country, so that even the furthest to reach communities can participate in the campaign. We will be selecting one volunteer in each state of Nigeria. Kindly include your state of residence in your application based on the guidelines below.
