VOLUNTEER

Urgent call for project coordinator!

Are you over 25, with a driving license, full of energy and willing to work hard to make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of people living in camp Moria on Lesvos? We need you!

The Lava Project is a new NGO running a public hygiene laundry to serve Moria Camp.
We started this year and currently wash and dry around 1,600 bags of laundry a month. We need someone to join our existing small team for at least 6/10 weeks, preferably longer, as we take the project forward towards our planned capacity of between 3 – 4 thousand bags a month.
This is not 9 to 5 and not a 5 day week, the hours can be long! You must be over 25 with a full driving licence and willing to drive our Renault Trafic van.
The role will involve liaising with partners in or near the camp and helping to develop new relationships, assisting with social media and fundraising. Also organising staff and capacity planning and helping to run the day to day logistics of this growing concern.
For the right applicant we can assist with costs or a per diem allowance
Please email us initially at contact@thelavaproject.org and we will set up a video call to discuss further.
