Country Coordinators have a very important and very exciting role as they are the face of TWAM in Africa. They work directly with our in-country volunteer teams to support groups applying for tools, process their applications and prepare containers for despatch.
It is quite something to see your first container full of life-changing tools leave one of our Refurbishment Centres. It is moving to reach applications and the desperate needs within their communities that churches and groups are trying so hard to meet, and it is inspiring to read the letters of thanks and the stories of lives transformed after the tools have arrived.
The Country Coordinator role would suit somebody who wants to engage on a much deeper and more personal level with the people of Africa and who has the time commitment to take on our work in a whole country.
We currently support DR Congo, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We will be adding other countries such as Rwanda, Burundi and Botswana to the list in the near future.
Working from home, so anywhere in the UK is possible.
This is quite an intense role and would suit someone able to give one or two days a week to their country and willing to respond to emails more regularly when a container is due for despatch or arrival.
