We are looking for a volunteer to help us copy edit a Community Leaders Baseline Report.
Ideally, we prefer to have the language simplified and to have the copy cut down to make the books shorter. Selected volunteers will be required to:
-Ensure compliance with British orthography throughout the copy.
-Rephrase sentences for simplification.
-Correct spelling errors.
This project are important because as an organisation, we are always generating information that other organisations and individuals use as referable resources. We just require the manpower to help us achieve this goal because we are currently a small team.
Nurturing a generation of African women leaders.
We invest talented young women from poor backgrounds to become transformative leaders by providing:
Direct financial assistance: This assistance includes comprehensive scholarships enabling brilliant but poor girls access to the top high schools they have qualified for but cannot afford to attend. We also provide seed funding and stipends to allow young women from marginalized communities to grow their social change projects to scale and sustainability.
Personalized and group mentoring: Akili Dada mentors are dedicated women committed to blazing the trail and supporting their younger sisters’ journeys to success. We are always looking for women willing to give of their time and share their experiences by mentoring our dadas.
Rigorous Leadership Skills Training: Our curriculum is based on a service learning pedagogy where young women learn how to lead by designing and driving social change projects in their marginalized home communities. Leadership Academies have emerged a favorite among our dadas.
