Economic Development Intern at SKIP in Peru

430719_10150618735367670_431667203_n

The Economic Development Program at SKIP works with families living in poverty to offer financial opportunities to stabalise their income and improve living conditions. We are looking for interns who can commit to a minimum of a month. We are happy to facilitate student placements for course credit and have worked with a number of Universites, Including Penn State and Northeastern.

Since 2003, SKIP has been working with disadvantaged families in an impoverished district of the city of Trujillo, Peru. We are a registered NGO in the US, UK and Peru.

Our holistic program focuses on the educational, economic, emotional and social development of each child and family. It is our aim to foster the capacity of children and families to be the principal agents of change in their own lives.

SKIP is currently seeking volunteers to join its Department of Economic Development (EcoDev).

The Department of Economic Development

The department of Economic Develppment (EcoDev) helps SKIP families create sustainable sources of income and provides them with opportunities to develop their artisanal and business skills to pursue their goals. Its current project portfolio includes:

  • micro-credit program – this issues small loans and business consulting to current or potential business owners;
  • construction program – small loans to improve the living situations of families;
  • artisanal workshops, including jewelry-making, sewing, and weaving;
  • business education workshops, one-on-one consulting;
  • health-related loan programs.

The Position

Under supervision of the EcoDev Coordinator, you will be responsible for a specific project within the department. However, because of the modest size of our team, volunteers contribute to aspects of all the projects within EcoDev.

Additionally, volunteers will assist in the children’s program at SKIP once a week by volunteering a morning/afternoon to work at the school as we feel this helps give additional perspective on the community.

While we ultimately desire our EcoDev Volunteers to speak some level of Spanish, we currently offer a limited amount of spaces for those who do not speak Spanish. However, priority will be given to those who are able to stay longer and are committed to improving their language abilities.

Responsibilities

  • Independently research, organize and manage an EcoDev project that will improve the living conditions of families in El Porvenir. In some cases, the project will need to be continued from a past volunteer rather than independently researched and organized;
  • Participate in the microcredit loans program through office hours and visit houses in the community of El Porvenir;
  • Manage a development portfolio of families/borrowers and be open to understanding their situation and providing solutions;
  • Report to the EcoDev coordinator on a regular and consistent basis;

Volunteer profile

Required:

  • Relevant work or study experience;
  • Commitment of one month at minimum;
  • Ability to pass on competences and knowledge, but also to listen to suggestions;
  • Approachable and friendly demeanor to deal with parents;
  • Ability to work as a team, but also to take initiatives and work in an independent manner;
  • Be ready to exercise patience and show flexibility in living modestly and working with limited resources;
  • Willingness to help with other projects within the EcoDev department when necessary;
  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Willingness to work flexible hours including some weekends.

Desired:

  • Minimum intermediate level of Spanish
  • Experience in economic development, in particular with small businesses;
  • Experience living or working in South America.

The benefits of volunteering with us

In return for your invaluable participation in our volunteering program, SKIP will provide:

  • a thorough induction to the organization, programs, department and specific role
  • structured and relevant training from fully qualified and experienced staff members
  • mentoring and support in the form of regular supervision and staff meetings as well as informal sessions
  • the chance to be a part of a diverse and dedicated team and a welcoming community
  • confirmation of volunteer service

Financial contribution

We do ask volunteers to make a contribution to the charity in return for volunteering. We know it can seem a bit strange to ‘pay to work’ but this is how we fund the charity. Please see our annual report for a breakdown of our budget and spending. 59% of our annual budget currently comes from the volunteer contributions and additional fundraising done by current and ex volunteers.

Accommodation is provided and the cost of this is included in the donation, which ranges from £350 to £125 (US$540 – US$190) per month, depending on the length of stay. Please see the website for more information:http://www.skipperu.org/en/volunteer/contributionfees.

We are happy for volunteers to fundraise the contribution and there is more information about this on the website along with some information about possible grant opportunities.
