News update:
We are in a big need of volunteers from NOW. So if you are ready to use 1-3 months in our plce to marketing our programs , we will be most gratefull!

We are a private school, specialized in preparing and educating volunteers for development projects in Africa and India. The school is situated at 80 Km South of Copenhagen, a small town called Faxe in nice surroundings near the sea.
The school was founded in 1994 and has since then educated students for action in the Southern part of Africa and in India.
At the same place we also run a carehome and a day school for youngsters with special needs.
The school has an absolute no-alcohol, no-drugs policy which also applies to guests :)

The school and its guests have access to a small fitness center, sports hall, music room, art room and table-tennis.
The school is run by us who are here, students and teachers, which means we shop, cook, clean, maintain the buildings and meet challenges together.
This also means, that when you are part of our community for a while, you will be running the school together with us.

Help
We are looking for creative people who will invent all kind of ways to promote the program on the internet. Part of the work is routine like finding email addresses for universities, high schools, youth hostels, libraries etc.
We make all promotion materials for the programs too - such as films and slideshows

The main focus of the work is Online Marketing + promoting the school.
The tasks are to advertise our programs "Fighting with the Poor" and "Climtae Change" all over Europe using social media as Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Forums, websites etc. You will make photos and post them on the schools Facebook together with articles about the daily life here. You will make posters to send out to places where people might want to expose them, for example to universities.
