|We welcome inquiries from individuals who are willing to commit time and talent to specific projects. These volunteers, or "e-volunteers," may be located anywhere. Experience in humanitarian work is not required - only an interest in how technology can help people!
The HumaniNet volunteer team seeks practical, available, and affordable solutions in technology. In humanitarian organizations, the term "IT" is replaced with "ICT," or information and communications technologies.
Currently, we are looking for e-volunteers who would
be willing to:
- Working with virtual research teams, help us to identify proven technologies that would be helpful to global humanitarian organizations. Examples of research areas include: satellite communications, wireless and cellular technologies, low power computing, voice over IP (VoIP), solar power and renewable energy, PDA and notebook comparisons, and geographic information systems (GIS) and mapping.
- Help us to monitor the many initiatives, Web sites, and other sources that provide useful information on humanitarian ICT.
- Write articles on topics like those listed above for the HumaniNet Web site.
- Assist individual managers and workers in the field (for example in Asia or Africa ) with their unique questions and needs.
- Administrative assistance
- Help us inform the humanitarian community of our mission and services.
