One of the objects of STEWARD-ORG is to bring together individuals, especially young women from all walks of life and diverse competencies to contribute to the sustainable development of South Sudan. In order to achieve this object, we work with volunteers.
Our volunteers fall under two categories namely local volunteers (and interns) and international volunteers. The time length for local interns is usually 12 months. However, this can be extended, depending on the interests of the two parties (the volunteer and employer). The duration of contract for international volunteers is usually two years, but also subject to extension depending on the need for the continuance demand for such skills and knowledge as required by the organization.
General rules for volunteers
All local volunteers are expected to be fresh graduates from higher institutions of learning, including universities. The organization provides opportunities for such graduates to have practical experience in their professional areas.
We provide meals and transport expenses for all our local volunteers, which is paid in arrears by the end of the month based on market rate. Local volunteers are expected to be residents of the areas and expected to provide their own accommodation.
International volunteers are expected to be experienced persons with specialized expertise, relevant to organization program (please refer to the section program on this website). However, there will be consideration for non-African young graduates who want to experience African ways of life.
International volunteers working from their countries of origin; we give priorities for international volunteers who are interested in working with us from their countries of origin as fund raisers. Provisions will also made for such volunteers to travel to South Sudan for the production of documentaries to facilitate fund raising.
We provide modest accommodation for all our international volunteers who are based in our field locations outside Juba. This is usually in the form of a tent or tukul (locally constructed huts using local materials. We also provide basic local food in sufficient quantities.
Interested persons who want to work with us as volunteers can submit their application throughout the year. However, selections are made three times a year, March, July and November. At times, call for applications are also made whenever the demand arises. Please check the section on careers and tenders of the website.
