The secretariat of the Right to Food Campaign is looking for a new coordinator.
The secretariat has a small office in south Delhi which tries to support the campaign in various ways: maintaining the campaign website, circulating information on the right to food, preparing campaign material (booklets, leaflets, etc.), facilitating campaign events in Delhi, convening meetings of the campaign’s steering group, and, whenever possible, participating in campaign activities around the country.
The secretariat is funded from individual donations in rupees with no strings attached – for further information see the campaign’s website HERE.
The secretariat coordinator (generally working with one or two other volunteers) is expected to coordinate these activities, under the guidance of a small advisory group.
Anyone with good organizational, social and communication skills is welcome to apply.
Fluent knowledge of Hindi and English, website maintenance skills, some training in social sciences, and – most importantly – some prior experience of involvement in the right to food campaign or similar work are all useful but not essential qualifications.
A modest honorarium of Rs 12,000 – 15,000 per month (negotiable) will be arranged for the successful applicant.
Please send in your CV at [email protected] along with a short statement explaining your motivation for applying.
Please also mention when you can join us and the period of time you will be able to stay with the secretariat.
(Our expectation is that the person joins from May 15 and gives a full-time commitment of 1 year at least).
The subject of the mail has to be Application for Coordinator, RTFCS 2015.
The deadline for receiving applications is April 30.
For further details, please feel free to write to [email protected] or contact Dipa Sinha at 9650434777.
