  6. Researcher/Admin

Example activities:

  • Represent Indigo at least one event about your own volunteer experience OR Seek out 3 contacts in your network that will invite Indigo to speak at an event.

  • Connect Indigo to organisations/people/businesses.

Supporting in emergencies

It’s often difficult to predict what may happen in the field in which we operate. In the last couple of years there have been wars erupting, fires breaking out in camps and project buildings, violence and unrest in the areas our partners operate in,  and projects  closing down. Therefore, we often need emergency admin support. If you have spare time and would be happy to step up and support when Indigo responds to emergencies we would love to hear from you. Please visit the contact section to find out who to contact if you are interested in supporting in this capacity.
