Help Us Mobilise Communities and Tell Stories this #25May2018 !

ROLE OVERVIEW:

The Online & Offline Mobilisation Volunteer will be facilitating and leveraging various activities to mobilise citizens within his/her region for the Africans Rising between April and May, 2018. 

On the 25th of May, 2017, we connected with over 10 Million individuals online, and the hashtags #AfricansRising and #25May2017 were trending in a number of African countries. We were mentioned in at least 200 local, regional, national and international radio, print, television and online channels. 2000 volunteers, partners, organisations, supporters and individuals organised a total of 300 actions & events in 42 African countries and abroad.

This year, we are working towards an even more successful and wider mobilisation across the continent. A key focus of this mobilisation is to allow our members on the ground and our mobilisation volunteers to create and lead new Africans Rising engagement spaces, eventually leading to a major date to celebrate our common wins for justice, peace and dignity.

This volunteer role helps our work towards the accomplishment of all the #25May events. It will also be trialling a new approach to community mobilisation and has the potential to be replicated into more opportunities as the movement grows.
