About NGO Aid Map
NGO Aid Map is an InterAction initiative focused on collecting information on NGOs' work at the project level and making it accessible to donors, NGOs, businesses, governments and the public through an online, interactive mapping tool. The site, which focuses on the work of InterAction members, aims to: increase transparency, facilitate partnerships, improve coordination and help NGOs and other actors make more informed decisions about where to direct their resources. To date, InterAction has launched three sub-sites, focused on Haiti, food security and agriculture globally, and the Horn of Africa. We've collected information from more than 100 organizations on more than 3,600 projects in over 80 countries, and ultimately plan to gather information on our members' work in every sector, in every country.
The primary responsibility of the open data intern will be to assist the mapping team with maintaining and improving data quality and standards for NGO Aid Map. We are planning a significant expansion, and are looking for a smart, motivated individual to help us expand without compromising quality. The internship is a great way of learning about the work of international development and humanitarian NGOs, and getting an inside look at conversations about transparency within the NGO community.
Specific duties include:
The intern will also have an opportunity to attend InterAction and other related, outside events.
We are looking for someone who is willing to commit to an internship from January – May 2013. Interns are expected to work approximately 20 hours a week. The internship is unpaid, but there is a small transportation stipend.
To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with Open Data Intern Application in the subject line by Monday, December 10.
