hi everyone.

I am the President of a young NGO; organisation of success achievers. The NGO was founded by 6young boys who saw the need to empower today's youth for a better tommorow. They hold semiars and they even own a newsletter which they are planning to convert to a magzine by March.

We recently held a programme at Vetland Senior Grammar School on Wednesday 18th feb 2009. Omo Baba no 1 was the invited guest. He spoke on 'HOW TO AHCIEVE POSITIVE THINGS FROM THE NEGATIVE THINGS OF LIFE'

Although the Organisation is so young that it cannot afford to pay any one at present, we believe that great things start small and that ideas are wealth.

I really appreciate the fact that there are Nigerians who are interested in changing the life of the Nigerian youth. Any interest and passion filled person can contact me on 08069256914 or mail; hollerbhodehedu@yahoo.com for more info or to book a date.

I'm surprised to see the number of people in this thread that showed interest in working for NGO. Though some claimed that is because of the passion and some because of the money, some because of the exposure (though didn't have the time to read all the responses cause of my tight schedule). You are all not far from the truth. But I must tell you this, if you're the type interested only in the monetary aspect, then go far NGO's that are working in HIV/AIDS prevention and management- that's where the money is. This is because since it's discovery in 1980's, there's hasn't been any issue that has received widespread publicity, attention and funding like HIV/AIDS. Thus, Developed countries (US,UK,Canada etc), International Organisations put together billions of dollars every year to fight against the scourge of HIV/AIDS (Global Fund for HIV/AIDS) and a substantial portion of this amount comes to Africa where the cataclysmic impact of the scourge cannot be taken lightly.

Thus we have a lot of International NGO's into HIV/AIDS in Africa. However, the largest funding for HIV/AIDS comes from the coffers of the USG. The have a PEPFAR (US President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief) program that permeates all the nooks and crannies of Nigeria and Africa at large. In Nigeria, most of the big NGO's are funded by this grant. But there are also those International NGO's that are funded by very large orgainsations or very wealthy individuals such as Clinton Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela Foundations etc. On the whole, all these NGO's are international in nature and have a very high standard as they are supervised by USAID and US Center for Disesase Control (CDC) or other int'l orgs.  

Thus I want to disabuse the mind of those people who thought all that's required for you to be in such NGO's is passion. It's beyond that. You have to be a professional to the core to even have a chance of coming close to such organisations. Their standards can only be equated with that of mainstream international NGO's such as World BAnk, UN, US Embassy USAID etc. Thus, for you to be able to work with such NGO's you must be someone who can be able to work in the int'l orgs. mentioned above because you must be able to stand up to your international colleagues that come from different countries. Infact, the interview I attended was conducted by World Bank Professionals on behalf of the NGO. This is to give you an idea of the calibre of employees such NGO's are looking for.

Oh Sorry I have to go, I have a lot of things waiting for my attention. But I must warn you, the workload is something else however, they have a good welfare package for their employees, the exposure they'll give you can only be matched by those working in mainstream int'l orgs. (should have  told that I left an international Oil Co. to join the NGO and I'm now in relaxing Abuja instead of Niger Delta with their militants wahala)

Good luck to you all

In this time of Global Economic depression, were the naira is falling speedily. Many Nigerians are been self employed by participating in paid surveys/google.

That can generate at least $500 monthly. When i first tried this package (online survey package), i did it with the mind of risk taking, now i know it is better to take risk than remain passive.

There are countless genuine ways to make money online. All you need is internet connection.

Working with an NGO or non profit is really interesting and its a process for you to learn so much about the social matters with the context of the community it operates.

I can help you with so much information about what Non profit organizations are looking for while opportunity for job abound.

But first,

forget about what you want to join such organizations to get! Focus on what value you want to add to the organization.

Remember; Working with an NGO means you are ready to be the CHANGE in a particular area of a cause!

Also be ready to be teachable! You dont know you might just start one tomorrow.

I work with SMEFUNDS, a Chicago based non profit focusing on small enterprise investment in Africa.

SMEFUNDS would be starting a pilot project on an Internet based microfinance project in Nigeria this year and have started to receive application from interested Volunteers that might be interested to work with the organization.

Read more about the work and activities of SMEFUNDS via;

http://www.smefunds.com

Best of luck.

hi,i head an ngo that is membership based.my regular job is as a civil servant but my heart is in developmental work,3yrs ago i did some googling about that sector dre are many organizations u can volunteer with that can open doors to paid ngo work.so google ngos in nigeria etc ,goodluck but remember its not easy d latest case i have is of a man who beat up his wife and child and d baby is so badly wounded it looks like torture with all the intestines hanging out.imagine also riding okada for 3 hours with supplies to a village with no infrastructure where u may have to provide training/help in the most barbaric settings and u cant show repulsion.in my humble opinion developmental workers are angels in human form.volunteer in ur communities and c how it goes.pls do not confuse ngo work and working for donor agencies or u will be highly disappointed.

@ omosivie,

to be a programme and fund raising executive is just close to what marketers do in banks and the likes, you would need to make research about whats happening in the world and inline which the visions of your organisation e.g child trafficking or hiv/AIDS in a view of organising programmes that you can use for enlightenment and also source for funds from govt. and corporate bodies to back your programmes.

so alot of research with sufficient statistics and photos, presentations and implementation of your set goals.

tough job girl but very fulfilling.

Hi Everyone,

Just sharing a few tips for those with an interest in working in the not-for-profit sector.

Like I mentioned above its not for profit and we can actually look at terms such as Civil Society Orgns, Local NGOs, International NGOs, UN organizations, Grank makers and so on.

All focus on different issues or similar issues, some work directly with government, some with civil society groups, while some just support programs with grants or technical help.

Reading all the post above, I see that a couple of you have either had some short training during youth service, some actually are working for NGOs, some have worked with young people, some related to HIV and AIDS and so on, there are ofcourse other areas to work in the development sector in Nigeria and its knowing the issues, to go along with your interest will be a step in that direction. Since this is about getting NGO jobs, I will just share information on this.

Where do U get more information about NGO Jobs in Nigeria? I will share some links, you may already know

Journalists Against AIDS E-Forum

www.nigeria-aids.org

UNDP

www.ng.undp.org

ActionAid Nigeria

www.actionaid-nigeria.org

Relief Web Vacancies

www.reliefweb.int/vacancies

UN Jobs

www.unjobs.org

Pambazuka News

www.pambazuka.org

Development Jobs

www.devnetjobs.org

This is to mention but a few.

Other websites, you can also explore the are the websites of WHO, UNESCO, UNICEF, The World Bank, SIDA, CEDPA, CRS, Red Cross, John Snow, British Council, Save the Children UK, VSO, Africare, Pathfinder.

Grank makers such as Ford Foundation, Macarthur Foundation, Packard Foundation, DFID, USAID, SIDA, CIDA, NORAD, EU and so on also have vacancies now and then.

A quick search using Google, will give you links to there website.

I hope we can generate interest on how to get these jobs another time

Cheers.

@ Omosivie,

Hi. you didn't give much details concerning your job interview in the HIV and AIDS Sector, it will be difficult to give you specific interview tips but I'll try, Now I know the jobs around this could be a Program Admin role, Programme Officer, Advisor,training, youth pograms, it could also be clinical, related to Advocay, treatment, PMCTT, PLHIV, OVC but all have basic skill requirement.

- Knowledge about HIV transmission and AIDS,

- Prevention Methods,

- Use of Basic MsOffice tools,

- report writing,

- process management,

- event management

- Budgetting

- working with grant makers

- knowledge of national policies around HIV, AIDS, Treatment etc.

- Grant makers in HIV and AIDS in Nigeria, other Organizations working in this sector.

Just a few of the top of my head. Both so long u have the soft skills required and basic knowledge of PC use and also some industry experience, you will do just fine.

Cheers.
