Writing & PR Volunteer Opportunities in Africa

Writing & PR


The success of Global Mamas very much depends on our ability to convey the impact of our work through personal stories. There are many ways in which we could put your writing skills to use:

  • External PR - Write special interest stories on our Mamas and the work of Global Mamas for submission to external publications and websites.
  • Social Media - Develop campaigns for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other platforms.
  • Meet the Women – Interview our Global Mamas and craft compelling stories about their lives, what they do with Global Mamas, and how working with Global Mamas has impacted their lives and their families.
  • Annual Report – Develop stories that capture & describe the work that we have done over the past year.
  • Global Mamas Blog – Generate creative ideas and write stories about our Mamas, our Volunteers and Interns, and our staff. It is also great to have stories about life in Ghana and how it differs from what you know.

"Sitting under Gina's mango tree waiting for our batik to dry in the sun was one of my most memorable experiences. The breeze picked up, a perfectly ripe mango fell at our feet and even Gina, who had spent her Saturday working hard, had to admit her backyard was a slice of paradise."
