Travel Writer/Researcher Wanted
The 4africa Foundation is looking for one experienced traveller to join our research team. Our goal is to publish cutting-edge travel guides (first online, then printed) of which full profit (100%!) will be donated to conservation projects in Africa. Although we are a start-up venture, we have over the past year formed a small board of directors and enlisted the help of dozens of volunteers who are helping make our dreams come to fruition. While we can't guarantee fame and fortune, we have secured enoughed funding to provide a 1200 US$ monthly stipend to one adventurous soul, for a minimum commitment of six months. As guide book editor, I will be based in Morocco, working closely with our writer who will start field research in January 2007.
Requirements: Candidates must have extensive backpacking experience in developing countries (preferably in Africa), be adventurous, have excellent writing ability and enthusiasm for Africa. A background in NGO work is a bonus but a keen interest in helping developing countries is all that is necessary. Candidates must be native English speakers, have exceptional organizational skills, be able to work independently, and conduct thorough and detailed research with an element of perfectionism.
It is considered a bonus if candidates have professional writing experience and basic journalism skills, speak Arabic or French, are great photographers, or have world-wide travel experience so that ratings can be compared on both a local and global scale.
We invite you to take advantage of this unique and fantastic opportunity to explore Africa while helping fund conservation projects. Please forward enquiries and resumes to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
