I work here as a volunteer Programme Officer for Ethnic Community Development Organisation (ECDO). We now have a website, so you can find out more about ECDO at http://www.ecdo-bd.org
ECDO is a small NGO, with only four full-time staff excluding me, and we run education and health projects for the indigenous people of the region, the vast majority of whom live in small villages in extreme poverty.
As well as VSO (who facilitate my volunteering with ECDO), Oxfam and Action Aid fund two major projects that we implement.
I am helping ECDO build up their external communications, create a strategic plan, develop other fundraising sources, organise a new information management system, develop an advocacy programme, and conduct a major Participatory Rural Appraisal research project in 15 villages, amongst more mundane things such as fixing the printer.
I have just started running a Global Citizenship project with nine teenagers from a local school, which I have set up with a school in London. I will link to the website for that soon.
I also go to a lot of weddings.
If anyone has any questions about my work here as a VSO volunteer, please feel free to post below.
