BRIEF DESCRIPTION:We're looking for a volunteer like you to support our partner Fundacion Activos Culturales Afro and the local administration in Bahia Solano to strengthen their project development and management skills to build better and more sustainable community and eco-tourism initiatives.
Bahia Solano is in one of the most biodiverse departments of Colombia, Choco, which is prioritized in the government's post-conflict development plans and is receiving greater numbers of tourists every day. To better capitalize on the attention, tourism and funding flowing to the department of Choco, it is critical that the community has the skills required to develop and manage their own projects and initiatives, that benefit and are aligned with the community’s needs, culture and vision of development.
The objective of the placement is to build the local governments' capacity to develop projects and build strong programs for community development that are based around tourism. Ideally, by the end of the placement, the local administration will be able to develop strong concept notes, understand the value of stakeholder analysis and involvement, log frames and other components of a project proposal.
