Event description

Description

World Renew's international disaster response team is holding a workshop about how to volunteer as an International Relief Manager and help those affected by disasters around the world.

International Relief Managers (IRMs) are trained and highly experienced volunteers that are available to respond quickly when support is needed for disaster response work. They provide management expertise for projects in a cross-cultural setting, typically serving for several months at a time, and help manage complex project logistics.

In the last year, IRMs have helped to set-up responses to natural disasters, like Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, helped to develop partner capacity in Uganda and Kenya, and managed the distribution of food assistance to 31,500 people in Zambia. IRMs are currently in Bangladesh coordinating a project to help Rohingya refugees fleeing persecution in Myanmar, and supporting a partner in Madagascar to implement a food assistance project. Each year, IRMs provide crucial management support to multi-million dollar projects.
