Internship with Spark Microgrants
In Rwanda, Spark MicroGrants (www.sparkmicrogrants.org) is working with communities to develop and implement their own projects on a range of topics including decreasing HIV stigma, improving access to clean water and improving nutrition. Spark MicroGrants supports community led development through a proposal development process and awarding small grants for the implementation of their project ideas. Spark MicroGrants is now ready to launch an assessment and advocacy effort called Spark Voice. Between June and August 2011 I will carry out preliminary evaluations on the results of each MicroGrant project. I will also help record and promote the stories that communities share on their development. All this will be published on the Spark MicroGrants website (in Spark Voice).
