Graphic designer to support childhood education in Cambodia

You can start Flexible
Description and Impact
Kindergartens in Cambodia don't have a lot of resources. Teachers often have little to no budget, and at a time when kids are at their peak for learning development, not having the resources to challenge them mentally can have ongoing effects all the way to adulthood. We are working hard to change this.
We are creating a digital library that all teachers in Cambodia will have access to where they can print off books, lesson plans and activities for the kids to better teach the government curriculum. We have started a series of curriculum aligned books using our own characters that will be open source and available free to anyone to use. We currently have a Cambodian Graphic artist working on the books but we would love an experteer to support the graphic designer and create additional artwork required for branded games and activities.
Further to this, we also need support with website layouts and updates for the 2 websites that we manage.
Your work on this project will continue to help Cambodians long after you leave. You will also help to facilitate a social enterprise as we will sell the same materials in English to western countries to help support the charity.
- Over 12 months we have committed to completing 10 books. Depending on your length of stay, you can help us achieve part of all of this goal
- Support web development of 10 games with requested graphics
- Create graphics for 30 activities using the same characters as the books
- Website layout update to better convert visitors.
You will be a creative individual that can work independently and take a lead role in your profession. You will be patient and understanding of cultural differences as well as generous in sharing your knowledge. You will have a strong interest in helping underprivileged children get a headstart in life and a sense of pride in the work that you create.
