Project Details

Description and Impact

Reality Gives works towards a world where underprivileged communities have equal access to opportunities and resources by providing young people in Dharavi with high quality education and experiences to help them maximize their potential. We are holding classes in English, Computer and Life Skills as well as activities (arts, sports, workshops) for young people and children in our Community Centre. We also invest in teacher training at the Royal City School, a semi-government school where we run classes from kindergarten to 2nd standard.

In the past months, we reviewed our line of action. Consequently, we are looking for an energetic and committed volunteer who is self-motivated and passionate about social change and would be able to convey our vision and help our organization expand its reach through online media.


We are looking for a social media and website enthusiast to assist our Marketing & Fundraising Director in writing and publishing interesting and stimulating content for our different social media (Facebook page, Google +, Twitter, blog). You will also ideally be a dab hand at photography, videos and/or graphic design so our posts can be as interesting and engaging as possible.

Further tasks may include (but not be limited to) assistance in managing our newsletter content and email correspondence. You will also be in charge of reviewing our website in anticipation for proposed content and design changes.

Expected outcomes:

  • Higher engagement of our audience online (fans, donations, etc.)
  • Redefinition of the content mix for each of our platform (social media strategy)
  • Internal policy and training about social media use for staff
  • New website outline
