Social Impact Project for Branding & Graphic Design Expert to Empower Refugee Artisans
Project Description and Impact
We are a social enterprise working to empower people affected by conflict and migration by connecting refugee artisans to the global market, ultimately creating new opportunities and financial security. To achieve this, we use a process of co-creation to develop products that combine both traditional skills and modern design elements.
As we grow and seek to increase our impact, we are in need of an a branding expert to help with our overall look, feel and design.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
We use a unique approach to social entrepreneurship (and teach courses on it). In working with us, you will learn this approach to connecting with remote communities and developing projects.
It begins with a focus on the connection with self, the connection with the environment, and the deconstruction of our paradigms before we begin to co-create with communities.
We are confident and optimistic that the selected Experteer will be able to walk away from this experience with a thorough knowledge of working with communities in the social impact sector.
While for now this is a remote opportunity, you are always welcome to visit us on location in the jungles of northern Thailand and be fully immersed in our work and our remote refugee village.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
