Do you want to make a difference? Could you be a trustee?
WaterHarvest is a small but growing charity focused on water-harvesting in rural India. For over 30 years, we have been helping marginalised people through different community led solutions including providing underground water tanks for families, irrigation systems for farmers and land regeneration programmes. We are committed to a culture of openness, integrity and professionalism.
We are now looking for trustees to join our board and to help shape our vision for the next 30 years. We aren’t looking for specific experience or skill sets. The most important thing is time, energy and interest in international development.
A trustee would be expected to attend one board meeting and one committee meeting a quarter and also be available at short notice for discussions (via phone if needed). Meetings are held around 10am weekdays in Winchester. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact [email protected]
If you have time to spare and would like to volunteer with us, there are plenty of ways you can do so. Our volunteers are an essential part of our team, so the work you do will help us greatly. Click on the links below to find out more.
WaterHarvest has a long tradition of hosting interns from local institutions who are passionate about the work that we do and can offer unique skills and experience that greatly aids the WaterHarvest team.
Although we can only offer unpaid internships, we are happy to partner with universities/colleges who may be able to offer funding through an internship service/programme, whilst you are working with us.
We are flexible with regards to hours of work and length of internship. We can fit around your studies or even as a named charity when participating in a set volunteering module. We may be able to accept interns over the summer period and can offer roles in a variety of areas that may suit your skills.
Please note that ALL internships are based at our Winchester (UK) office and we do not offer, or sponsor, any international or field-based opportunities.
If you would like to intern with us, please do not hesitate to contact us! Forward us your CV and a letter detailing your relevant skills and experience. Please also include what you would like to achieve in your time with us, your availability (i.e. when you would like to start, what days you are able to work and when etc.) and how this internship fits into any official part of your course.
We look forward to hearing from you!
