Swaziland is Africa's only absolute monarchy, and Global Action (GA) works for greater economic equality and democracy in the country. Global Aktions Swaziland group has, in the past 11 years, worked closely with the democracy movement (Swaziland United Democratic Front) in Swaziland. In addition to project work in Swaziland, we do information work in Denmark - and you can join!

We seek both volunteers who are interested in information and campaign work (including research, article writing, podcast production, etc.) and volunteers with an interest in project work. In Global Action no one stands alone, and so we carry the responsibility in a bunch. Work is done seriously in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.

We are looking for volunteers like:

  • Want to support the fight for democracy and human rights in Africa's last absolute monarchy
  • Can see itself being part of a political solidarity movement
  • Can spend time for regular meetings (about 2-4 times a month at Global Aktions premises in Nørrebro)

You get:

  • Experience with project administration, monitoring and evaluation
  • Experience with fund application and budgeting
  • Experience with starting a new project with partner in Swaziland
  • Experience with information / campaign work
  • Possibility to travel to Swaziland (All expenses related to travel are covered by GA, but work is unpaid)

What is expected of you?

Being an activist in Global Action can be time consuming, but it is enormously rewarding, fun and educational, and there is ample opportunity to gain responsibility and influence.

The Swaziland group is currently quite small, so we hope you will join us! We strive to meet a couple of hours at a time 2-4 times a month (more often during periods of application writing), and then there are continuously smaller tasks that can be done separately / online. It is a definite plus if you have the opportunity and desire to spend time at least one weekly meeting and some hours for reading / small writing assignments or the like every week.

We have no particular expectations for previous experience - the most important thing is that you are interested and motivated to join! In addition, it is important that you take the time to familiarize yourself with our work and are willing to learn. We fully understand that it can be difficult to contribute something for the first time, and we make sure that you get a thorough introduction to the work and the organization.

If you want to be with ....

You can help make a huge difference by supporting brave people who fight for a fairer life for the many Swazi rather than the few. You also support GA, a political organization that fights the exploitation of people by the global elite and the resources of the planet.

Then write a brief motivated application for yourself and why you would like to be part of GA's Swaziland group before June 1. We hold informal conversations on an ongoing basis, where you can hear more about Global Action, Swaziland group and our partner SUDF, and we can hear more about you. We will send you some reading material in preparation for the conversation, and otherwise you are welcome to contact us if you have any questions.

We are looking forward to hear from you!
