Bondh E Shams Application Portal
You may apply for either one of the following two programs with us:
1. Sustainability Ambassadors
Our exclusive Sustainability Ambassadorship program reflects our Founder's firm belief that Bondh E Shams (BES) is more than a charity, it is a global platform meant to unlock the potential of our youth.
Each selected Ambassador serves as the face of our work and will help advocate for a safer, more sustainable world where clean water is no longer a luxury, but a right afforded to every single person. Each Ambassador will be empowered to advocate in their own style, working within the Foundational Principles set out by our Management Team.
Each will be assigned a "Sponsor" from among the Management Team (that includes our Founder, President and Secretaries) who will help you learn the ropes and unlock your potential within our team.
2. The 2018 Volunteer Program
Applications for Volunteers are open. Please choose one or more of the below sub-teams.
Volunteer Team Subgroups:
Our 100+ volunteers truly make the world go round for us. You will be working closely with other volunteers, and reporting to the sub-team lead. You will also have a chance to hear directly from senior leadership, including the Management Team.
Logistics (Field work): The logistics team tackles the hands-on pump installation details, including location scouting, sourcing equipment, water sampling, community outreach, and installation management.
Finance and Fundraising: The team’s fundraising activities include developing pitch materials, reaches out to potential donors, establishes corporate social responsibility partnerships, and organizes fundraising events. Finance activities including managing account and donation records, reimbursing volunteers for out of pocket expenses, and coordinating financial details with the core and logistics teams.
Social Media Content (SMC): Social Media Content volunteers take photos/video on site visits, collect information from across the organization for sharing with the public, and brainstorm and develop content for our different social media platforms.
Impact Assessment: The Impact assessment team develops scientific methodologies for demonstrating the health, education, and economic impact of the water pumps, as well as studying the water quality, continuity, and other factors. They conduct field visits for data collection, analyze the results, and share out findings.
