WAFA is looking for a coordinator for research and applications.

You will coordinate, with the management team and program office, the team who works with applications, preparing the application forms, taking care of entries, checking and validating them and ranking entries to be given to the selection committee. They also work with preparing applicant’s stories and profiles to be published on our web and featured at our Award Event.

The better we can spread the stories of the applicants, the more we can influence, via social media, people to understand that the solution to a sustainable and secure life on Earth is within our grasp.

At the end of each round of Awards, the R&A team will do a follow-up, to see how past applicants are doing, to lift up their progress and to gather learnings, both about the sustainable provision of Water, Air and Food security, but also about how WAFA can be better.


  • Work with Program Office to clarify criteria and activities.
  • Make sure the system is prepared to receive entries.
  • Divide up work among the team who process entries.
  • Set up team schedules to interview entrants and gather material from them.
  • Run regular team meetings to plan work and follow up.
  • Coordinate with selection committee head to plan and support selection process.
  • Coordinate and manage the annual follow-up.


  • Experience of coordinating small team of up to nine volunteers (or willing to learn, supported by the program office.)
  • Passion for environmentally friendly solutions to the earth’s challenges.
  • Commitment to teamwork and consensus decision.
  • Comfortable to work in a voluntary organization and with a virtual team.
  • Creative, energetic and inherently motivated.
  • Available at least 4-6 hours a week or more if possible.
  • Excellent communication skills (English)
  • Can start within a month any time.


  • Computer with reasonable broadband
  • Preferably a camera and microphone so you can fully participate in online meetings


You will be part of the Program Office team, working in the Google environment. You will work closely with the Program manager.
