The mission of ETIV do Brasil is to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil, with a deep focus on youth development. ETIV is located in the beautiful fishing and surfing town of Itacare, on the coast of Bahia, Brazil. Volunteers and Interns have the opportunity to live in our shared volunteer house that overlooks the Contas River, in the Passagem neighborhood of Itacare.


Our program

ETIV do Brasil is looking for a Women’s Empowerment Coordinator who will actually take the lead on helping us build and manage a new women’s empowerment project from the ground up. The Coordinator will be working with the support of the Director and/or the Operations Manager, and will receive ongoing supervision and training.

Most likely, the women will be interested in participating in training and skill building activities that will help them earn more money so that they can provide a better living standard for themselves and their families. This may include anything that truly interests them, from arts and crafts like greeting cards, to sewing and creating candles, purses or bags. In addition, it would be amazing if we could connect the women more closely with our environmental work, and we would love to work with the women to help them create natural products or healthy organic food. This could include things like: natural candles, soaps or cleaning supplies to growing organic lettuces, making natural yogurt, coconut oil or anything else the women might be interested in. We want to be open to support the interests and passions of both the women and our volunteers, but we must also be environmentally sustainable and ensure that all the projects we support are also eco-friendly. For example, it would also be fantastic to make profitable products out of reused or natural and sustainable materials.

Beyond focusing on activities to help the women become more economically independent, we also want to work with the women to focus on their shared concerns and the community issues they all care about. This way, the women will be able to mobilize themselves to build a force capable of creating greater social justice, equality and positive community change. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue among women in Bahia that often results in death. However, when women are more economically independent and have more support structures in place, they are more likely to leave abusive relationships and can find the support the need through the positive relationships they have built with the other women in our empowerment group. In addition, Bahia is also known as having some of the worst statistics in terms of teenage pregnancy, STD’s including HIV/AIDS, education, health care, drug trafficking and gang involvement. Therefore, there are a host of issues that these women may choose to focus on and improve for their communities, and the possibilities are limitless of women can do when they become trained and empowered to create change.


Main Responsibilities

  • To build positive relationships within the community, mainly by meeting with local women to better understand their stories, hopes and concerns for themselves, their families and their community.

  • To organize regular meetings with the women (at least twice a month) bringing women together who share similar hopes and concerns and are interested and willing to work together towards positive change.

  • To document the names of everyone you meet with and their hopes and concerns

  • To take attendance at all meeting and document themes, agendas, strategies, best practices and challenges.

  • To help the women focus on things they can do to positively impact their lives and that of their families and the community, while it is imperative that we help them create goals that are actually obtainable or winnable

  • To organize a local fundraiser event to improve the budget for the women’s empowerment work

  • To apply for at least one grant for the women’s empowerment project

  • To support any other volunteers interested in getting involved in the project

  • To manage and lead our women’s empowerment program with support from ETIV staff

  • To create a women’s empowerment manual for incoming volunteers and to keep our project description updated on our website, especially prior to leaving the position


Requirements

  • Coordinators must work at least 25 hours per week

  • Intermediate to Advanced Portuguese

  • 3 months minimum and 4 to 6-month time commitment preferred for all coordinators (however we do welcome applications for Women’s Empowerment volunteers/interns that can only stay 1-3 months)

  • Strong leadership, social and organizational skills

  • Patience, flexibility and punctuality

Tagesablauf

Most work goes from 9am to 1pm Mondays through Fridays, although schedules can be very flexible.

Volunteers can also add Capoeira Classes or Portuguese Classes, with our local professors, to their schedule.  And of course, one of the wonderful advantages of a surfing town, it is the possibility of ending the day in one of the beautiful beaches of Itacaré or with  a nice dinner in one of the local restaurants with live music.
