Training on communication tools

Training on communication tools

The volunteer will be in charge of designing and implementing a training on simple communication tools IADC and HA’s team.



In the Ratanakiri province in Cambodia, support to indigenous communities living in forestry areas is limited.
People for Agriculture Development in Cambodia (IADC) and Highlanders Association (HA) are two indigenous local associations working in Ratanakiri Province to support and empower indigenous communities, so that they can protect their land, natural resources, identity, and rights.
These two organizations have common capacity-building goals.

The teams of IADC and HA want to improve their organizations’ visibility for potential donors to maintain and develop their projects. At the moment they don’t have dedicated or trained human resources to work on certain topics such as communication and need training on communication tools the teams could easily manage on a daily basis (for example, how to develop and update a website, etc.)
Recourse to the support of Planète Urgence volunteers is important because IADC and HA do not have the internal skills for this mission, or the financial means to pay a trainer.

Intervention attendue du volontaire

The volunteer intervention must cover those topics:
o How to manage the social media (Facebook, Telegram, Signal)
o How to use e-mails (Outlook/Gmail – some donors are concerned about the ways to exchange information depending and the team is not use to e-mails as they use Telegram most of the time).
o How to better design and manage/update the existing website of HA.
o How to design, manage/update a website for IADC.
Other topics that might be covered:
o How to simply produce a video: HA is producing very little video because the staff don’t know how to produce video.
