You do not need a foreign degree to work with an INGO what you need is the relevant work experience and qualifications.

It depends on the type of job and specification . Some jobs require strictly require a particular field or course while others might entail first degree because you will be trained.

My advice for those awaiting Youth service , when you are in camp embrace the Unicef peer education training of trainers, it is a wonderful opportunity.

The sky is the limit for such people as u strive to make the world a better place God will make you smile

Re: How Can I Get An NGO Job? by Peegee(m): 6:55pm On Jul 03, 2007
Hi everyone,
This is my first time of posting anything on this site. I am writing because the area of discourse is one in which I major. I am a development worker with one form of NGO experience or the other since 2002. I have found all the postings very interesting but I guess only very few of them have been helpful to that person who is interested in NGO (Development) work. The best way to start is to volunteer. Find an NGO in your localty that has its thematic area(s) relevant to your area(s) of interest. That way you can get within the circle. Once you're in the development worker's circle, try to read, listen and learn. Make contributions where necessary and make friends a lot. Do not just speak anyhow especially if you really do not have anything to say. Attend meetings and other relevant fora such as workshops and conferences when you have the chance.
Don't just quit your job, NGOs do not often pay well unless you've reached a stage whre you have become a resource person consulting for such bodies as UNICEF, WHO, USAID and the others or you intend to work for SFH, ARFH and some of the big players in Nigeria. Try to make sure you have the financial resources to go the long haul until you're ready to lauch out.
I can not tell you everything you need to know but beyond merely getting a postgraduate degree (MPH in my case), these are some of the things you can do to become a Development worker. I hope you will find these tips useful.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Point of correction , Nobody is a victim of HIV and AIDs they are people living with HIV. A victim is someone who is helpless about his/her situation, they is help and hope for people living with HIV and AIDS.
As for your passion, you can volunteer with an NGO that deals with HIV and AIDS and grow with them.
Re: How Can I Get An NGO Job? by lekywhite(m): 10:26am On Jul 04, 2007
Flakky,

well its good as you want to follow your heart, but what im not clear is do you want to startup your own NGO or you want to work with one? whichever the case maybe well you have to be careful about it.

I work with an NGO that basically use IT as tool and are thematic areas are Health, Education, Capacity building and Advocacy, and im also thinking of floating mine soon, if you are thinking along this direction then we could work together.
