Help the non-profit international film project ‘PEACE ONE DAY’ modify their existing UK education resource pack for Afghanistan’s secondary level schools.
Peace One Day was launched in 1999 by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. POD’s primary objective was achieved in 2001 when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted a General Assembly resolution establishing the first ever day of global ceasefire and non-violence, fixed as 21 September annually.
Since that time POD has worked to inform the world’s people of the Day’s existence. On 21 September 2007, 100 million people were involved in marking Peace Day around the world. In Afghanistan on 21 September 2007 there were 82 separate initiatives, including many life-saving activities by UN agencies and civil society groups.
In 2006 POD created a Citizenship Resource Pack, now in 91% of UK secondary schools. POD now have the opportunity to adapt this resource pack for secondary level schools in Afghanistan and are looking for an Afghani teacher to support this process.
The applicant must speak fluent English, have a good working knowledge of the Afghanistan education system and be able to advise POD on culturally accepted norms in Afghanistan. This is not translation work. The aim is to produce an English language version ready for translation.
The work will take place in London, probably beginning in February 2008 for an estimated 3 months on a full time basis. The fee will be in line with the current daily rate for UK state sector supply teaching.
Peace One Day is a non-profit organisation, impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion, corporation or religious creed.
