Now we need assistance expanding our expertise in housing in South Asia and beyond. 

Our advisory board meets twice per year, where we outline our current progress and what we need to do to keep our work moving forward.

Nivas is seeking a new volunteer board member to add to our all-volunteer Management Board of Directors. We partner with underserved international communities to assist them in achieving their goals toward good health, safety, education and progress. It is our mission is to support one major project per year with funding, planning, design and volunteer assistance (where applicable) to provide impoverished and distressed communities with safe/healthy housing and access to important resources.  We are currently assisting multiple villages in rural Nepal to rebuild 100 homes post-earthquake. So far with our small group of directors we’ve been able to achieve great success on the ground in Nepal. Now we have room to expand our reach even further and we need assistance promoting and supporting the work that we do. 

Our Management Board meets once per quarter, where we outline our current progress and what we need to do to keep our work moving forward. We don’t have a large volunteer base, so much of the work is achieved by our board members or acting chairs that the board appoints. Each board member commits to approximately 8 volunteer hours per month and a bit more during special circumstances (events, grant deadlines, etc). This commitment includes participation in one sub-committee. We are seeking an individual with a combination of the following qualifications: a love for Nepal, South Asia, or equitable access to housing; collaborative attitude; passion for fundraising; expertise in marketing, accounting, graphic design, or other highly useful skill; willingness to participate.
