Intern (Office and Finance)
About Voices GY
Voices GY is a registered Guyanese non-profit organisation, active since April 2018. Our mission is to strengthen social cohesion, cultural integration and human rights in the country through targeted projects and partnerships. As an organisation, we are founded on a community-based approach towards a more cohesive and inclusive Guyana. Previous projects have included English tuition for migrants and refugees; support through training and grants to migrant entrepreneurs; regional needs assessments on education and social integration; mental health support; social cohesion events; and multimedia productions on minority rights and cultures.
In Voices GY’s first three years as an organisation, we have consistently innovated with online and remote programmes to provide multiple forms of assistance to refugees and migrants. These programmes have become increasingly important with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have resulted in an increase in the quantity and relevance of our programmes.
Voices GY currently undertake a number of projects with a range of partners from the United Nations, the diplomatic core, International NGOs and private companies based in Guyana and abroad. In turn, the organisation has grown from a small grassroots organisation to an established NGO with almost 40 staff and volunteers in our networks.
