Project need

We are publishing a novel that aims to educate Western audiences about Ethiopia's human rights struggle. A volunteer is needed to edit our promo video. The specific tasks required include cutting out some footage, embedding an Amazon button, linking the button to the Amazon sales page and, possibly, inserting a card with some graphics. The volunteer must be able to take the video, now in MP4 format, and convert it into YouTube, Vimeo or whatever format is recommended for the button embed. The volunteer must be able to begin right away and work quickly. We hope the book will raise awareness and generate public support for Ethiopia. If you're interested in making a difference, this project may be for you.

Organization's mission

Free World Associates is a 30-year old unincorporated network of human rights and democracy promotion activists. Our mission is to promote global peace and economic development by helping closed societies become more democratic, transparent and accountable. We are working with Taproot on 3 projects:

1. "Money, Blood and Conscience" is a novel that aims to bring to public attention Ethiopia’s human rights crisis. A for-profit social enterprise, proceeds will support our pro bono democracy promotion work.

2. Operation Conscience is a social impact campaign to raise awareness of genocides committed by the Ethiopian government.

3. World Liberation Radio aims to test if the basic ideas of nonviolence can be taught to oppressed populations around the world by radio. It is fiscally sponsored by the Social Good Fund, Inc., a 501c3.
