Call for Loop Board Members

Call for Loop Board Members

Loop aims to enable the participation revolution in the humanitarian and development sector.

Our Vision is for People in need around the world to have a say in the services they receive so that the services are more timely, appropriate and of higher quality, thus attracting increased funding.

Our Mission is to enable people to share their feedback in an open, transparent and real time manner so that their voices can be heard, responded to and have an impact on current and/ or future services.

We want to be accountable to affected populations and are establishing a Board to help charter that course.  Can you help us? 

Our board will be made up of five to seven experienced, qualified and visionary leaders from contexts where humanitarian and development services are delivered on a frequent basis.
