Children of Tsunami is not a typically donor-funded
or corporate-sponsored media production effort.
True, we are raising funding support
from a variety of sources to cover costs -- television
is an expensive medium!
But we also value and welcome the
donation of skills and in-kind contributions.
TVE Asia Pacific, the originators
and promoters of Children of Tsunami, is a
small but dynamic non-profit organisation based in Colombo,
Sri Lanka, but working across Asia Pacific region. We
often rely on the goodwill and support of many like-minded
individuals and organisations who share its vision and
From April 2005 to early 2006, we
need the following range of skills and expertise from
suitable and willing volunteers:
- Documentation assistance:
to check post-production scripts; prepare progress
reports; produce a variety of other documents. These
are tasks that require the person to be physically
present at TVEAP office.
- Data management support:
to keep track of all sorts of things happening as
part of the 4-country operation that is underway from
February to December 2005 to produce Monthly Video
Reports and other media products. Again, requires
physical presence at TVEAP office.
- Website content maintenance:
to constantly research and suggest new links; produce
journalistically written news reports and updates;
generate new web pages and sustain content management
of this website. We need both writers and web design/maintenance
skills. This work can be done online from anywhere.
- Distribution and marketing:
to produce promotional material; systematically market
the media products to broadcast, educational and civil
society users; readily respond to enquiries that come
in for media products and educational material, etc.
This work may be done both on site or from other locations.
- Fund raising:
In particular we need support with our efforts to
raise additional funding support from bilateral/multi-lateral
donors, grant-making foundations, corporate sponsors
and individuals. Proposal writing, lobbying, networking
and goodwill introductions will all help. This can
be done from wherever you are!
If you would like to donate your time or services, please

TVE Asia Pacific operates in English,
