Mission and objectives

UNITAR Division of Prosperity offers world-class learning and knowledge sharing services to present and future change-makers from developing countries, particularly youth and women, that are designed to shape an inclusive, sustainable and prosperous world.We train developing countries, particularly those facing socio-economic challenges including LDCs, LLCDs, SIDs and conflict/post conflict countries, and marginalized communities, including women and youth, with the skills for sustainable prosperity.Our programmes strive to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs, prioritizing the agenda’s goal to reach the furthest behind first to ensure no one is left behind. We offer evidenced-based learning services using cutting edge methodologies and technologies adaptable to the needs of the regions and individuals we serve.With our headquarters in Hiroshima, peacebuilding is central to our work.


The UNITAR Division for Prosperity is launching new training programmes, reaching out to more people who need learning opportunities for their communities and countries. Each participant in our training programmes has different background and history; thus, publishing each participants' story will make a positive impact on future participants. Support by motivated Online Volunteers will help the Division better provide success stories and encourage future participants.

Task description

The UNITAR Division for Prosperity is looking for support from motivated Online Volunteers with previous experience in journalistic writing. Specifically, Online Volunteers are asked to support us with the writing of a participant story based on written reports and/or interviewed materials.

While the basic information and interviewed materials will be provided, Online Volunteers are expected to conduct preparatory research about the background information such as the current situations of the countries/areas where our participants are in/from, and relevant topics in the fields of the programmes.
