Volunteer Photo Database

Solidaridad is a development organization working on making international supply chains more sustainable. Our goal is to ensure that farmers and workers in developing countries have a better economic perspective and that less damage is done to the environment. We believe in a world where production and consumption are sufficiently in balance with each other, providing everyone with enough food to eat. And we believe that this can be done with respect for each other, the planet, and the next generations. For more information, please see our Dutch and international websites: www.solidaridad.nl and www.solidaridadnetwork.org. 


In the course of our projects and activities worldwide, we collect a lot of visual material. We receive photos of farmers on cocoa or cotton fields, workers in mines and leather tanneries, as well as pictures from events and campaigns from our various regional offices. To make sure that these photos are used correctly in the communication about our work, it is important that these visuals are accompanied by the correct information before they are stored in our photo database in Google Photos. At the moment, we have accumulated so much visual material which requires processing, that we need you to help us with tagging and saving these photos!


We are looking for somebody who possesses a good level of English, has an affinity with communication and is enthusiastic to help us with maintaining the photo database for 6 months. Somebody who would like to work on our photo database in Google Photos at least one day per week (Wednesday would be preferred) at our office in Utrecht. More specifically, this would entail downloading series of photos, requesting the author of the photos to provide the missing information, providing the photos with tags (date, place, photographer, key words), and uploading them in Google Photos. We will be happy to explain our work process to you and guide you whenever needed. 


  • An insight into our diverse work - from the field to the consumer - through our photo database 
  • The opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable world
  • A foot in the door in the development cooperation sector
  • A pleasant working environment in our recently renovated office in Utrecht
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses 

Are you interested in helping Solidaridad with sorting out our photo database? Then please write us an email with your motivation and resume in English to hr@solidaridad.nl and state "Application: Volunteer Photo Database" in the subject header. The closing date for this vacancy is 20th of November 2019.
Questions can be addressed to jaimi.nieli@solidaridadnetwork.org or by phone to Jaimi Nieli, Communications. (+31 (0)30 272 03 13)
