Frequently Asked Questions by Prospective Volunteers:

How big is The Pixel Project team?

We are currently a 25-person team (inclusive of Women’s Aid Organisation and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s assigned teams) and are taking on more volunteers as we go along.

Interested in joining the project? We definitely could use more helping hands!

What is it like being part of The Pixel Project team?

We are a real virtual team which means that you’ll be working with people you only know via email, chat and Skype.

You’ll usually be working on your own and to your convenience so long as it jives with the deadlines set.

Other than that, we’re a good-natured team working for a common cause while laughing together in the face of adversity – all for the cause!

I live in [insert far-flung village nobody has ever heard of] – can I still join the team?

Yes you can – our team is a virtual team and our primary workspace and gathering space is online. Even our calls are all via Skype!

So long as you have daily access to a reliable internet service, you’ll be right at home with us.

After all, our award-winning graphic designer is in Brisbane, Australia, our lawyers are in Los Angeles, California, USA, our web designers are in Penang, Malaysia and our software engineering team is split between Oxford, UK and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Have internet (and a few hours per week), will volunteer – that’s what we say!

I don’t live in the USA or Malaysia. Why should I join The Pixel Project team?

Well, why not?

Many of our team members live outside USA and Malaysia and virtually all of our team members and partners have come on board because they strongly believe that no woman should face violence, EVER.

In other words, we all strongly believe in the mission of this campaign and are our doing our bit to put our money where our mouth is.

Many of our team members have also come on board because they believe in the power of Web 2.0 to change things and are committed to working together to take fund-and-awareness raising for the cause into the 21st century.

We are no longer just citizens of a particular country – Web 2.0 has made us all global citizens and with 1 in 3 women worldwide experiencing some form of gender-based violence in her lifetime, it’s time to tackle the cause on a global scale.

How can I contribute to the team?

The first thing we would ask you is: “What do you think your strong points are?”

This is because we are big believers of matching people to the roles which best suit their skills and interests.

Otherwise, we would fit you into the one-size-fits-all Admin team where you’ll help with virtually everything from research to drafting letters to making the calls to get the support we need.

For the complete list of roles and teams still available to join, download it from the sidebar (or if you can’t find it, email the team at team@thepixelproject.net)

One very important thing we’d like all potential volunteers to note is that you must be very honest with the amount of time you can spare per week to work on the project.

This will help us accommodate your needs and synchronise it better with the project’s needs.
