We are developing a series of small projects to aid fund raising for HEAL UK. All money goes to support a children's village for orphaned and disadvantaged children. We are wanting to develop some innovative ideas in this area.

What will you be doing?

To work as part of the team with program development. Amongst other things we are developing a number of small games. We are looking to produce a series of small games which would be relevant in this Covid era. We are looking at simple traditional games which would be played involving grand parents and grand children at a distance.


in doing this we would be seeking to:

  • Provide stimulation for senior people and children at a challenge time.
  • Aid communication for isolated people.
  • raise funds for a children's charity in India (at such times as this conventional way of fundraising are much reduced and we are looking to find new ways of bridging the gap.)

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a capable programmer who is proficient in JavaScript.

Additional skills that would be good but not essential are:

  • php or python
  • Mysql
  • HTML & CSS

It is also important that the individual is can both work alone and as part of the team. I envisage the person will both assist others with projects and take on small projects of their own.

We have an account on an Ionos shared server where we host both our live and test accounts. So we are looking for a reliable trust worthy person who acts in a responsible way

What difference will you make?

You will be adding to a small dedicated team. You will be enhancing the skills in that team allowing it to be more creative and tackle the ongoing problems in a more creative way.

What's in it for the volunteer?

This role gives the opportunity to work in a creative and intellectually stimulating  way. It will enable you to get to know a variety of people in the UK and India who we are sure you will enjoy working with.

It will give you the satisfaction that you did not just stand by: Instead you will know that you did something of substance and helped some people less fortunate than yourself.

This work will provide a highly visible instance that would enhance anyone's CV.
