Online/Phone Research on Universities in East Africa
We are looking for a skilled individual to create a comprehensive database of the characteristics of all current universities in two East African countries: Keyna and Uganda. If the exercise is completed effectively and efficiently, there will likely be significant additional work on this project that will follow. The work will be an important contribution to an innovative social enterprise to transform learning and skills for young people in Africa.
The specific tasks will include:
1. Identifying all current universities in the two countries and entering key information on them into an excel database
2. Gathering data through detailed online research and through phone outreach directly to the institutions
3. Ensuring the database is well presented, free from error, and easily analyzed
Significant experience and efficiency in online research to find difficult information is critical. Ability to problem solve and identify alternative research sources, including effective conversations with relevant individuals is also critical. Strong skills with MS Excel and ability to accurately summarize data are also required. Location is unimportant though East Africa is preferred.
