Volunteer: Illustration for Somo

About the job

Help Somo bring marketing materials to life with a compelling visual or a custom illustration that conveys the defining characteristics of their organization.

Our Mission
SOMO is the root of a Swahili word meaning “lesson”. We are called SOMO because we all have lessons to learn from each other. Visionary entrepreneurs exist in informal settlements around the world.

SOMO identifies, trains, funds, and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities. We invest in social entrepreneurs and provide the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within. By investing in the right people, we help break the cycle of poverty and help bring long-term stability to urban slum areas.

Fun Fact About Us
We are based across 3 different cities in Kenya and so get experience working with people from many different backgrounds and cultures!
