    Default Humanitarian and Non-profit orgs and ENFPs

    How many ENFPs work in a humanitarian organization or a non-profit? I am working with in the Middle East and love it. After reevaluating it a little I think ENFPs have are a great MBTI type to work in these types of organizations. Id love to hear peoples thoughts.

    I'm not and I'm not particularly interested, although if they pay good and I can work in a strange new country, I would certainly not say no.

    That's exactly what I want to do.

    What are your responsibilities?

    I prefer independent work and can't stand any kind of office/hierarchy drama.

    I am currently working on an independent project about Palestinian refugees, however I work with the humanitarian organizations in the area.

    Their responsibilities are VERY varied. Expect to do a lot of different stuff. They work with so many different people and projects. You have to be extremely flexible. One day you could be doing boring paperwork, the next giving out food to the poor, and the next investigating a human rights violation. Its a lot of hard work but the people who do it love it.

    You have to be patient, flexible, and hard skinned. The areas they work with arent nice.

    I work for the fundraising of the World Wildlife Fund atm

    It's in Belgium, my own country and the pay sucks, but I've always loved this organisation and its' the first job I actually feel inspired by and good at (convincing others to do the right thing ). Unfortunately it is only part-time so I dunno how long I'll do it.

    Sounds fun, but I don't think I'd be of any help, I make a pretty terrible employee.

    I work for a non profit and the pay is great compared to the for profit jobs I've had.

    That's interesting. Tell us more, please~!
    If the is project "about Palestinian refugees," why does it also provide the other services you just mentioned?
    What is the organization's mission, specifically? I guess that's what I'd like know.

    The project itself doesnt directly help them. Its a documentary about their current situation in Jordan and the West Bank. The biggest way it helps them is through telling their story and showing people how they live.

    However because of this project i have been able to work with a few organizations in the West Bank, including the UNRWA and a couple others I dont know if Im allowed to mention. Through volunteering and doing freelance work with them I have realized my personality fits within how they work very well. With these organizations I have helped directly through things like giving aid, food and water, digging wells, escorting school children (they can sometimes be attacked by extremist), as well as some other things.

    Its been great.
