Are you passionate about driving a global understanding of sustainability in agriculture and food, especially in the poorest countries?
COSA began with a handful of volunteers committed to finding globally comparable metrics for understanding sustainability in agriculture. Today, as a nonprofit organization operating at the forefront of sustainability, COSA thrives on the gift of skilled volunteers to work together in the virtual space with us in creating a better world. Interested?
Bahiya Thompson knows that even when you have well-established skills, you can still grow by applying them in new ways. That’s why, with 20 years’ experience in accounts receivables and business operations mostly in healthcare and education, she reached out to COSA to volunteer.
“Volunteering allows me the opportunity to help COSA while I learn new skills, make use of the ones I already have, and network for my career. Performing operations and accounting tasks remotely has been something I’ve been interested in for a long time and working with COSA has allowed me the opportunity to do just that.”
In the process, Bahiya says that she’s gained knowledge about sustainability efforts. “You can better understand farmers and their communities when you can identify risk factors, and assist them in becoming resilient in changing times.”
Thank you, Bahiya!
