Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has heard and has some info on this institution. They had a job advert out recently and seem a good place to work.

I did some research on them and it didn't look like a scam to me. The guy who's supposedly running the show has a fair bit of an online presence.

Why do you think it's a scam?

Scot47, I appreciate your caution, but you should research a place before writing it off. This organization may very well be a scam (and their strange name and above average pay initially made me suspicious), but they certainly weren't asking for money. I applied and didn't hear back.

There is an article on the United Nations' website about the organization and its work. Additionally, the manager of the program has a detailed blog about his life in Sudan as well as a couchsurfing account with lots of positive reviews attesting to his personal 'trustworthyness.'
