What will you be doing?

To move towards a more localised form of international development, we are trying to build fundraising capacity within our team in Rwanda so that they can raise funds to support the projects independently of volunteers in the UK. Therefore, we are seeking someone with experience in grant or corporate fundraising (or other forms of fundraising that can be done from Rwanda) who would be willing to take on this challenge! In addition, we would expect the volunteer to become a trustee of the board of Children of Rwanda UK. What would you be doing? Ideally, the volunteer would help train and then co-line-manage a Fundraising Officer who will be based in Rwanda.  Why is this important? We firmly believe that the decision-making power within an NGO should be held by the community in which the projects are being delivered. We have made tremendous progress towards making our team in Rwanda an independent and self-reliant entity that does not rely on volunteers from the UK. However, for this to be truly meaningful, the Rwandan Team need to be able to independently raise money for the projects they deliver, and so building in-country fundraising capacity is crucial.   

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a motivated and experienced fundraiser who can help train and remotely co-manage a new fundraising professional in Rwanda. The trustee should have experience in grant and corporate fundraising, and be willing to train others in this area.  We are here to give as much support as we can!

What difference will you make?

By helping us achieve this important milestone in our localisation strategy, you will contribute to a hugely important shift towards a more healthy form of international development.
