FUNDING & SPONSORSHIP OFFICER WANTED

Help us fund projects

The reality is money makes the world go round. In order to continue doing what we do we need funding, and we need to help organisations get funding too. We are looking for someone that is great with applications. Perhaps, you are great with job applications or even have direct experience with funding applications, we want to hear from you. Additionally, you will be helping us build relationships with companies interested in partnering with us (this could by donating money or donating resources). You will be directly helping us fund projects at Vemoye and at other African-focused organisations. You will play a key role in increasing the impact these organisations will make which will lead to change on the continent. With your help, organisations can focus on actually getting the job done and changing lives.

What’s in it for you?

 

  • It’s an opportunity to help the African continent by using all this knowledge that you’ve acquired without having to leave the country you reside in. You can make a difference right where you are.

  • It’s an opportunity to broaden your experience. Working with African-focused organisations is a whole new experience and this will add a few more notches to your belt.
