Project Details

Description and Impact

Our organization supports health, education and agriculture programs in the Mfangano islands in Kenya.

In 2019 we will begin creating one of a community health facilities and need help with a strategic plan to open serious fund drives across the county and outside the country to get volunteers, well-wishers and donors who can fund the project we are looking for support to develop a strategy on fund-raisers.

To this end we are looking for an experienced HR professional to help (1) recruit on-line fund-raisers  (2) build a strategy that allows us to get funds for our project to enable us to put up a new dispensary for the community in 2019. It would be especially appealing if the candidate has experience in the HR department of large company, but we also value experience with smaller companies or a track-record in start-ups.


After we find the right candidate, this person will work with their supervisor to set up a feasible work plan where we will identify the following results and anticipated deliverables which will be further worked out in the work plan:

  • Develop a hiring strategy
  • Developing a recruitment and selection plan for the building strategy
  • Organizational charts for new clinic

In the long run, if the project succeeds we expect affordable and reliable health services to community members.
