Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Our organization is looking for a fundraising expert to help in fundraising for building classrooms and a dispensary healthcare facility to be implemented at Enjoro Maasai Village located in Arusha region in Tanzania.  Due to lack of adequate classrooms pupils access to quality education is hampered. Also, lack of  access to healthcare facility affects health of the whole village. 

Lack of healthcare service adversely affects health and dignity of more than 2,300 villagers especially the lives of more than 1,000 women and children. Due to lack of healthcare service within the village, children have lost lives, women have given birth on the road or at home under unsanitary condition and have suffered from pregnancy and birth-related complications. Moreover, the already poor families spend a lot of money in search for healthcare located far away about 45 kilometers outside their village. In Tanzania, almost 23 women die every day from birth-related complications or nearly one woman in every hour. Building a dispensary facility will help to ensure sustainable access to healthcare facility for mothers, children and an entire village. 

We have some raw videos and photos  for the projects and so the Experteer is expected to join our team in grant proposal writing and fundraising campaign. This work requires good fundraising skills, computer skills ability, strong social media and story writing skills. One should expect to spend time both in the office and in the field.

DELIVERABLES

The Experteer will be expected to join our team in resource mobilization to raise funds for the classrooms and a dispensary facility.   We will know that the Experteer project is complete once we have the required funds for the dispensary and the classrooms.
