Social Impact Project for B2B Strategy Expert to Expand Access to Mental Health Services in Kenya
Project Description and Impact
We are a digital mental health platform connecting people with therapists across Kenya. Since the launch of our chatbot in 2019, we have been providing therapy services both directly to consumers (B2C) and as an employee benefit (B2B).
We're currently seeking a Strategy Fellow to help us with our B2B expansion strategy.
Currently, there are fewer than 100 psychiatrists across the whole of Kenya, so there is a huge gap of service provision for not only people with diagnosed mental health conditions but also people who want to keep their mental health in check with regular therapy. Supporting with the development of this strategy will enable us to reach people who currently don't have the opportunity to access mental health support because services are costly and out of reach for many.
In this role, you will work directly with our team and B2B clients to identify areas of improvement. With an eye on the team’s key metrics, you will help lead the experimentation and implementation of ideas to improve our services, which will allow us to reach thousands of people seeking support with their mental health across Kenya.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
Hands-on experience with a social enterprise that is iterating and growing every day
Insight into the healthcare sector and social enterprise space in Kenya
Insight into how technology is changing East Africa
We will support you to find accommodation in the area, likely either a room in a shared apartment or a studio apartment depending on your preferences.
We will provide a monthly stipend to go towards your living costs.
We're based in a co-working space, so you'll be immediately plugged into the social enterprise scene in Nairobi, and the social scene that goes along with it. Nairobi is a fantastic, vibrant city and we'd love to show you around.
If you're interested in learning some Swahili we can introduce you to a teacher.
