Social Impact Project for Strategic Marketing Experteer
How This Works
In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.
Project Description and Impact
Our company manufactures and distributes high quality, natural and organic bath and beauty shea butter products for health-conscious families, professionals and the hospitality industry (echo lodges) in Uganda and potentially the African, US and EU export markets. Core to the company’s profitability and value chain is the generation of resilient incomes and jobs in the community and continuous capacity building for 30 rural, low-income Ugandan households in Lira district – Northern Uganda.
To achieve this we need seeking an Experteer to develop a growth marketing strategy to increase sales within the East African region as well as penetrate the global market
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:
Our culture and traditions
Our business journey and how we make our products and visit the places where the shea trees grow and interact with the communities
The Experteer will have a private room within the home of one of our staff.
Meals will be shared with with staff during work hours. Meals are largely locally dishes but will be planned with the Experteer's dietary needs in mind.
We'll help support local travel to tourist sites within the country - on a cost-sharing basis
Immersion into the cultures and traditions of the country - on a sharing
This project accepts virtual experteers.
