Hatua Network Grants Officer/Development Fellow Jobs in Kenya

Hatua Network Grants Officer/Development Fellow Jobs in Kenya

Over the past 12 years, Hatua has worked to enable Kenyan youth from low-income families to realize their potential through education, soft skills development and career guidance.

Through experience we have learned what youth need in order to excel: access to quality secondary and tertiary education, mentoring focused on values and character development, resume building experiences while still in school, and connections to professional networks that can help them access career opportunities after graduation.

Hatua Network provides youth with these essentials. We reach youth during the most formative years of their lives and provide support that transforms their future prospects.

We unlock their future potential, from trying to survive with no credentials, no connections and no opportunities, to instead becoming university graduates, ready to work, earn, and contribute to Kenya’s economic growth.

To meet our ambitious and exciting growth goals we have created this new full-time fundraising role focused on building relationships with new international institutional partners, writing grant applications and proposals, and strengthening Hatua’s relationships with existing partners.

Local and international donors have been instrumental to help Hatua Networks grow over the years.

Because of our proven track record we now have the opportunity to seek support from a wealth of international funders who are interested in addressing the challenges youth face in Africa.

You will position Hatua’s programs to donors in ways that resonates with their mission and motivates their engagement and share Hatua’s successes and lessons learnt to strengthen our partnership, elicit continued support and encourage our stakeholders to connect us with new prospective donors.

As our Development Fellow you will join our small, dynamic, and growing fundraising team! This is an ideal role for someone passionate about youth development who has great writing and persuasion skills to bring Hatua’s stories to life on paper in a way that excites potential partners to be part of our work.

You are highly passionate about advancing the social

sector and have a strong interest in education and youth empowerment: You have persuasive communication skills, with an ability to tell stories in a way that influences action.

Very strong writing skills, with the ability to produce drafts that don’t need editing on style or grammar.

The idea of mobilizing resources towards a great cause excites you, and working long hours on your laptop doesn’t drain your energy. You enjoy writing and can write efficiently. **
