Our partner in Kampala is in need of critical funding to support their programmes, providing vulnerable refugee children with education and skill building, and we are looking for someone to drive research into new funding streams and spearhead grant applications.

This is a unique opportunity to be the driving force in bringing in crucial funds to an organisation making a real difference to vulnerable refugee children’s lives.

  • Manage internal database of past, current and potential funders


  • Experience in research and grant writing

    Successful applicants must be prepared to live and work in very basic conditions with limited access to running water, electricity and Wi-Fi.

    A fundraising commitment for charity is required. Successful applicants will be assigned a fundraising mentor who is on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have as well as providing ideas, advice and support to help you reach your target.
