About STM:
Save the Mothers (STM) is an
international organization that is operating in Uganda but is registered in the
US, Canada and East Africa. Its vision is that “no mother or her child
should die of pregnancy complications”. It is a non-governmental
organization equipping professionals in developing countries–who work in a
wide array of disciplines–to improve the health of mothers and babies.
Multidisciplinary professionals are trained through the Master of Public Health
Leadership Program, which is hosted by Save the Mothers at the Uganda Christian
University. Through their specific vocations, graduates of our Master in Public
Health Leadership (MPHL) program become influencers for positive societal
change, working to overcome preventable maternal death. STM has enrolled over 350
East African professionals in its MPHL Program at UCU, developing change agents
that bring change in maternal health to their spheres of influence. In
addition, STM is utilizing its graduates to bring measurable and sustainable
change to health facilities through its Mother Baby Friendly Hospital
Initiative (now working in eight Ugandan hospitals).
Job Summary: The Fundraising and Development
Coordinator will play a focal role in helping to ensure that resources are
available to make that a reality and will contribute to fundraising and grant
writing with a focus on sources that are primarily from the East African
context (and hence more sustainable and regional). This funding will support
the leadership training of multidisciplinary East African professionals
(through a Master of Public Health Leadership program) and clinical outreach
activities (such as the Mother Baby Hospital Friendly Initiative) of Save the
Mothers.
