About Save the Mothers:
Save the Mothers (STM) is an international organization operating in
Uganda, but registered in the United States, Canada, and East Africa. Its
vision is “No mother or her child should die of pregnancy
complications.” STM 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 (MPHL)
program, hosted by Save the Mothers at the Uganda Christian University (UCU).
Through their specific vocations, graduates of our 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 Officer will be committed to improving maternal and child
health in a global community where mothers and babies continue to die from
preventable diseases. The fellow’s primary task will be to ensure that
resources are available to make STM’s vision a reality. The fellow 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.
