Duty Station:  Katale, Seguku, Wakiso
Reports To: Country Director

About US:
Pangea
Educational Development (PED) is a small nonprofit organization that believes
in the liberating power and opportunities provided by a quality education. Our
model was developed to empower communities to improve their own educational
circumstances: the school environment, livelihoods of teachers, and access for
under-resourced students and to do so in a way that is sustainable. We are a
community of changemakers, mixed with staff, volunteers, and community
champions. Each member of our community is working towards realizing our mission
by dedicating their time and skills through a wholehearted commitment to it. As
a result, we are equally dedicated to those who work with us.

We
are seeking an individual whose dedication to the value of education matches
our own. We are seeking an individual who has a heart for empowering Ugandans
to recognize the richness and importance of their cultural heritage and has a
desire to share it with others. We are seeking an individual who is willing to
work odd and sometimes long, exhaustive hours to do what is right and not just
what is easy or will suffice. We are seeking an individual who can laugh as
hard as they can work, someone who is not just looking for a job, but an avenue
to pursue their passion.
