Set-up Coordinator NGO Careers – Lively Minds

 

Job Title:    Set-up Coordinator

Organisation: Lively
Minds 

Duty Station:  Uganda

 

About US:

Lively Minds is an
award-winning NGO working to get pre-schoolers in rural Ghana & Uganda
school-ready. Over 250 million children under 5 years globally do not get the
early childhood care and education (“ECCE”) they need, leading to poor health,
poor education, lost life opportunities and poverty. We believe that one of the
main barriers to ECCE is that parents in remote resource-poor villages lack the
information, education and aspiration to provide basic and affordable
opportunities for their children. We have developed an innovative
behaviour-change programme that empowers marginalized, poorly educated Mothers
to run educational Play Schemes for pre-schoolers and to provide better
home-based care, using cheap local resources. Not only does this result in
positive outcomes for child development, but also has positive impacts for the
Mothers too.
