Background
The mission of World Voices Positive (WVP) Kenya is to give children and youth in Kenya
affected by poverty and disease a fair start to life through education, health enhancing
activities, and a strengthening of community responses to their needs. WVP Kenya currently
operates seven core and inter-linked programmes: providing primary, secondary, vocational
and tertiary scholarships; engaging children and youth in sports and health activities;
building community capacity through the provision of social and financial resources to
support orphaned and vulnerable children; facilitating the building of basic infrastructure;
engaging local people in advocacy for healthy and sustainable living; supporting young
caregiving children; and providing direct assistance to families and children who are most in
need.
WVP Kenya is now looking for a Campaigns & Fundraising Intern to lead a three-month
fundraising campaign to promote WVPs work to a wider audience through the website and
social media, increase WVPs private donations and diversify its funding base. The
successful candidate will be home-based, with support provided by monthly meetings with
WVP Trustees in London and remotely, via email or phone. The successful candidate will
be given considerable scope to design and lead the campaign as s/he sees fit, within
reason and with the Trustees prior approval on key actions. The position therefore
represents an excellent opportunity for those looking for a career in campaigning, marketing
or fundraising.
Travel expenses incurred for work will be reimbursable, if agreed in advance.
