African Revival is a UK-based registered charity focused on increasing the quality of education in Zambia, Uganda, and South Sudan. For our offices in Uganda and Zambia, we are now seeking 2 Fundraising and Communications Volunteers (FCV) to support our expanding fundraising strategy in collaboration with our UK head office.
African Revival's work has three elements: school management, school environment, and school resources. Together these three areas form a holistic whole for creating lasting changes in primary schools. Our aim is to work with the local communities and schools to develop a shared strategy for a period of 3-4 years. African Revival then supports the realisation of the strategy and assists the communities to develop their school into a centre of excellence. We are currently working with more than 45 schools with the aim of expanding our outreach through both local and international strategic partnerships over the next 5 years.
It is expected that within 3 years we will have an annual GBP budget of 2 million for our operations in Southern Zambia, Northern Uganda and South Sudan. The Fundraising and Communications Volunteer will be directly responsible for enabling the UK fundraising team to have the most up-to-date information for both existing and new projects.
The FCVs will also be responsible for writing up and submitting donor reports to the UK Fundraising Manager to ensure compliance with donor requirements. Documentation (photos and videos) can form part of the reporting whereby skills in photography and shooting and editing videos is very desirable.
The role is currently temporary (set at 6 months) but it is envisioned that the position will become an integral part of the implementation of a cohesive and effective fundraising and communication strategy which may lead to an extension in the contract.
We expect that the volunteers are able to take up their positions before end of March and prefereably sooner. However, flexibility will be extended to exceptional candidates.
Monday to Friday but flexibility is required. It is necessary that the Fundraising and Communications Officer is willing and able to spend occasional nights at project sites under very basic conditions.
African Revival's offices in Kalomo, Zambia. And African Revival's office in Gulu, Uganda.
The Fundraising and Communications Volunteer will report to the in-country Programma Manager and the UK Fundraising Manager
This is an unpaid position. However, African Revival will cover the cost of flight and insurance for the FCV. Shared accommodation is also provided for at the African Revival house in Kalomo/Gulu.
