International fundraiser v/Susanne Haas

Bestyrelsen har siden forsommeren arbejdet med at identificere den perfekte kandidat til at løfte opgaven som international fundraiser for Masanga Projektet. Jobbet er lønnet og med base i Freetown. Da vi desværre ikke havde økonomi til at bære en dansk fundraiser-løn og dermed ikke kunne forlænge ansættelsen af foreningens fundraiser, er dette vores store, nye stats. Siden ebolaen epidemien ved vi, at der er penge og investorer i landet. Mange spillere vil gerne være med til at ruste en skrøbelig stat som Sierra Leone til i fremtiden at kunne håndtere tilsvarende udbrud bedre. Men der er en relativ mangel på implementatorer, og det er her vi kommer ind i billedet.

Den internationale fundraiser skal etablere et fundraising kontor i Freetown og ansætte/oplære en lokal ansat til at varetage funktionen fremadrettet. Fundraising enheden vil samtiig være den spæde start på etableringen af et lokalt Masanga branch i Sierra Leone, Masanga SL, som fremadrettet forhåbentligt vil være den primært tilknyttede og financierende NGO.

Vi har været gennem en længere screenings- og ansættelses proces og havde identificeret en stærk kandidat, som desværre blev hvervet til et andet og for hende personligt mere relevant job i elvte time. Nu er vi atter på udkig så spred endelig det glade budskab i jeres netværk:
