Grant Writer for Cambodia

  • Brooklyn, NY, US

Please send resume or your interest in the position to Paula Shirk:

paula.shirk@bb2c.org

Thank you for your interest in helping Brooklyn Bridge to Cambodia, Inc. (BB2C), a 501(3)(c) Non-Profit. Your help, no matter what form or capacity, will go far in changing many lives. This is an opportunity to experience international development from the beginning stages of our organization.

Our organization is currently transitioning from an early stage non-profit and entering a period of growth as we continue to build scale. The first phase of our organization was used to establish a strong platform– through a dedicated staff, establish validation for BB2C's mission through grassroots demand our agricultural tools, foster strong connections with academia and increase exposure to the social venture capital community.

Background:

BB2C, founded in 2007, grew out of our efforts to assist one family in Cambodia. In 2003, Founder Paula Shirk adopted her son, Rudi, from Cambodia. After learning that his birth family was living in crushing poverty, she helped them start a small business in the local market. With the goal of promoting entrepreneurship on a wider scale, BB2C now provides developmental aid to poor Cambodian farmers.

Through our innovative agricultural tools, which include the Rudi Khmer Pump and Eli Rice Seeder, we offer our customers highly profitable and productive business opportunities. Farmers use our water pumps to irrigate and diversify their crops, sell the surplus, and have a means to escape poverty. Our new addition to the product line, the Eli Seeder, is a rice planter that does away with backbreaking work carried out by women, which involves bending over all day in rice paddies during the rice planting season. A Oxfam agricultural specialist remarked, "Your rice planter will change the future of rice planting in Cambodia, and beyond". In addition to Cambodia, BB2C is submitting patents in most South East Asian countries.

At the recent Impact Challenge held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a prestigious social innovators competition, attracting the best social innovators in Asia, BB2C's rice seeder technology came in among the top 10 out of 240 teams. We were not prepared for the overwhelming interest in our product. Our work is now being followed closely by investors, bankers and government officials.
