Grant Writer

Jara www.joinjara.com is an award-winning growing international education technology startup that is working towards providing  emergency and remote education opportunities through the Jara Unit to displaced children whose education is disrupted due to conflict and/or natural disasters including COVID-19. 

Who We Are: We are creating the Jara Unit, the first off-the-grid powered low-cost IoT-enabled education device that can enable a child to learn anywhere, anytime in low-internet low-power communities. The device runs on solar and crank power with geographically customized content that is updated through IoT technology. The Jara Unit is a long-term viable alternative learning solution, so every child on this planet can get access to the quality education they deserve. We are currently signing agreements with Governments/Education Ministries globally and customers. We have received continuous support from Cisco and recognition from the United Nations, Samsung, ASME, and more.

Who You Are: We are looking for an experienced Grant Writer to join our agile, close-knit team and to accelerate our growth in enabling children everywhere to get access to a quality education. In addition to identifying and applying for grants, you will collaborate on non-profit fundraising strategies and identify and cultivate leads within your own and the larger Jara network. This position will start as a pro bono role at this time and  has potential to become a paid position or a commission-based position. Be part of the change that enables learning anywhere, anytime, to reach hundreds of millions of children globally.

This role can be remote and we are open to candidates anywhere globally.
