Volunteer Board Position Accepting Applications

Free Haven Community Initiative, Inc. (FHCI) is a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) located in Livingstone, Zambia that has four main areas of focus: Education, Health, Nutrition, and Empowerment.

In order for the Zambian NGO to be successful, a non-profit organization called Free Haven Community Initiative, Inc. was formed in America to assist its Zambian counterpart. By organizing fundraisers, processing donations, and handling marketing strategies, this partnership makes it possible for the Zambian-based NGO to carry out its day to day functions and focus on its primary goals.

The American non-profit is run by a board of directors. The people on this board volunteer their time to make the aforementioned tasks possible. In addition to the American team, the Zambian-based NGO has its own board of directors to manage the organization’s projects in Zambia.

We are currently looking to add a new director focused on marketing and fundraising on the American, non-profit board.
