Saidiana is a Minnesota-based nonprofit operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Saidiana’s mission is to empower Congolese women to create a better future for themselves and their families by providing resources to support their business ventures. Saidiana accomplishes its mission in two ways: by providing cash grants to collectives of women to fund startups and expansions of micro-businesses and by training women in trades and basic business skills and providing support to them in business startups. You can learn more about us at saidianacongo.org.

We seek to add a board member fluent in French and/or Swahili, in addition to English, to join our organization. All board members participate in monthly board meetings, leverage their networks on behalf of Saidiana for fundraising and partnering, and perform work in areas such as fundraising, event planning, communications, and general management. This board member will also be on regular calls with our team in the Congo and be one of the main communicators between the Congo staff and the board. This is a volunteer position and candidates need to be prepared to commit 10-20 hours per month to the role.
