YOU are a talented, results-driven nonprofit communicator who understands the role of development as the fuel for a mission. You are laser-focused on relationships and results through direct engagement with donors, prospects and partner organizations. You’re a creative, team-player who loves telling stories and a strategic thinker who isn’t afraid to write your own copy!
As the Director of Development and Communications you will focus primarily on serving as an outward-facing representative of TKP, while also building the day-to-day development and communications operations, including: shepherding gifts through internal systems, making sure thank yous and follow-ups are sent, and maintaining a communications calendar to highlight TKP key messages.
WE are The Kilgoris Project. We partner with rural Kenyan communities to operate 12 schools, serving 1,600+ students in early childhood through Class 8 programs. In our holistic model, we provide nutrition and health care support, as well as clean water, trained teachers and school farms for communities around Kilgoris, Kenya.
Our model works. In an area where 60% of students at government schools fail their high school entry exam, we can boast of 100% transition to high school. And in 2021 we were honored by the Nairobi-based Daima Trust with a National Diversity and Inclusion Award for first-place award in “Best Collaborative Approach to Community-based Development”.
The Kilgoris Project is motivated by Christian faith and maintains an open-door policy: All students are welcome, regardless of religious preference, tribal affiliation, income or family background.
We have a fantastic team—a small U.S. staff, all working remotely, and a larger executive, administrative, and program staff in Kilgors. We’re looking for the right person to staff this newly-combined, full-time role.
