We are looking for a very organized individual who can create an easy to use editorial calendar for a nonprofit. This content calendar should be a template that we can use to plan posts in the future. This person should have experience creating editorial calendars and a solid understanding of how social media works.
An editorial calendar will help our communications tremendously because it will keep us organized and on track. It will also help us plan for the year and to schedule content far in advance.
Ending extreme poverty in rural Africa through entrepreneurship and innovation.
Working in rural African villages, Village Enterprise's mission is to end extreme poverty in rural Africa through entrepreneurship and innovation. Our model is simple and cost-effective, at just $500 per three-person business.
The Village Enterprise one-year Graduation program provides groups of three entrepreneurs with seed capital, training and on-going mentoring by a local business mentor. We organize the business groups into Business Savings Groups (BSGs) of 30 entrepreneurs (10 business groups) to allow access to growth capital, provide a safe place for savings and build social capital. Integrated conservation training ensures that new business activities promote environmental best practices. Examples of businesses include livestock, farming, small retail stores and restaurants, tailoring, and beekeeping.
Village Enterprise has started over 33,000 businesses and trained over 136,000 East Africans. As we scale up and move into new communities, we're designing and testing pilots to improve our impact and efficiency.
