Office Coordinator – Maternity Cover

Posted By on Friday, September 25, 2015

Our client is an international non-profit working to support girls, who are Rwanda’s greatest untapped driver of social and economic growth. In Rwanda, girls are highly valued, but that value is frequently confined to a path already determined for them. A girl is often constrained by only ever having two roles: a daughter in her parents’ home, then a wife in the home of her husband. Girl Hub Rwanda, with a coalition of partners, works to create a shared positive identity for girls, both among girls themselves, and among their families, friends and communities. The aim is to build the skills and experience girls need to become empowered and contribute to Rwanda’s economic development. They are looking for a brilliant Associate Brand Manager to develop and implement creative initiatives that enhance Rwanda's first youth brand: Ni Nyampinga.
