Driver Vacancy at Tatua Kenya

On Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
Tatua Kenya
Promoting ‘Ground-Up’ Solutions to Poverty in Kenya.
Vacancy – Driver
Organization Summary
Currently Kenya is dominated by a ‘top-down’ approach to poverty in which solutions originate from voices separated from the ‘on-the-ground’ experience of poverty. Tatua Kenya is reversing this approach by providing opportunities for the local community, those ‘on-the-ground,’ to join in the creation of solutions to Kenya’s poverty crisis.
Our program involves two components. One, we run Be the Change – Kenya. Be the Change is our flagship initiative and a model of Tatua Kenya’s ‘ground-up’ approach to poverty alleviation working towards the eradication of child poverty in Kenya. Two, we strengthen the work of local Kenyan organizations by providing access to high-quality community organizing training.
Be the Change – Kenya works towards the eradication of child poverty by building the capacity of local leaders and organizations. We work alongside the Kenyan community to build relationships, mobilize local resources and create sustainable solutions for children living in poverty in Kenya.
