Job Description/Requirements

About us

Lively Minds is an award-winning NGO, working to get pre-schoolers in rural Ghana & Uganda school-ready. Since 2008, we have developed an innovative, behavior-change program that empowers marginalized, poorly-educated mothers to run educational ‘Play Schemes’ for pre-schoolers and to provide better home-based care, using local resources. The Lively Minds program aims to improve the school-readiness of rural kindergarten children, by training parents to provide practical, cost-free learning and developmental activities in the kindergarten and at home.


These are exciting times for Lively Minds. Our program in Uganda is in a test and position-for-scale stage with the long-term aim of the national roll-out. Our long-term goal is for the program to be adopted in several countries in the developing world so that it can have a large impact in tackling the global early childhood development crisis.

 

We’re an ambitious team, determined to have a major positive impact on the world. We work hard, at a fast pace, in a challenging environment. We expect everyone to give their best to achieve the best possible results. Our work is demanding but provides plenty of opportunities for learning, growth, and creativity. We want all staff to be happy, fulfilled, and to feel appreciated and valued in their work.
