Board Member

Our board With a very minimal staff, we rely on our board members to be active participants in a working board. We meet quarterly, but our board members do a lot of work on their own and in committees to drive the vision of the organization forward.
Position We are currently looking for board members to fill a variety of roles on our Board of Directors. We are looking for people with backgrounds in finance and accounting, fundraising, PR and marketing, program development, grant writing, and many others. We currently have 5 positions open on our board. We are an international non-profit based in Cincinnati and our organization works on projects related to access to clean water, health care, and education in three partner communities in rural Tanzania. We also work in Cincinnati to create a new generation of globally minded citizens by bringing lessons of love and community from Tanzania to our hometown. If you're interested in getting involved in international development work, we may be the right organization for you.
