Spark MicroGrants believes in a world where everyone lives with dignity and determines their own positive future. For nearly ten years, Spark MicroGrants has been pioneering a new approach to international aid. We believe in local solutions and catalyzing rural villages facing poverty into action. br/> br/> At the heart of Spark’s model, the Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP), are ‘town-hall’ style weekly meetings, in which women and men plan together for their community’s future. Each village democratically elects a leadership committee, establishes a village savings account, and launches a project of their choice. Members receive weekly training on financial management and transparency, accountable leadership, village planning, and advocacy. Each village then receives US$8,000 in seed funds to turn project ideas into reality and receives an additional two years of management support. Over 260 villages have used the Spark process to collectively launch nearly 300 local impact projects, benefiting over 190,000 lives. br/> br/> In the next three years, we aim to prove the success of our approach and work with governments and civil society organizations around the world to change the conversation around and practice of how development is achieved - with communities in the driver’s seat of their own development. In order to achieve this, we need a strong, dedicated and experienced Human Resource Professional for the position of “HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER” to lead, manage, guide and administer all of the Human Resource (HR) functions for the Rwanda Country Office.
