Build It International is an NGO creating opportunities for young people and their communities through skills training, work experience and essential community building projects. We have pioneered a sustainable, livelihoods based approach to community infrastructure provision and are now expanding our building skills training work.
Our core activity is to train young men and women in building skills so that they can go on to earn a living. We deliver this through our programme of community building construction projects (mainly school construction projects) and through building skills training at our Centre for Excellence currently under development.
We have now completed 41 building projects and trained 704 men and women in building skills. By 2021, we aim to significantly scale up our work and impact by training 500 trainees a year whilst continuing to construct 3-4 schools and health clinics a year.
We are now seeking an experienced, creative, and determined individual to manage and coordinate pre and post-build support to the schools and communities that Build It works with. The individual will have a key role in researching potential beneficiary schools and other community projects in need of buildings, community engagement during the build period, and post-build support to empower communities and improve the provision of quality education, and when required, other essential services within our projects. The role will involve working closely with key stakeholders such as DEBS, other NGOS, school management and the community to ensure full and sustainable use of new facilities.
