Head of strategic partnerships

Start date: As soon as possible

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Through the Family Development Program (FDP) we support vulnerable families in the slums to solve problems on their own. We do not provide any material help; instead, we provide information, counseling and connect them to free of cost or at concession public or private services. The program aims to maximize the use of existing services by families, who have so far remained excluded. After the 6 months we work with each family, they significantly improve their conditions and family relations by themselves. Annually we support around 2000 families living in slums across Mumbai and Thane.
Currently, the program is transitioning from a family approach to a woman-centric approach. The 2 anchors of the program will be fighting against domestic violence and women’s empowerment.

WHY FDP?
We seek to empower our team members by providing autonomy and trust to explore and develop their full potential. We support ideas, people, and approaches that challenge the status quo. You will be working with passionate teams committed to the upliftment of families living in the slums and most importantly, you will be able to witness the impact of your work.
