Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Grants Manager

Who We Are
At EarthEnable, we believe that our clients deserve our very best, that morning high-fives are the best way to start the day, and that the best ideas can come from any part of the company. We celebrate each other’s wins, learn from our setbacks, and are deeply proud of the impact we make every day. We believe that a clean, dust-free floor means more than living in a healthy home. It means pride and dignity in the place our customers treasure most: their homes. Being a part of our team means more than building floors: it means building an organization and building a better future for rural families.

What We Do
EarthEnable is transforming the way people live, by making homes healthier for families across rural Rwanda and Uganda. 62% of Rwandans and Ugandans live in homes with dirt floors which are dusty, unsanitary, and fertile breeding grounds for parasites and germs. While replacing a dirt floor with concrete has significant health benefits (e.g. reducing diarrhea by 50% and parasitic infections by 80%), concrete is unaffordable for many who need it.

EarthEnable addresses this pressing and ubiquitous problem by selling high-quality, earthen floors that are 80% cheaper than concrete with 96% less carbon emissions. Our earthen floors are composed of natural materials (gravel, clay, sand, and laterite) and sealed using a proprietary drying oil that makes them waterproof, strong, and polished. EarthEnable trains and certifies micro-franchisees who run their own businesses selling and installing the floors in their communities. EarthEnable has already helped 50,000 people to live on clean, beautiful floors across Rwanda and Uganda, and has big plans to scale across East Africa and beyond in the coming years.

About the Role
EarthEnable’s Grants Manager will lead the Grants and Fundraising Team, working directly with the CEO to help EarthEnable shape the future of rural housing and health. He or she will compose grant applications, advise and support the Executive team and CEO in developing a fundraising strategy, develop and execute fundraising campaigns, liaise with internal and external stakeholders, report outcomes to donors, and upskill other employees in grant writing and reporting. The Grants Manager will also get the chance to work on special projects depending on their interests. The successful candidate will be an ambitious, hard-working, and passionate individual who possesses a strong sense of social mission, thrives in a fast-paced, start-up environment, excels at working autonomously, and demonstrates an unparalleled ability to multi-task while being detail-oriented.
