There are currently two openings at SKS Foundation that we thought our readers might be interested in: 1) Summer Intern at the Ultra Poor Program and 2) Program Director. First, here is a brief description of SKS Foundation:
Swayam Krishi Sangam Foundation is a non-profit arm of SKS Microfinance. SKS Foundation is determined to eradicate poverty in India through initiatives to empower the ultra poor to become self-reliant by providing access to economic, social and health development. The SKS Ultra Poor Program, modeled after the highly successful BRAC program in Bangladesh, attacks the challenge of extreme poverty on three levels: economic, social and health, and aims to graduate clients into being able to run a sustainable income-generating enterprise—and potentially into mainstream microfinance.
More about the available positions after the jump.
