  • African Solutions to African Problems: Executive Director

    African Solutions to African Problems (ASAP)
    Please note: this opportunity closing date has passed and may not be available any more.
    Opportunity closing date: 
    Thursday, January 8, 2015
    Opportunity type: 
    Employment
    African Solutions to African Problems (ASAP) supports grassroots organisations to care for orphans and vulnerable children in rural South Africa. ASAP develops and supports Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) of women providing care for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) affected by HIV/AIDS in rural villages in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. These communities are in isolated, deeply rural, communities, which have been overwhelmed by the catastrophic effects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

    ASAP was founded in 2003, with a core mission of utilizing existing solutions to care for the increasing numbers of OVC, to channel funds to marginalized communities. This methodology has the benefit of maintaining cultural ties and strengthening communities that have been devastated by HIV/AIDS. In the ASAP Model, the OVC are able to remain with extended family, who are in turn supported in their role of caretaker. The other key benefit of our approach is that it
    is financially efficient; relatively small amounts can make a significant difference to a large number of children.

    ASAP has developed a six-year developmental model to provide long term holistic care for children that will positively impact their lives and futures. Initially, we identify emerging groups of women who want support from us. We then work with them over the course of 6 years to establish a Community Based Organisation to provide nutrition, access to education, healthcare and government services, and psychosocial support to the OVC. We also provide a wide range of training that includes effective management operations, counselling and agricultural techniques. A key component of the Model is the building of a drop-in centre; this is the headquarters of the CBO from which care services are provided. Along side the drop-in centre, a permaculture garden is built to provide fresh nutritious food for the children on a year round basis. Other key elements of the services include programmes for youths and adolescents such as gender equality workshops, support to complete secondary education; and treatment and counselling for children who are HIV positive. In addition, we provide libraries to local schools, art and music workshops and grandmothers support groups.

    The goal is that after six years, the CBO will graduate to be an independent entity, sourcing and managing their own funding streams so that they are sustainable in the long term to service the OVC of the community.

    ASAP plans to increase the number of projects over the next three years, doing so at an appropriate pace so that we can maintain the integrity and effectiveness of our Model, while aiming to maximise the number of OVC who will benefit from the holistic long term care and long lasting benefits to the communities. The new Executive Director will play a key role in the design and execution of the expansion plan.

    ASAP seeks to appoint an experienced and enthusiastic person to be the Executive Director (ED), based in Cape Town and will involve frequent travel to the field office in Matatiele and to its projects in the Eastern Cape.
