Sexual violence against children and adolescents (SVAC) is one of the largest silent pandemics of our time. It is a problem that festers in homes, online, and in communities in every country on Earth. To end this silent pandemic, the brave movement, a new global networked movement of survivors and allies has been launched. The aim of the brave movement is to drive advocacy and campaigns as a powerful voice for transformative change.
Working with the direction of global survivors and allied partners, this new movement demands an end to the pandemic of sexual violence through: (1) advocacy for bold public policy solutions; and (2) campaigns to shift societal norms, eradicate survivor stigma and break the conspiracy of silence that enables sexual violence to continue. The brave movement is mobilizing survivors and allies that are globally connected, nationally coordinated, and locally grounded. It has adopted a three-pronged advocacy framework of prevention, healing and justice.
At present, the brave movement has identified a number of specific areas of emphasis, including: building a global movement of survivors of sexual violence in childhood; the end to statue of limitations worldwide; creating a safer on-line environment for children; putting prevention and response to sexual violence against children on the agenda of the G7; and increasing exponentially the funding available for this work.
We are seeking a dynamic, innovative leader with significant advocacy and campaigning experience to help realise the full potential of this game-changing effort for children and adolescents worldwide. This is a leadership and facilitation role for a strong manager and convener.

About City Cancer Challenge (C/CAN):
City Cancer Challenge Foundation (C/Can) supports cities around the world as they work to improve access to equitable, quality cancer care.
The approach is built on the core principle that cities can drive impact at national level by crafting data-driven solutions with the support of a network of global, regional, and local partners that reflect an understanding of the unique local context.
C/Can was launched by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) at the 2017 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos. It was established as a standalone Swiss foundation in January 2019.
In close collaboration with the Director of Global Affairs, the Head of Institutional Fundraising will support C/Can resource mobilisation efforts aimed at enhancing and building relationships within the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) global health network as well as diversifying and opening up new funding opportunities.
The new Head of Institutional Fundraising will be a self-starter, relationship builder with international experience and already established networks within foundations and governmental field in the health sector. It will be someone who can open doors and unblock funding mechanisms to support C/CAN programmes at the city, country, and regional levels, and who will open and cultivate relationships with new funders and help diversify funding by acquiring new grants from governments and large foundations.
This is not the traditional institutional fundraising role, as there are not readily available funding mechanisms to apply to, so the post holder will need to steward funders to unlock funds to support C/CAN programmes, being a strong networker, with outstanding skills in establishing and growing relations. Ideal location is Washington DC, USA or Geneva Switzerland, but other locations could be evaluated.

The Glacier Trust is looking for a creative, passionate and committed Executive Director to lead the ongoing development of our project work in Nepal, and advocacy work in the UK.
Since its launch in 2008, The Glacier Trust (TGT) has established itself as a small but impactful NGO enabling climate change adaptation in Nepal’s remote mountain communities. In recent years TGT has increased its profile in the UK through the launch of a project-linked coffee brand ‘Nepal Glacier Coffee’, a short film ‘Coffee. Climate. Community.’ and most recently a podcast and book project ‘Great Adaptations’, which even included a collaboration with a Bristol based brewery to create a Great Adaptations beer that used ingredients grown organically in our project areas.
In Nepal, we partner with two excellent NGOs, Eco Himal Nepal and HICODEF, with whom we have enabled the successful piloting, scaling, and replication of a community-led Agro Forestry Resource Centre model for climate resilient sustainable development. Our Higher Education programme has evolved through the coordination of a partnership between UK and Nepal Universities to enable early career researchers to conduct climate change adaptation related fieldwork as part of our contribution to nurturing the next generation of climate change adaptation professionals.
The principle purpose of this new post is to ensure the efficient and effective day to day running of The Glacier Trust (TGT). This includes management of fundraising, project selection, and providing strategic leadership concerning the direction of The Glacier Trust in partnership with the Board of Trustees and two advisors, one in Nepal and one in the UK.
As recognition of the need for climate change adaptation grows, this is an opportunity to join an organisation that has played a pioneering role in enabling adaptation projects that intersect with the broader ecological, social justice, mitigation and sustainable development needs in some of the world’s most vulnerable locations.

The Glacier Trust’s purpose: Climate change is threatening sustainable agriculture in many parts of the Himalayas.

The Trust also has a higher education programme providing scholarships that enable Nepali undergraduates and postgraduates to improve the quality of their fieldwork and research programmes. The Glacier Trust has also built its profile in the UK as an advocate for approaches to climate change adaptation that are both transformative and aligned with climate justice.
Candidate suitability: This post would provide an ideal grounding for someone wanting to build a career in international development, climate adaptation, and leadership in the NGO sector. It is an opportunity to lead an organisation that is looking to increase its outreach and further develop the quality and quantity of what it delivers. Flexibility in time allocation and working arrangements means that it should be possible to accommodate academic study / research commitments, and/or family and caring commitments. Applicants should note that this role requires travel to Nepal and field trips of up to two weeks in remote and mountainous environments.
