This will in turn:
● Increase the financial stability and sustainability of KT by building our core income and connecting with new donors
● Allow for long-term planning and long-term commitment to our work in specific localities (which a reliance on Government funding, typically one- or two-year funding cycles, does not).

● Identify and maximise opportunities for data capture and ensure all data is managed in a way compliant with current best practice.
● Identifying key opportunities to engage individual and corporate supporters through the year, e.g. LGBT+ History Month, Pride Month and other notable dates.
● As appropriate across income streams, make timely and compelling applications for funding in line within the strategic plan, including but not limited to: proposals to trusts and foundations and major donors; pitches and presentations to local companies for corporate sponsorship options.
● Use digital media to connect, communicate and reach supporters and develop fundraising initiatives.
● Working with the programmes and communications team, maintain an up-to-date bank of stories and case studies from Kaleidoscope Trust for use in fundraising applications and supporter updates.

People with albinism are being marginalised, mutilated and murdered across Africa simply for the colour of their skin. Join Standing Voice and raise life-saving funds and awareness to defend people with albinism against this horrific discrimination and violence.
About Standing Voice
Albinism is a recessive genetic condition that impairs the body’s production of melanin, reducing or eliminating pigmentation in the skin, eyes and hair. This melanin deficiency causes people with albinism to be visually impaired and, in hot climates, uniquely vulnerable to UV radiation and skin cancer. Markedly paler than their dark-skinned peers and families, people with albinism are a highly visible minority in many African countries, where their condition remains poorly understood and highly stigmatised due to erroneous beliefs and myths. Many people with albinism are shut out of civil participation and unable to access the most basic opportunities and services, including healthcare, education, justice, housing and employment. Some have even been targeted for their body parts, used in witchcraft charms thought to bring wealth and fortune: 231 people with albinism have been killed, and 806 in total attacked, across 30 African countries since 2006. These are just the reported figures.
Standing Voice is the leading international organisation dedicated to defending the rights of people with albinism in Africa. Working across Tanzania and Malawi, where the violence and discrmination has been most extreme, Standing Voice delivers programmes in health, education, welfare, advocacy and economic empowerment. Our charity has established clinical networks to treat visual impairment and prevent skin cancer; relocated children with albinism from segregated camps to inclusive schools and universities; and supported hundreds of adults to recover from trauma and rebuild their lives through therapy, apprenticeships and training. Above all, we have worked to amplify the voices of people with albinism from grassroots community contexts through to the halls of the United Nations.
About the Role
Standing Voice is seeking an ambitious and capable individual to join our growing team and provide essential support across a range of fundraising and communications functions. This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated individual with fundraising and communications experience to take the next step in their career with an exciting and dynamic international development charity.
The Fundraising and Communications Officer will be responsible for raising essential funds and awareness to ensure the continued delivery of Standing Voice’s life-changing programmes on the ground in Tanzania and Malawi. The main responsibilities of this role are to manage and develop new and existing relationships with a diverse portfolio of donors (including trust, statutory and multilateral sources, as well as individual givers), while supporting the production of a range of communications materials spanning our website, social media platforms, newsletters and campaigns.
The successful candidate will report directly to the Head of Fundraising and Communications, and will have the opportunity to work closely with colleagues across the UK, Tanzania and Malawi. Although international travel is not essential for this role, there are likely to be opportunities to visit Standing Voice’s country offices in Tanzania and Malawi, and to represent the charity at external events across the globe.
