CHASE Africa is a growing UK-based international NGO working to support rural communities in East Africa. We believe that when people in resource-poor, rural and marginalised communities are healthy, are able to make informed family planning decisions and live in a sustainable and flourishing natural environment, they are far more likely to have a better quality of life and leave poverty behind.
Based near Frome in Somerset, CHASE Africa has ambitious plans to increase its impact across sub-Saharan Africa over the next few years, and enable more organisations working in Africa to adopt community health and sexual and reproductive health activities alongside conservation programmes.

We have worked with 13 trusted local partner organisations in Kenya and Uganda to integrate rights-based family planning programmes into their work.
The CHASE Africa team have developed excellent relationships with a number of UK and overseas trusts, high net-worth individuals and regular donors. Income continues to increase enabling more work to be done.
Main Purpose of the Role
