  • Heshima Kenya is a non-profit organization based in Nairobi, Kenya dedicated to identifying, protecting, and empowering unaccompanied refugee children and youth, especially adolescent girls, through our specialized shelter, education, and advocacy programs. The Girls’ Empowerment Project (GEP) is our alternative education program that allows participants to access education and livelihood opportunities, learn about their human rights and to cultivate leadership skills. Consisting of 4 Levels, the GEP focuses on basic education, life-skills development, vocational training, and income generation through our social enterprise, the Maisha Collective. In 2018, we intend to expand the current GEP vocational curriculum so students can learn new skills that will help create new economic streams and improve their livelihoods.

    The Business Education Teacher is responsible for strengthening and expanding financial literacy and business curricula within all levels of our Girls Empowerment Project Curriculum. The position will report directly to the GEP Associate Program Director and will work in collaboration with the GEP teachers and Professional Guidance Counsellors.
