  • East African Social Ventures (EASV) is a social enterprise organization dedicated to sustainable and equitable job creation for East African citizens. We find market opportunities that match our concurrent goals of strong financial performance and creating large numbers of jobs for bottom-of-the-pyramid workers. We are an agribusiness organization initially focused on large-scale poultry meat and feed-crop production in Western Kenya. Our goals are ambitious – we’ll be the largest private employer in Nyanza province by 2025.

     

    Project Intern

     

    About the role:

    We are initiating large-scale poultry farming operations in Western Kenya and are seeking a highly ambitious, self-motivated recent university graduate for a 2-3 month internship. You will be paid a small monthly stipend plus incurred business expenses for your work. You'll need to provide your own computer and must live in the Kisumu-Siaya area for this role.

    We're looking for someone with a demonstrated interest in social entrepreneurship and community development. You'll be part community organizer and part researcher - conducting meetings with churches and community organizations and speaking to them about our goals and how we can partner with them, as well as performing both Internet and community-based research. You'll be a spokesperson for our organization, so we need someone who can represent us well and who genuinely enjoys working with the local community. In this role you'll frequently travel during the day locally to collect data and meet with farmers and community organizations, and later spend time compiling and organizing all of the data you've collected into Microsoft Excel as well as writing reports in Microsoft Word for the use of our management team.


    This is an opportunity to gain exposure to business planning, better understand the field of social impact, and get a start in building a career based on making a positive difference in African communities. You will work directly with our CEO and management team and as such gain invaluable experience working with senior executives. The work you do will help make a real impact on the lives of farmers and rural community members and you'll know you're contributing to the local community.

    Qualifications:

    • University degree, or 4th year University student with good grades
    • Good working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel
    • Strong personal conviction in the power of social enterprise organizations to solve economic development issues
    • Comfortable speaking in front of small groups such as small churches or other community organizations
    • Able to travel in the Kisumu-Siaya-Kakamega area
    • Ability to work independently and be self-motivated
    • Fluency in English and Kiswahili

    Preferred Qualifications:

    • Experience with agricultural organizations
    • Dhuluo language fluency

    Method of Application

    Please send your CV and a letter telling us about yourself and why you think you're the right person for this Internship to Michael DeHart at m.dehart@easocialventures.com. Please include at least 2 references.
