Lively Minds Recruitment 2023/2024

Applications are invited from interested and suitably qualified candidates for Lively Minds Recruitment 2023/2024.

Lively Minds is an award-winning international NGO currently working in both Ghana and Uganda to ensure that children in highly deprived communities receive a quality education and care in their early years- the age that makes such a big difference to their future development. Working through government partnerships, we leverage existing local systems and resources to deliver a programme that gives the opportunity for 30-40 Mothers in rural communities to enrol on a 2-year Parenting Course run by schools and to come to the school each day in groups to assist teachers in running a Play Scheme in the KG. This programme not only improves the quality of KG education but also improves home-based care and is shown to have positive impacts on children, mothers, and the community. In Ghana, they partner with Ghana Education Service (GES) to enable GES at the District level to run and sustain the programme to a high standard in their respective districts. Lively Minds provides start-up training to each district, which includes training of KG Teachers and Head Teachers, but it is up to the districts to run and sustain.
