Women & Children Project Manager: Global Aid Network (Power To Change) – Langley, BC

 

Women & Children Project Manager

Position Type: Full-Time
Job Region/Location: Langley, BC; Power To Change National Headquarters
Reporting Relationship: Chief Operations Officer
Funding: Ministry Partner Development
Application Deadline: Ongoing

 

Ministry Overview

Power to Change (P2C) seeks to help people know Jesus and experience His power to change the world.  We envision millions of volunteers engaged in faith adventures that transform lives through the power of the gospel.  

 

Global Aid Network (GAiN) demonstrates the love of God in word and deed, to hurting and needy people around the world through relief and development projects.  GAiN does this through three key initiatives; providing clean water through the Water for Life Initiative, caring for the needs of the most vulnerable in the area of Women and Children and responding to immediate and ongoing needs after a crisis through Relief and Development.

The suffering of women & children produces an immediate heart cry in most people worldwide.  When a child remains in need, not only is his present life but also his future subjected to heartache. Emotional trauma caused by suffering can gouge a deep scar in children, stunting their ability to give and receive love, and believe that they are precious creations with significant roles to play in their nations’ futures. At the same time, women of all ages quite often are treated as second class during times of natural disasters and humanitarian crises.

 

Position Overview

The Project Manager for Women & Children will manage and coordinate a caseload of projects focused in the area of Women & Children.  Currently this caseload includes GAiN’s partnership with Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission in India as well as GAiN’s Upendo Orphanage in Tanzania.  The Project Manager for Women & Children may also contribute to other GAiN projects as women and children are recipients of each initiative GAiN is operating in.
