1. Job Title: Human Resource Manager

Over 250 million children under 5 globally do not get the early childhood care and education (ECCE) they need, leading to poor health, porr education, lost life opportunities and poverty. Lively Minds is an award-winning NGO tackling this crisis in rural Ghana & Uganda. We believe that one of the main barriers to ECCE is that parents in remote resource-poor villages lack the information, education and aspiration to provide basic and affordable opportunities for their children. We have developed an innovative behavior-change programme that empowers marginalized, poorly educated Mothers to run educational Play Schemes for pre-schoolers and to provide better home-based care, using cheap local resources.  Not only does this result in positive outcomes for child development, but also has positive impacts for the Mothers too. These are exciting times for Lively Minds. In Ghana we have recently received results from a Randomised Control Trial (RCT) conducted by independent evaluators Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) and Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) which demonstrate the programme has a positive impact on a wide range of child and mother outcomes. The Ministry of Education (MOE) and Ghana Education Service (GES) have now signed an MOU with Lively Minds to parter to scale up the programme. We are now working with National Government and other stakeholders in developing our 2020-2025 plans to scale the programme across 60 rural districts in the northern regions of the country, reaching approximately 4000 kindergartens.  During this period, Lively Minds will act as technical consultants ensuring Districts embed and sustain the programme. Elsewhere, our programme in Uganda is in a test and position for scale stage with the long-term aim of national roll- out. Our long-term goal is for the programme to be adopted in several countries in the developing world so that it can have a large impact in tackling the global early childhood development crisis.
