Full Job Description

Building Education’s Vision and Mission

Building Education is a For-Purpose Organization 501(c)3 that provides funding for education in developing countries in efforts to end poverty.

Our Mission is to end the cycle of poverty through the empowerment of education.

Our Vision is to transform all lives that touch these projects, changing the way that we see ourselves in the world, creating leaders in the community, developing villages by uplifting the lives of others.

In collaboration with the government, partner organizations and local schools we aim to transform rural villages into prosperous, dignified communities.

We believe in a world where every child has an equal opportunity to education. We build schools to make education accessible, provide scholarships and empower children to become contributing members of society. Education creates a ripple effect wherein the empowered members can lift their village out of poverty through economic activities.

Leaders create leaders. We help villagers to attain self-realization through relevant skills and better employment prospects. With our mentorship, beneficiaries participate in vocational training and awareness programs. They feel empowered to change their lives by starting sustainable social enterprises.

Our focus is to revolutionize through sustainability. We work in rural villages to create hubs that include schools, farmers’ markets, healthcare and resource centers. This provides rural communities better living through access to water and clean energy.

Our long-term vision is to scale. By taking on more projects and scaling across rural Nepal, we transform lives by changing the way the underprivileged see themselves in the world. We create community leaders that stimulate economic growth to develop their villages.

Position Summary:

We are looking for a dynamic and dedicated Event Planner/Coordinator to join our Team. We are poised for exponential growth as we work to expand our donor and sponsor network. This role will be responsible for planning and coordinating our events.
