Link Community Development is a family of organisations working in Malawi as well as Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda and Uganda. Link Community Development International, based in the UK, provides support with programme and finance management, governance, communications and fundraising.
Link Community Development believes that a child, vulnerable adult or person at risk should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to work in a way that promotes the welfare of all and protects them from harm. We have a zero tolerance approach to any harm to or exploitation of a child or vulnerable adult by any of our staff, representatives or partners.
Link Community Development Malawi (Link Malawi) works to improve access to and the quality of education in Malawi. Since 2008, we have delivered community-based school improvement projects focused on those suffering the highest economic, social and educational marginalisation. We work closely with the Government of Malawi, supported the development of the National Education Standards, and have delivered our inclusive school improvement process in over 500 schools and communities. Our ambitious new programme is improving learning and life chances for 5,000 adolescent girls who have never attended or dropped out of school and face complex, intersecting barriers to education.
The Country Director will be responsible for the continued delivery of Link Malawi’s strategy and programmes as an implementing partner of Link International, ensuring that the country programme remains focused on and aligned with Link’s core model and the education policies of the Government of Malawi. In addition, the post-holder will identify and pursue opportunities for Link Malawi to grow nationally. Travel within Malawi and some travel to partner countries is required.
