We are delighted to announce that Child.org are now working with Ruby Cup to provide women and girls in Kenya with a sustainable menstrual hygiene solution.

Ruby Cup is a social enterprise selling menstrual cups. For every cup sold, Ruby Cup provides a cup to a woman or girl for free. Child.org is now an official partner on their ‘Buy one, give one’ programme and our team in Nairobi have received 50 menstrual cups to provide to women and girls in Meru.

The Nairobi team has developed two new projects that we intend to provide menstrual cups through: one is an adaptation of HealthStart, our school health programme, focusing on teenage girls; and the other is a project working with young mothers.  (The photo above shows Cherio, me, Doreen and Faith, receiving the cups in the Nairobi office!)

Many women and girls in Kenya are vulnerable to period poverty, leaving them exposed to exploitation and early marriage and pregnancy. The use of menstrual cups has, over time, proved a successful intervention in providing girls with an alternative to costly products or unsafe local solutions. 

We’re excited to work with such a great and proactive business and look forward to sharing more updates when the team delivers the cups to the community.

*May is Menstrual Hygiene Awareness Month so Ruby Cup are giving TWO cups for every one sold this month! 

 

If you like the way Child.org do things - then please support us. We are small and brave and we need your support to grow our impact. Join Team Mum monthly and help us build a stable future for Child.org by providing reliable funding for our work with mums and babies. Join today and we'll send you a free t-shirt!

by Amy Taylor


Our team have just launched the first ever official Horrible Histories Walking tour!

I’ve been working with a fantastic team of writers and actors to help create a hilarious experience that families are going to love. It's been wonderful to work directly with Horrible Histories and Scholastic to put this tour together, we're very proud of it. 

On the tour, families get the chance to join Horrible Histories on an interactive walking tour adventure through Loathsome London. Meg and Francis need your help to navigate city streets, sort facts from fiction and reach Shakespeare's Globe... before one of them gets the chop! You'll learn about fearsome fires, daring prison escapes, disgusting toilet habits, Blitzed Brits and some of Shakespeare's silly bits. This tour is interactive, funny and guaranteed to bring the history of London to life.

You can book places for the tour here on Airbnb. This is the ONLY official Horrible Histories walking tour - developed right here at Child.org.  Do go along, I'd love to hear what you think! I'm also offering some fantastic introductory rates for school groups, if you think your school would be interested please email me: amy@child.org

We've been working with Airbnb for a few years now to deliver a wide range of social impact experiences - all of which fund our work to keep children safe, healthy and in school. You can check out some of our other tours here, currently in London, Edinburgh and Oxford!
 

 

Announcing Laura Winter as our Ride Africa ambassador!


Posted on
10th May 2019
by Jamie Chisholm


We're thrilled to have sports presenter Laura on board to ride in November, and to help us promote Ride Africa.

Laura said, "I am so incredibly excited and grateful to be a Ride Africa ambassador, taking on November’s ride. As soon as the team got in touch, I jumped at the chance to be involved - cycling through Africa on the adventure of a lifetime, to help change the lives of women and girls? It is a no-brainer. Cycling has been life-changing for me. I have fallen in love with this sport and to use the power of turning the pedals to help others is a true privilege. 

"If you feel you can help, either through donating or signing up to the ride yourself, come join me! Together we can make a real difference."

The ride is an epic 6 day adventure challenge covering 450KM across Kenya’s breathtaking landscape, starting in Nairobi and finishing in the rural community of Meru where Child.org are funding vital pregnancy support projects. 

Ride Africa is a fully supported event, with riders being guided and motivated by Kenyan cycling legend David Kinjah, the man who discovered and mentored Chris Froome as a teenager! What appealed to Laura beyond the social impact and riding in Africa, is that this event engages a broad cross section of both experienced and less experienced riders as well as attracting at least as many women as men, all united in making a real difference. Some training is definitely required and there are both fundraising and non-fundraising options available, which both offer this life-changing experience at great value.

About Laura
Laura has always been immersed in sport, competing for 12 years in swimming, then rowing but has now found her true calling in cycling, riding many miles most weeks socially, when she’s not presenting professional cycle races from all over the world!  Through her passion for cycling, women’s sport and journalism Laura has become one of the UK’s leading ambassadors for women’s cycling. Whatever she is covering she is vivacious, caring, engaging and inspiring, so Child.org know she will be a great asset for Ride Africa and all the amazing work they do for children growing up in some of the most difficult environments in the world.

In her busiest year to date, Laura’s presenting talents are in high demand from Eurosport, BT Sport, BBC Sport and ITV Cycling across a diverse portfolio of sport which, beyond cycling, includes motorsport, cricket, rugby, swimming, rowing, netball and athletics. She is also busy hosting lots of events usually centred around championing women’s sport in some way, as well as being a founding member of Voxwomen, the first dedicated women’s cycling TV show in the world.

Laura’s ambassadorial role will see her support the marketing and communication of Ride Africa by helping with marketing content, attending events, recruiting riders and fundraising in the lead up to riding and documenting the event itself in November.

We at Child.org believe that our current Ride Africa: Kenya route is our most spectacular yet. Laura and the team of November riders will ride through National parks, past the rift valley, skirt Mount Kenya and stop for drinks at Thompson Falls. All riders are fully supported with transfers, provision of high quality mountain bikes, guides, mechanical support, medical support, food and drink stations, support vehicles and lots more.

The hotel accommodation is hand-picked for its location and hospitality, with the all-important food being exactly what’s required for hungry cyclists!

Laura and the team at Child.org are still looking for more riders to join this life-changing ride. You don’t need to be an elite cyclist, just prepared to put some training in.

Designer

Child.org are looking for a talented designer who – with support from our Comms Manager – can take visual ownership of all our programming, fundraising, product and service marketing and communications. This is no typical ‘in-house designer’ role.

Apply now
Contract 4 days per week, permanent Salary £23,000 pro rata Holiday 29 days (inc. Bank holidays) Location Old Street, London Start date ASAP Application deadline 26/05/19 – but if we find the right person before this date, we will hire them, so apply fast! Contact hello@child.org

The role

This is no typical ‘in-house designer’ role.

Child.org are looking for a talented designer who – with support from our Comms Manager – can take visual ownership of all our programming, fundraising, product and service marketing and communications.

The opportunity

A truly unique opportunity for a designer keen to advance their career – taking full ownership of exciting brands, services and communications – working for a cause that pushes the boundaries of a typical charity structure and fundraising output.

The job

Child.org has its own brand – its look and feel (colour palette, logomarks, typeface, photography style…etc.) and way we talk (strapline, tone, what we say and don’t say… etc.). We use this in our own communications, on our website, and to talk about our programming in Africa (via an annual report to our regular donors for example). We’re straight-talking, we do what works. 

We need you to ensure we keep it up, and progress our design templates.

-
We then have our fundraising campaigns and appeals. You can see our biggest and most recent appeal #TeamMum at child.org/team-mum. Here, we hired an illustrator to create a small set of brand assets (pattern/texture/mum illustrations) and a custom typeface. We then expanded this out into a full campaign including print, digital, merchandise, and event assets. 

Our next appeal will have you at the helm.

-
Another type of fundraising we promote, is via products or events. Ride Africa is a tough cycle challenge that Child.org founded and built into a successful, respected event brand. Each year we sign-up 50-150 regular folk, who are keen to challenge themselves for a good cause – and take them on a trip of a lifetime. Child.org built the Ride Africa brand from scratch. 

You will continue to push it forward – in charge of the artwork (and creative direction) of medals, T-Shirts, Cycle Jerseys, Dry bags, Route plans, website and email updates, start/finish banners… and all those future ideas of yours.

-
Finally, Child.org also has an enterprise arm – where we hatch new business ideas, whose income directly supports the charity. Spectacular Pub Quizzes and Remarkable Tours are great examples of this – where with the latter for example, we partner with the likes of Airbnb, and become a licensee of Horrible Histories to bring ‘gruesome’ walking tours to London.

This is where it gets even more exciting. As you will be the main visual support, and creator of brands and assets for all our current and future Enterprise products and services. (With some outside-hired help where you need it of course).

-
We told you it wasn’t a typical ‘in-house designer’ role.

About you

You love branding. You breathe design, and always think with digital in mind. You care about charity, and progression.

You crave responsibility and ownership of projects, and design output. You love the idea of being the only designer within the organisation. 

You like designing for a variety of things, rather than working on only one product or brand. You’re open to new tools and processes that may make collaborating with the team easier.

You are skilled in, and are comfortable with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. You may know Adobe XD (or Sketch), and are used to collaborative work tools such as GoogleDrive, Dropbox and Slack.

You have a passion for getting better with words, copywriting and communications.

You understand the power of great design.

You'll be really good at

  • Being a brand ambassador. Ensuring each of our products and services remain respectively on-brand.
  • Quality Assurance. You’ll want to ensure that every communication – whether it be an Instagram story, tote bag swag, or an all encompassing event set-up – is top notch in terms of design and proofing.
  • Ideas. You’ll love working with our Comms Manager to come up with campaign, brand, or event ideas.
  • Print design. You’ll know all about CMYK, Bleed, and image resolution. You’ll be confident in laying out a brochure, business card, or roller banner, and have your own preferences about which stock to use.
  • Digital design. You’ll know the difference between bitmap and vector, and when to use each. You’ll feel confident in creating social media assets, fliers, and website imagery.
  • Web and UI design. You may or may not be a pro, but you’ll at least be comfortable designing and editing within Squarespace, and not be afraid of creating a new website design from scratch.
  • Creating (and maintaining) brand assets. Many of our products and services already have a brand language in place – you’ll know how to respect it, upkeep it, and even improve on it. 
  • Photo editing. We get so many potentially great images from donors, fundraisers, partners etc. but the majority just need those shadows brought up, exposure or colour balance tweaked. Even if you just get to grips with the ‘Auto’ button in Adobe Lightroom… you’ll keep us all on track with our creative output.
  • Working as part of a team. Although you will be responsible for how all comms look and feel, you’ll respect your teams opinions and support them in their own product’s vision.

Things we all do

  • Attend events as required
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of our work 
  • Do any other reasonable things your manager needs you to do
  • Engage with the team, and directly with our supporters

Applying for the role

Required experience

You must have previous experience of working within an agency, or organisation. (With you being the only designer on board, we cannot offer in-house design training). 

You must be able to show us a portfolio of your work, that proves your understanding of good, considered design. (We can only hope that your appreciation of white-space, is something that the entire team can learn from). 

You must be able to work with, and manipulate pre-existing work across Illustrator and InDesign – and preferably be comfortable enough with Photoshop and Lightroom.

Application guidance

We’re keen to find the right designer for our organisation. Tell us why you’re a good fit, and impress us with your attention to detail and broad understanding of communications. 

We know that we’re asking for a lot – so don’t be scared to tell us what you’re NOT so comfortable or skilled in too. We will be organising a handover from our previous Head of Creative, Naomi, and can offer some monthly support from her in the short-term.

This is a big, exciting role. An opportunity to dive right into some wonderful, rewarding work. On a 4-day week to boot. 

Your portfolio will thank you.

Meet Donata


Posted on
18th Apr 2019
by Ellie Dawes


Donata's style of motherhood is one of determination and resilience. She's one of our personal heroes.

Donata lives in rural Kenya with her two children, Maxwell and Victor. She was married at 19 and had her first baby, Maxwell when she was 20. The pregnancy was unexpected -Donata was relieved that her parents were supportive, but  told us that having a baby so young made her feel lost. She would go to local antenatal clinics, but she would often have to wait from morning until evening to see a doctor. Sometimes she would wait all day only to be told to return again the next day.

Donata felt shy and unprepared for motherhood, she says no-one advised her what to buy or how to prepare for the birth. When Donata went into labour, she didn’t recognise it and thought she was just in pain.  She gave birth to Maxwell in the local hospital where staff were stressed and rude - and the hospital was very busy and overstretched.

Donata’s husband suddenly left the family when she was two months pregnant with their second son, Victor. She felt extremely stressed as without any financial contribution from him, she was reliant on her own income. After her first experience, Donata was determined not to return to the same clinic to give birth, so she continued to work hard as a hairdresser through her pregnancy, raising enough money to have Victor in a private hospital. This was extremely expensive for her, but despite birth complications and financial worries she preferred giving birth in the private clinic. Since he left, Donata’s husband has not contacted her or visited Victor. 

Donata told us that her greatest hope is to encourage more young women in her area to get an education and a job before falling pregnant and getting married, so they have more independence.  Donata is enrolled in a local Child.org nutritional training programme, and she told us that being part of this community of women helped her to find meaning in life again after her husband left.  

Donata would love to see Team Mum pregnant women’s groups in her area, providing support and important health advice for scared young mums who are in the same position she was in. That's why she's shared her story to support the Team Mum campaign.

If you donate to Team Mum before 30 April, your donation will be matched by the UK government. That means we can reach twice as many frightened new mums like Donata once was, and connect them to a community of strong and experienced women like Donata is today.

Child.org Head of Fundraising & Marketing

Child.org are looking for an ambitious leader to grow our fundraising income in this new senior role. Be the force behind our disruptive presence and help the team achieve great things.

Apply now
Contract Full time, permanent Salary £39,000 - £42,350 Holiday 28 days + bank holidays Location Old Street, London Start date ASAP Application deadline 16/05/2019 - but if we find the right person before this date, we will hire them, so apply fast! Contact hello@child.org

The role

Child.org are looking for an ambitious leader to grow our fundraising income in this new senior role. Be the force behind our disruptive presence and help the team achieve great things

The opportunity

For someone keen to show their capabilities in the sector, this role is a dream opportunity. You’re joining a hugely ambitious organisation, unencumbered by old ways of thinking, ready to innovate and flexible enough to be moulded. If you are someone who wants to put their stamp on something and shape it, this is your chance.

With a heavy focus on continually improving the impact of our programming work, we’ve invested in our Nairobi team, and run fantastic programmes in Kenya and Sierra Leone that improve the lives of children. We’ve been shifting to a place where we invest in new innovative approaches that need testing and piloting, in order to identify where scaling our activity could have a real impact. That makes us an exciting organisation to support. 

We've got good foundations in some core fundraising areas. We run a high-quality, gruelling bike ride in Sub-Saharan Africa. We've also created a regular giving plan based on 0% of your money going to Africa because we invest it in enterprise activity first, to build diverse, sustainable income streams. We like to push the boundaries with what we do. The quality of what we produce, and the relationships we build set us apart. Take a look at our Team Mum campaign – supported by UK Aid Match – to see the type of quality comms we strive for. 

Beyond corporate partnerships and challenge events, broader fundraising is relatively new to us. This role offers an opportunity to enhance what we already do well and, crucially, drive forward new fundraising income streams.

You'll need to come with a good understanding of the importance of brand and how it underpins great fundraising. What we say and do comes from a clear understanding of our approach and a commitment to our values. As we grow our marketing activity it will be important to remain true to who we are and what we believe, for example, we don't hide admin costs at Child.org - we're proud of them and what they allow us to achieve.

The job

We are driven by our mission. We know that to have the greatest impact possible, it is essential our programmes have the resource to make good stuff happen. We approach income generation across three areas: Fundraising, Grants and Enterprise. Enterprise is our heartland and our Grants strategy, sitting within our programming team, is moving fast.

Your role will focus on the fundraising element of our income generation strategy. Working collaboratively with the Enterprise and Grants team, you will lead on developing a contemporary Fundraising strategy, drawing on our powerful brand, exciting products and capable team. We're looking for someone who can bring in quick wins to boost income now whilst delivering long-term growth over time.

Underpinning your Fundraising strategy will be a clear, coherent marketing & communications approach. The primary focus here is to extend our reach and mobilise greater financial return.

You’ll need to do all this with a limited budget, tiny supporter database and no magic wand. But you will have an organisation ready to back you and a team bursting with ideas, drive and the capacity to make amazing things happen.

You

Our leaders need to be inspirational, bringing enthusiasm, energy and conviction – to lead by doing, not just saying.  Child.org is an ambitious organisation that thrives on action.

We need someone who will take this on and doesn’t need hand holding through it. Be someone who identifies strengths in their team and empowers them to make it happen. 

We need someone who builds great relationships with partners and supporters. The Child.org family is small and strong, built on warm, open relationships and a desire to have an impact. 

We need someone who relishes working a room of potential contacts - who comes in prepared, with clear objectives and a targeted list to focus on. You need to be opening doors for the organisation and making connections. You need to hustle.

Everything Child.org does – it tries to be smart and savvy about it. Whether it’s our programming, our fundraising, or the business models that power our enterprise products, we do things with a sharpness and a commercial understanding of how to provide value to everyone involved.  You’ll need to bring that kind of value with you. You need to be walking in the door excited about the opportunities you can open up for us.

If making your mark on this sector is important to you, if you’re ready to be part of real change, then give us a call and lets have a chat about how you think you might be able to make that happen.

Why I'm taking on Ride Africa


Posted on
02nd Apr 2019
by Cherio Onacha


I have never ridden a bike in my adult life.

...in fact I have only two memories of me cycling. One was as a twelve year old trying to ride a black mamba bicycle. This is a bike obviously meant for grown people because of its height, but as children we had our creative ways to make this work for us. I do not think I can try any of those gymnastics now, but trust me I was a pro of my time! 

Good times!

Cycling bears all sorts of  nostalgic memories for me. Aside from my pre-teen excursions, my other fondest memory of me on a bicycle was when I was about 4-5 years old. My father would carry me on his bicycle to his place of work over the weekend.

This was in no way a hobby of his, it was just the only means of transport available to us - we have come a long way! I looked forward to these rides nonetheless. I remember him asking me to wrap my little hands around his waist for support, but my tiny hands couldn’t cover the circumference so I held on tightly to his shirt and rested the side of my face on his back. The feeling was priceless! 

I have nothing but good memories of cycling and I guess that is why my excitement to do Child.org’s all women’s ride in July comes as no surprise. I really do look forward to reliving my childhood memories and making new ones with all the wonderful and inspirational women I hope to meet on the ride.

This ride will require a lot of brevity, patience, endurance, faith and resilience from me. I believe that it is no coincidence that this mirrors the season I am currently going through in my life. My husband and I have struggled with infertility for coming close to three years now. It has been a rollercoaster of negative pregnancy tests, tonnes of supplements, endless doctors appointments, blood draws and scans with our hopes of being parents still a distance afar.

On very many occasions we have questioned everything that we believe in. Making babies is loads of  fun for many people, why is it not for us?why does it have to involve this amount of heartache, self doubt, anxiety and a deep into our pocket? In moments like this, it is very easy to drown yourself in self pity. I am not in any way trying to negate the gravity of our pain (because, trust me, it hurts) but with the amazing support I have continued to receive  from people around me in this season, my strife has been to remain positive, hopeful, and to continually give purpose to my pain. 

This then brings me to the main reason why I am doing Ride Africa, cycling from Nairobi to Meru over 6 days in July. As difficult as this journey has been for me, I am abundantly blessed. I am surrounded by a loving family that has stood by all the decisions we have had to make. I have an understanding work environment at Child.org that is accomodative to all the time off I have to take for my clinic appointments. I also have access to health information that has helped me understand our condition better, and financial resources to afford decent healthcare. Besides this, I am part of very many networks of women across the world who are currently going through this or have gone through this and overcome. The support has been incredible! Not for one second have I felt like I have to do this on my own. I will be forever grateful for this!

I cannot then even begin to imagine the isolation that a woman like me in rural Kenya, with very basic education, no family support, no financial resources or access to proper health care is going through. A woman who has struggled so hard to conceive, feeling hopeless at her inability to protect this very pregnancy that she has worked so hard for.

I have loved my child even as an idea. Deep in my heart I know I will do everything to protect them to ensure that they have a chance at life because they are already loved and wanted. If my circumstances meant that I could not realise any of these dreams for my child I would be shattered. The women we hope to work with in Meru, Kenya do not have the luxury of any of these dreams I have for my unborn child. Their circumstances make it impossible!  I am doing this ride for these women because I believe in their dreams, and I believe that in my small way I can make their dreams a reality.

I get so emotional every time I look at this picture of Winfred and her baby!

Please join Marti and I to make my journey count, by donating to this cause. I am hoping to raise £4,000 for Team Mum - enough to launch four support groups for new mums. Through these groups, new mums will be armed with the information they need to keep themselves and their babies safe during pregnancy, delivery and the early months of their babies lives. Help me make the dreams of these mothers a reality, they do not ever have to feel  alone!

If you are in the UK and give before 30 April, your donation will be doubled by the UK government.
