Kaya ChildCare Job Vacancy : ChildCare Centre Manager – Jobs in Ghana

DESCRIPTION

Kaya ChildCare is a social enterprise aimed at reducing the health and security risks faced by babies and infants of head porters (locally known as kayayoo) in markets in Accra, Ghana, by providing them with an early childhood centre that uses the learning-through-play model to aid their development. Several initiatives in an attempt to eradicate the head porterage profession have failed to address the effects of this phenomenon on the vulnerable child. Kaya Childcare provides the kayayo mother peace of mind, while they go about their daily hard-laboured work, knowing that their child is safe and is receiving good quality childcare and education, which every child has the right to.

As an organization, we are looking for individuals to join us in this initiative. To this end, we seek individuals who share our vision and are aligned with our core values: respect, community, collaboration, creativity and play. They underline our work, how we interact with the community we serve, which strategies we employ to fulfil our mission and inherently play a crucial part in the selection process.
