DKT International is seeking a Grants Coordinator.
Open Until Filled, Interviews to start April 1st, 2019
The Grants Coordinator plays a key role in the stewardship of existing grants, and is responsible for the effective management of the DKT FWACA grant portfolio. This role will serve as internal coordinator of all grant reporting, and monthly recording of success against objectives. The Grants Coordinator proactively develops strong relationships with key staff across teams at DKT FWACA to ensure authentic and compelling reports, and facilitate appropriate grant submission, spending, and reporting, which contributes to high-quality stewardship with DKT FWACA funders.
The Grants Coordinator reports to the Regional Programmes Manager—this is a mid-level role for a go-getter that is keen on some high level international development experience. Depending on experience, this role could evolve into senior level management of all donor relations.
DKT International is a registered, non-profit organization founded in 1989 to focus the power of social marketing on some of the largest countries with the greatest needs for family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention and safe abortion. By doing so, DKT has achieved tremendous health impact, and done it cost-efficiently. Although we work mostly in the private sector, we also support the public sector, often partnering with government health facilities to reach the total market.
Scale: DKT is one of the largest private providers of family planning products in the world, having generated over 36 million couple years of protection (CYPs) in 2017. Five of the ten largest contraceptive social marketing programs in the world are DKT programs. As of 2017, DKT has offices in 24 countries, with a sales presence in 42 countries.
Business-oriented NGO: DKT is an NGO that thinks like a business: We use business skills to address social ills, namely maternal and child mortality and HIV/AIDS. We create brands of contraceptives and other health products to advertise and sell as consumer goods. We have found that this approach inspires more people to use contraception, as many people prefer to access these services through the private sector.
Significant cost-recovery: We recover a significant portion of our expenses through sales: Revenue from products and services covers approximately 70% of our operating costs. This insulates us from changing political climates and donor funding priorities, and gives us increased autonomy. Each year, our donor cost per CYP hovers around the $2.00 mark. This low cost per CYP is made possible through our most sustainable programs — including Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico and the Philippines — as well as our low overhead costs.
