Receptionist Job in Nairobi Kenya – Non Profit Firm

Dynamic Nonprofit Seeks Receptionist

Position Offered: Receptionist – Part time (30 hours per week); 9:30- 4:00pm

Position Available: Immediately

Summary of Organization

Jahwar Amber Fellowship Fund (JAF) seeks to make religious freedom a social norm. Too often, consciousness is seen as a barrier of division. JAF believes pluralism can be a bridge of cooperation, strengthening our civil society and promoting the common good. 
Just as civil rights leaders and environmentalists built transformative movements in the 20th century, JAF believes that Unitarian Universalist leaders will build the movement for pluralist cooperation in the 21st century.

Since 2009, JAF has worked in Africa and with over 20 college and university campuses, training hundreds in the principles of secular leadership, and reaching millions through the media. 

We have worked with partners including the Secular Students Alliance, IHEU, Skepchics, the White House, Center for Inquiry and the Office of Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan.
