Located in a poor area of the city, the organisation endeavours to assist young men to stay in school while they learn life skills. Funds are raised for this by selling fair trade t-shirts printed with social and ecological justice issues. Youths earn a living while working flexible hours so that they can complete school. Shirts are sold locally and in many countries throughout the world.
Staff currently include young men who live in the urban poor communities of the capital. An estimated 40% of boys in these communities end up with drug habits as a response to the violence and destitution of their homes and neighbourhoods. This business offers opportunities for a change of direction and for new life. It needs a person with business acumen to take the company to the next level of profit, so it can increase the number of youths helped.

The successful applicant would have a relevant Sales or Marketing degree, with a minimum 2 years’ work experience plus retail/fashion experience, POS production and photoshop skills, and would be savvy with social media.
