    • Project Management
    • Monitoring and Evaluation
    • Background in the Faith Based sector

The candidates must reside in any of the three provinces that the Ukusekela SPSF is implemented in (Kwa Zulu Natal, Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga). They must be able to reflect objectively and have high ethical standards as they will be responsible for reviewing and selecting the initiatives and/or organizations that will be funded under this grant. The Approval’s Committee will be required to meet 3-4 times a year and avail a minimum of 8 hours a month for a period of 12 months to engage virtually within the 2022/2023 financial year. Terms of reference and an information pack are available on request outlining the project background for the Ukusekela SPSF.
