Job Description

NCBA CLUSA is currently seeking 2 (1- remote US volunteer and 1- volunteer based in Ecuador) qualified Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer candidates for the position of Grants Manager to support Empresa Pública Municipal Cacao Orgánico Shuar Taisha (EPMCOST), based in Taisha, Ecuador .

EPMCOST was founded in 2017 with the goal to support cacao growers and eliminate intermediaries to find a fair price for the growers’ products.

While they have grown since 2017, the COVID pandemic has slowed this growth. EPMCOST collects the organic cacao beans from its members and transforms them into artisanal cacao paste and cacao powder.

EPMCOST also provides training to its entrepreneurs, a majority of whom (2 / 3) are women. EPMCOST also empowers youths, who make up around half of the organization.

By including these vital groups, EPMCOST works towards its mission of promoting the socio-economic development of its members.

However, EPMCOST’s members do not have enough economic resources to maintain the organization’s functions. They hope to find and apply to grants in order to continue working towards their goals.

EPMCOST has applied to 2 grants, both of which were rejected on grounds of not meeting the requirements, much to the confusion of the applicants.

EPMCOST members view grant opportunities as critical to continuing their operations, so members need to receive training on understanding and successfully applying to grant opportunities.

Duration : 2 Weeks (September November 2021)
