Job Overview:

Are you interested in leading an innovative and collaborative initiative for impact assessment in the social sector? Join us at Nourishing Schools Foundation in our mission to develop young changemakers who can take charge of their own nutrition and that of their communities.

To help tackle malnutrition, our Foundation’s approach is to provide a toolkit (a box of games and activities) that enables schools to involve children in tackling malnutrition. In collaboration with various partners, we collect data before and after rolling out the toolkit in schools, to assess the needs of our target groups and to monitor impact.

We have partnered with organizations such as Lend-A-Hand India, Swayam Shikshan Prayog and Farm2Food Foundation to roll out our programme in Maharashtra, Assam & Rajasthan, covering over 200 schools in India, reaching over 40,000 schoolchildren.

We are looking to develop new ways of managing, analyzing and sharing the data from our impact assessment work, so that we may share it with a wider audience. We believe that the insights from our impact assessment work can help inform the work in the sector. We want to make significant contributions to the knowledge and best practices in this space. We are looking for a passionate and experienced individual who can work with us to achieve this.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Update and manage the standard operating procedure for data collection, analysis and reporting

  • Assistance with the rollout of the Nourishing Schools toolkit
  • Prepare data-related content for proposals, reports and other relevant documents as required for existing and new grantors
