Current Opportunities 

Adminstrative Officer

 

Gabriel Project Mumbai (GPM) is an NGO working with local communities in India, using a holistic approach to community development in order to address root causes of poverty. Through a grassroots approach, we work with underserved populations to create comprehensive programs that tackle the most pressing issues affecting the community on a daily basis.  Our staff in India is comprised of members of the local communities in which we work.

 
Founded in 2012, GPM believes in the integration of quality education, accessible healthcare, good nutrition, and sustainable livelihoods (UN Sustainable Development Goals #2, 3, 4 and 8).  We work with historically marginalized communities in both urban and rural settings to shift the existing paradigm of extreme poverty and to transform vulnerable communities into thriving ones.  Our goal is to invest in and support ambitious and socially minded local individuals to lead their community development initiatives through our programs.


Entering its 10th year of operation, GPM is on the cusp of a coordinated growth and expansion.  With the help of dedicated staff and passionate volunteer leadership, this expansion requires an equally passionate Administrative Officer to maintain organizational efficacy.

This is a daily half-time position (~20 hours per week) with the opportunity to become full time and will report to the Founding Director.

Location: Israel (the position is mostly remote but at least one day a week in Tel Aviv office)
