Grants Officer – AmplifyChange

Full Time FTC to July 2025

Overview

Since our inception in 2014, AmplifyChange has established a unique place within the global sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) architecture. No other platform specifically supporting civil society SRHR advocacy has our reach or range. AmplifyChange supports advocacy especially on the sensitive and neglected issues of SRHR. We reach groups in countries that face the biggest challenges. Many of the grassroots groups supported by us have never previously received funding from other donors.

But AmplifyChange is more than a fund. We strengthen and support organisations which we fund so they have a lasting and sustainable impact in their communities. We also build connections and solidarity among AmplifyChange partners which allows peer learning and support.

In 2020, AmplifyChange registered as an independent not-for-profit organisation, and started transitioning from a donor-funded project to an independent entity.
