Partnership manager at CHANCEN International (Deadline: 30th March,2022)

šŸ˜ļø About the Organization and Job Details

The Organization

CHANCEN International

CHANCEN International is a non-profit organization that provides an ethical, fair, and

responsible financing model for young people in Africa to access quality tertiary

education. This financing model is called an Income Share Agreement (ISA) and was

tried and tested for 20 years in Germany before being launched in East Africa in 2018.

With an ISA financing model, CHANCEN International pays tuition fees during

beneficiaries’ tenure of their studies, and graduates pay them back according to their

income at the end of their studies, thus making it possible to finance the next

generation of students. CHANCEN administrative base is located in Kigali, Rwanda,

and in its first two years of financing operations, more than 1300 young people

accessed funds for their tertiary education.

CHANCEN believes that young Africans are ready to take on the problems that have to

hold their continent back if they are fairly and responsibly empowered. Education is

one of the vehicles for harnessing that potential, and we work to create equal access to

high-quality tertiary education for traditionally excluded populations. Our unique and

innovative model of responsible and sustainable financing has the power to unleash

intergenerational economic mobility for marginalized youth as they gain the skills

required to participate in building strong economies and peaceful nations.

CHANCEN International’s next phase of growth comes with the launch of the Future of

Work Fund which provides a blended investment opportunity for investors who want

to ensure that the next generation of youth in Africa acquire employable skills and move into gainful employment. Our Income Share Agreement model has ensured students were able to continue their education to employment journey in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis and the demand from both students and partner institutions have seen a sharp increase in recent months due to reduction in household income and the ability for excluded youth to pay for education. CHANCEN International is seeking to raise $6M by the close of 2020 to advance our goal of serving 10,000 students in Rwanda, South Africa and Kenya by 2023. Our 25-year-old financial instrument provides a blended investment option with 5% return on debt for a 6year term as well as the option to make catalytic equity.
