Adara Development (Australia)
Deadline: Sunday 22 July 2018

  • Are you a Monitoring and Evaluation expert passionate about making a difference for women and children?
  • Are you looking for a challenging, wide ranging and rewarding role?
  • Would you like to take a management role in an INGO and leading ‘business for purpose’?

If so, we want to hear from you!

The Adara Group is seeking an experienced, energetic and dedicated individual to be part our programmes team and lead our monitoring, evaluation and learning stream of work.

The Adara Group has two quite different parts, but one united purpose – to support people in poverty. The first part is an international development organisation, made up of non-profit companies and trusts spanning six countries, called Adara Development. The second part is two Australia-based corporate advisory businesses, Adara Advisors and Adara Partners. Adara Advisors is a BCorp.

The Adara businesses are ‘for purpose’ rather than for profit. Their sole objective is to fund Adara Development’s administration and emergency project costs. This allows 100% of all other donations received by Adara Development to go directly to project-related costs.

Adara was established in 1997 and is focused on improving health and education for women, children and communities living in poverty. We are experts in maternal, newborn, child health, and remote community development. We reach tens of thousands of people living in poverty each year.

The Adara Group has operations in six countries – Australia, Nepal, Uganda, USA, Bermuda and UK. We implement country programmes in Nepal and Uganda. In Nepal, the Adara programmes are in the Himalayan Mountains of the Humla and Ghyangfedi regions and the capital city of Kathmandu. In Uganda, our work is focused in the rural Nakaseke District.
