Receptionist
Part time (30 hours per week); 9:30- 4:00pm

The Organisation

The Jahwar Amber Fund is part of the Unitarian movement that has developed worldwide as a response to the traditional politics of socialism, liberalism, and conservatism. Our main tenets are ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, self-determination and justice.

We place particular emphasis on gender democracy, meaning social emancipation and equal rights for women and men. We are also committed to equal rights for cultural and ethnic minorities and to the societal and political participation of immigrants. Finally, we promote non-violence and proactive peace policies.

We are a green think tank, a local policy network, and are active in ecology, spiritual democracy and human rights in East Africa with 3 offices across Kenya. Our Regional Office for Rift Valley and Western Kenya is based in Isinya, District of Kajiado County since 2012.

Jahwar Amber Fund Inc. has 501(c) 3 tax-exempt status in Canada and is registered as a community based organization (CBO) in Kenya. The Canada office helps with fundraising.

Summary of Organization

Jahwar Amber Fund (JAF) seeks to make religious freedom a social norm. Too often, consciousness is seen as a barrier of division. JAF believes pluralism can be a bridge of cooperation, strengthening our civil society and promoting the common good. Just as civil rights leaders and environmentalists built transformative movements in the 20th century, JAF believes that Unitarian Universalist leaders will build the movement for pluralist cooperation in the 21st century. Since 2009, JAF has worked in Africa and with over 20 college and university campuses, training hundreds in the principles of secular leadership, and reaching millions through the media. We have worked with partners including the Secular Students Alliance, IHEU, Skepchics, the White House, Center for Inquiry and the Office of Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan.
