The Power of Nutrition’s vision is a world where every child has the right nutrition to achieve their full potential. Our purpose is to raise money and create partnerships to advance the fight against malnutrition in Africa and Asia.
By the end of 2022, we will have helped prevent 600,000 cases of stunting, achieving our headline target several years early, through funding and overseeing ng 18 large-scale nutrition programmes in 13 countries.
The Power of Nutrition is a unique partnership platform that brings together various organisations to help plug this gap and run best-practice nutrition programmes at scale. We work with investors including the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation , UBS Optimus Foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and donor governments including the UK, Ireland and Australia; as well as implementing partners including The World Bank, Islamic Development Bank , UNICEF, World Food Programme and a range of international NGOs.
This is an exciting time to join The Power of Nutrition. You will play a critical role delivering our new Strategy for 2022-5 – Transforming global nutrition financing, together – which sees the organisation go beyond stunting to tackle all forms of malnutrition (stunting, wasting, micronutrient deficiency, overweight and obesity) in high-risk countries, expand into innovative financing and become more of a public good for global nutrition and a tenacious sector champion.
Do you want to help prevent an additional 800,000 cases of stunting, 450,000 cases of maternal anaemia and 17,000 deaths of under-5s by 2025? We’re looking for passionate, committed, highly-qualified people to join us on this exciting and critical journey.
