The Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) Empowerment for Poverty Reduction Program is an innovative initiative that contributes in a comprehensive manner to lift people out of poverty. The Program is derived from the existing IsDB NGO Program, analysis of IsDB Engagement with Civil Society and Strategy of Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development (ISFD). It is aligned with the inclusive social development pillar of the Bank’s 10-Year Strategy and the President 5-Year Program (P5P), which calls for more participation of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) as a network of developers. The Program will support Member Countries (MCs) to attain the targets of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is also grounded in the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, UNDP Digital Strategy, UNDP’s Strategic Plan 2018–2021, and UNDP’s ongoing work to address the challenges in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region and in other regions as well, based on the work of UNDP Alternative Finance Lab which is a part of UNDP Innovation Team.
A key part of the project is the design, development and implementation of the Tadamon platform – an aggregating platform for crowdfunding campaigns for CSOs, and creation of Tadamon Digital Crowdfunding Academy, online training for NGOs/CSOs and UNDP Country Offices.
By linking numerous crowdfunding campaigns from CSOs supported through the Program and through partnering organizations and crowdfunding platforms, TADAMON will ease the CSOs access to finance for their development and humanitarian activities
The platform provides the look-and-feel of the web and supports aggregating functionalities while displaying the content in organized, attractive and user-friendly manner. An aggregator website is used as a site that collects data and crowdfunding campaigns from other sources across the internet (e.g. crowdfunding platforms) and puts the information in one place where users can access it. It is used as a tool for communication and collaboration between the stakeholders for the sharing of expertise, knowledge and resources.
In this context, we are looking for “Website Developer Analyst” who will, under the guidance of the Project Coordinator, support the “NGO Empowerment” project through communication and close cooperation with Website and Graphic Design Expert .
