Job Openings at SKS Foundation, Hyderabad, India

There are currently two openings at SKS Foundation that we thought our readers might be interested in: 1) Summer Intern at the Ultra Poor Program and 2) Program Director.  First, here is a brief description of SKS Foundation:

The SKS Ultra Poor Program, modeled after the highly successful BRAC program in Bangladesh, attacks the challenge of extreme poverty on three levels: economic, social and health, and aims to graduate clients into being able to run a sustainable income-generating enterprise—and potentially into mainstream microfinance.
