WRBLO wants to add value to an amazing initiative being delivered by a 'not for profit' hospital that provides an exceptional model of healthcare that could be the ideal model for Sub-Saharan Africa. Will you help us?

What will you be doing?

WRBLO is an intermediary organisation that financially supports small charities and NGO’s ensconced in Sub-Saharan Africa implementing and delivering vital projects and services for the public benefit necessitated by the specific needs of those communities they serve.

WRBLO leverages goodwill of a collective of integral, dynamic social investors with whom we share a common desire to place social capital and community development on a par with their financial success. WRBLO raises funding through donations and sponsorship, that we deliver through grant-funding into innovative charitable organisations, delivering sustainable social change, that produces economic growth from the grassroots. 

WRBLO verify, evaluate, and monitor sustainable projects, services and business opportunities that we identify as drivers of social development and financial inclusion and that can revive economic growth through dynamic integral social investment at  ‘ground zero of poverty’, free of bureaucratic or political interference and the nefarious forces of corruption, fraud or financial mismanagement. 

Our Programme targets resources into small charities and NGO’s who implement projects and services in seven [broad] areas :

  • Poverty
  • General Healthcare 
  • Community Development 
  • Community Cohesion
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Local Agriculture
  • Local Business Enterprise

WRBLO are especially concerned about three core issues:

  • Orphanages
  • Slums
  • Access to insurance

We are seeking a team leader with knowledge, expertise and vision that can contribute value to the real aspiration of access to affordable health insurance and socially responsible financial services as a combined concept in partnership with a exceptional hospital providing excellent medical care, as well as a low-cost insurance premium.

COVID has made life difficult for the hospital and we seek to assist them by coming up with a workable strategy that will assist them to retain its current premium base of 50,000 people, grown over 20 years and prevent the need for a rise in premium costs and co-payments. We believe that a solution could involve the incorporation of a hybrid, digital peer to peer rotating savings and rolling pay-out as a bolted-on financial benefit into their current scheme?

What are we looking for?

A leading data analytics, surveillance, and risk monitoring expert with experience in the financial services industry and passionate about combining strong technical capabilities with an intimate knowledge of financial services and particularly insurance. However, these qualifications will only assist us if the candidate can think and deliver ‘outside the box’ of conventional thinking and able to project manage, model, and develop the combination of the two concepts (low-cost premiums with co-payments and rotating savings and rolling pay-outs) to the point of implementation.

Is this you?

What difference will you make?

Much of the African continent is beleaguered with deeply rooted and complex issues which combined have produced enduring, abject, and endemic poverty, irrespective of Africa's natural and considerable deposits of valuable minerals and tradable commodities. as well as any enduring political stability. 

WRBLO will begin work in Uganda, being 1 of 6 politically stable jurisdictions where approximately 54% of their combined populations represent 20% of the world's poorest people.

Our Specialised Social Responsibility Programme (SSR) will holistically support this hospital who has an extensive and ongoing track record of accomplishment, working in Deprived Communities.

WRBLO wants to begin making a real difference and will invite other charitable organisations to apply for the funding they need to expand the delivery of effective and sustainable programmes vital to the communities they serve. 

WRBLO wants to add intrinsic and maximum IMPACT by supporting local charitable structures who are unable to access much-needed funding in support of the work they do within Deprived Communities.

What's in it for the volunteer?

If you are seeking an opportunity to make a real and sustainable difference, by raising very many out of poverty onto a path to sustainable futures and to be assistive to those who long to be valued members of society, working with us will provide you with that accomplishment and the true satisfaction in knowing you have contributed to such positive impact and societal change in Africa.

International travel and in-country project management posts are eventually to be offered to candidates who volunteer for this role.
