Digital Fundraising & Engagement Manager

Department: Development
Location: Remote

Organization Description

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is a global leader in the protection of unaccompanied refugee and migrant children. Launched in 2008, KIND champions a world in which every childís rights and well-being are protected throughout their journey to safety. Since 2008, KIND has accepted over 29,000 referrals of children seeking legal representation in their immigration proceedings. KIND has welcomed more than 49,000 attendees to trainings since its founding, cultivating partnerships with over 740 law firms, corporate legal departments, law schools, and bar associations across the country.

KINDís social services program ensures that migrant and refugee children Ė who have often endured trauma Ė receive counseling, educational support, medical care and other comprehensive services.

To address the root causes of child migration from Central America and strengthen protection of unaccompanied children, KIND advocates for policy changes and educates lawmakers, the media, and the broader public on the conditions that drive these children to flee their home countries. KIND supports children returning to their home countries by connecting them to essential support services and sponsors gender-based violence prevention programs in Central America to protect children in countries of origin and transit.

KIND is also building upon its expertise in the protection of unaccompanied children to encourage the development of pro bono initiatives across Europe in partnership with European NGOs.
