New Incentives is the world’s first and only nonprofit dedicated to Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs). CCTs are small, predictable sums of money that individuals in need can earn after meeting various education and health benchmarks such as school attendance or clinic visits. In the case of New Incentives, your donation gives poor women with HIV or at-risk pregnancies in rural West Africa small stipends on the condition that they deliver at a health clinic and get required medications. The stipends allow the women to afford food, transport and other basic services. Hence, the CCTs not only prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV and neonatal mortality but also help to fight poverty. The stipends further strengthen the position of the mother and newborn in a family setting. Their health is no longer seen as a luxury but a smart investment.
 
New Incentives is currently recruiting to fill the following positions:
 
Position 1: Field Volunteers
 
Context:
Over the past years, Nigeria has considerably expanded the availability of health services for pregnant women. Despite this progress on the supply-side, demand from at-risk pregnant women remains low. New Incentives encourages these women to deliver their babies in a health facility with cash transfers and thereby ensures their babies are born safely. Women are given the cash transfers after they complete different stages of maternal health services. This massively increases the children’s chance of survival in the first few years of their life.
