The Oak Foundation commits its resources to address issues of global, social, and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged. With offices in Europe, Africa and North America, Oak Foundation makes grants to organisations located in approximately 40 countries worldwide.
A new Trustee has joined the board and is developing a thematic sub-programme within the Environment Programme to work on restoration of habitats and agriculture to encourage the recovery of biodiversity and support the livelihoods of local communities in Southern Africa and South America. To carry out this work, Oak Foundation is recruiting a natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, conservation expert (or related field) with a proven track record in supporting community-led land regenerative activities, ecosystem restoration, rewilding, and other nature-based solutions. The grant-making will focus on regenerative agriculture as well as people-centred conservation and restoration of natural ecosystems and protected areas.
