Who We Are
Girl Effect is a non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need – from chatbots to chatshows and TV dramas to in-person clubs. Reaching more than 20 million in 20 countries across Africa and Asia, Girl Effect creates content that helps girls make choices and changes in their lives during the critical years of adolescence. By igniting their confidence to act differently at a time that can define their future, every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and livelihood.
Girl Effect uses Salesforce for two business-critical sets of activities:
To manage our supplier contracts, contract amendments and invoices, interfacing with our finance ERP (FinancialForce), and
As our CRM system for our funding partners, tracking our engagement with them
We are looking to procure a support partner to provide ongoing and project-based support to ensure that our use of Salesforce evolves in line with our organisational priorities and with new features introduced by Salesforce.
