HKI is implementing the Suaahara II Program (SP2), a 5-year, USAID-funded program aimed at improving the nutritional status of women and children in forty under-served rural districts of Nepal.
The position will be responsible for the day to day grants and financial operations functions for the SP II sub-awards. The Grants & Finance Coordinator shall work under the direct supervision of Sr. Manager Grants & Compliance to carry out all functions specified in this ToR. The position will ensure that HKI complies with relevant laws, rules, and regulations, whether internal or external.

Ensuring quality is a primary objective of HKI’s programming, and monitoring and evaluation oversight is a requirement of all coordinators to achieve the best outcomes possible.

As gender and social inclusion (GESI) is a cross-cutting and core component for HKI programs, all personnel are required to ensure GESI sensitivity and integration where they work.
