BagoSphere upskills job seekers and workers with in-demand human skills.

Our goal is to make human skills development accessible for any person seeking a better life. In developing economies, job seekers and workers lack human skills that employers need. As a result, they have low confidence, poor skills, and struggle with employment. BagoSphere provides guidance at every stage of launching their careers. We have created an online support system and human-skills education that makes them more likely to be employed and be promoted faster. 

BagoSphere has won multiple awards from MIT-Solve, Ashoka, UBS, Frontier Innovators and has partnered with Globe Telecom, the National University of Singapore, elea Foundation, Fossil Foundation, and Julius Baer Foundation to transform a new generation of workers ready for the next generation of business. We are also on the Stanford Social Innovation Review, Devex, Guardian. 


As a Fundraising & Communications Specialist, you will support the CEO in meeting both philanthropic and impact investment fundraising goals. You will work closely with the CEO on fundraising strategy, communications, and operations, a rare opportunity to learn directly with the CEO and make a direct impact to the mission of serving disadvantaged youth.

Fast forward 1 year. Here’s what we think a successful Fundraising & Communications Specialist would have accomplished in a year

  1. You helped us raise donor funding for BagoSphere to scale our career preparation program by 3x helping 600+ youth gain employment and reaching 50k youths in our online community.

  3. You developed first-hand experience working in a hybrid social enterprise, having built a perspective at a strategic and operational level. At the same time, you would have built a solid track record of fundraising and communications, plus a wealth of valuable contacts and relationships.
