FHI 360 serves more than 70 countries. FHI360 currently seeks qualified candidates to serve as a Chief of Party (COP) for an anticipated USAID /Tanzania- Let Girls Learn Initiative (LGL-T).
The main objectives are to ensure girls’ increased enrollment in educational programs for girls and increased retention in educational programs for girls in lower secondary school, and to empower adolescent girls to acquire an education and skills to become positive agents for change within their communities. To achieve this, FHI 360 and its partners will implement a gender-transformative school and community-based approach that engages girls, boys, women and men in actively examining and changing entrenched, unequal gender norms that harm individuals and hinder social and economic development. At the same time, LGL-T will put adolescent girls at the forefront of programming empowering them not only to stay in school, but also to use their new leadership and other skills at home, at school and in the broader community. The project will be implemented in secondary schools in the northern regions of Tanzania including Mwanza and Tabora.
