We champion the engagement, position, and ultimately the influence of young people at every stage of development. Since 1993, we have been applying our experience to engage young people and young professionals at all levels of our organization to lead change. Our unique youth-led approach has been cited for best practice and won awards from the Stars Foundation, World Bank, UNAIDS, and most recently the 2014 Resolve Award for Mabinti Tushike Hatamu.
We are now embarking on an exciting new programme of work funded by USAID working with PACT and other consortium partners called C2EYP – Caring for Children and Empowering Young People program. This programme focuses on OVC (orphans and vulnerable children) care and support, HIV services, violence prevention and response, early childhood and adolescent development, education, child labourOut, and children living and working in the streets, community strengthening, and operational research for policy and planning. The team, in partnership with high performing local civil society organizations (CSOs), will scale up core interventions to save lives and prevent new infections, ensuring that children and youth survive and thrive through sustainable improvements in the health and social well-being of one million orphans and vulnerable children and their families.
This exciting role requires not only leadership and technical expertise and follow-through, but also excellent time management and communication skills, and a real creativity and flare for designing and planning innovative and interactive training programmes appropriate for the specific target group of the activity.
You will be an outgoing, highly motivated, and strong communicator who is committed to the promotion of youth led development and empowerment of women and girls. You will have strong knowledge and expertise in the two of our development goal areas, livelihoods and entrepreneurship, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
