CALL TO ACTION FIELD IMPLEMENTATION (CAFI) PROJECT MANAGER
Atlanta (United States of America)
CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and fight with CARE.
CARE and partners in the Call to Action Field Implementation (CAFI) project consortium seek an experienced Project Manager to coordinate and supervise implementation of project activities in the MENA and West Africa regions. The CAFI project has been developed to work with and strengthen women-led organizations (WLOs) and women-led networks/coalitions to meaningfully contribute to the sustainable implementation of the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies Global Roadmap 2021-2025 at field level.
CAFI is a three-year project funded by the US Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration that aims to promote collective action led by women and girls, represented by WLOs and women-led coalitions/networks, and to lead the planning and coordination among Call to Action signatories to operationalize the CTA field implementation in two regions: the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) and Western Africa. At present, six countries have been identified for project activities and advocacy initiatives: Cameroon, Mali and Niger; and Iraq, Lebanon and Sudan. CAFI will be implemented by a Consortium made of the Arab Women’s Organization of Jordan (AWO), CARE USA and the Dynamique des Femmes Juristes (DFJ) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in coordination with stakeholders in the six focus countries.
