Project Manager Education NGO Careers – War Child Canada (WCC)

Job Title:        Project Manager Education
Organization: War Child Canada (WCC)
Reports to: Head of
Programs
Duty Station: Uganda
About US:
War Child Canada is an internationally recognized charity organization
registered in Toronto, Canada that works with war-affected communities to help
children reclaim their childhood through access to education, opportunity and
justice. War Child Canada takes an active role in raising public awareness
around the impact of war on communities and the shared responsibility to act.
When war itself ends, the consequences endure. A lack of employment
opportunities, the absence of effective economic or social structures, an
under-educated population and a culture of impunity around rights violations
combine to create conditions that make a return to conflict all too possible.
But by making a long-term investment to create an environment in which
childhood can thrive, the cycle of violence can be broken.
