Project Coordinator - Livestock for Livelihoods UK NGO Jobs - Farm Africa


Organization: Farm Africa
Duty Station: Moroto, Karamoja, Uganda
Reports to: Chief of Party L4L

About US:
Farm Africa, founded in 1985, is an international non-governmental organization working in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. We drive agricultural and environmental change to improve lives. Our strategy has three pillars: agricultural expertise, management and preservation of ecosystems, and the power of business to drive prosperity. We believe Africa has the power to feed itself and are helping make this happen by establishing and spreading the best farming and forestry techniques so that poor farmers and herders have more food to feed their families and to sell. We help smallholders manage their natural resources sustainably so that they can withstand climate change challenges and shocks and ensure their families have enough food in the future as well as now. Farm Africa works in partnership with communities, government, local and international organizations, and the private sector to innovate, learn and share best practices for maximum impact of our projects.

About Project:
Farm Africa has the ambition to be the leading European NGO specialising in Agriculture, Natural Resource Management and Market Engagement. Farm Africa is mid-way through delivering our £5m Livestock for Livelihoods (L4L) programme in Uganda’s Karamoja sub-region and Ethiopia’s South Omo zone funded by the UK government (UK Aid). Under this programme Farm Africa is working with local civil society, SMEs, cooperatives and farmer organisations to develop market systems that support livestock services and enterprises for 21,000 women, contributing to women’s economic empowerment, reduced poverty and improved nutrition of women and children. The project is addressing market failures in animal health and breeding services to improve livestock productivity, building capacity and assets of herders, establishing trade and enterprise opportunities and improving household nutrition practices through behavioural change. It will also demonstrate how nutrition interventions can build on women’s economic empowerment to contribute to both increased income and improved household nutrition.
