Project Manager NGO Careers - CARE International

Job Title:  Project Manager
Organisation: CARE International
Duty Station: Yumbe / Adjumani, Uganda

About US:
CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere, formerly Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe) is a major international humanitarian agency delivering emergency relief and long-term international development projects. Founded in 1945, CARE is nonsectarian, impartial, and non-governmental. It is one of the largest and oldest humanitarian aid organizations focused on fighting global poverty.

About Project:
CARE Uganda supports the financial inclusion aspirations of women and youth who encounter a distinct set of circumstances, in both humanitarian / emergency and relatively stable environments which places them amongst the vulnerable and marginalized members of their community. Through the Women and Youth Financial Inclusion Program (WAYFIP) women and youth are empowered to obtain diversified and sustainable livelihoods. They are also supported to access equitable financial inclusion and economic opportunities that can be achieved through engaging with markets, promotion of marketable skills and access to and utilization of financial services. CARE believes financial inclusion of women and youth will catalyze new and diversified businesses in the local markets and reduce poverty and vulnerability in their households. The program is largely based on CARE's existing Women's Economic empowerment (WEE) programming where the VSLA methodology contributes to the strategic approach of its core programs. In a bid to strengthen our financial inclusion and women economic empowerment strategic approach among the Conflict affected South Sudanese women, CARE Uganda is in partnership with UN Women to implement a three (3) years (2018 - 2021) Advancing Women's Economic Empowerment and Resilience in South Sudanese Emergency Response" (AWEAR), Programme in Yumbe and Adjumani districts.
The AWEAR programme seeks to increase the opportunities for women for South Sudanese women refugees in Adjumani and Yumbe to:
a)         Lead and participate in refugee and host population decision-making processes,
b)         Access and protect their rights; and
c)         Enhance education and skills and improve economic opportunities and empowerment.

Job Summary:  The Project Manager will be responsible for managing the AWEAR project funded by UN Women and implemented by CARE International in Uganda. AWEAR project is implemented in Yumbe (Bidibidi zone 1,2,3,4) and Adjumani (Majji settlement zone 1,2,3). The AWEAR project runs from October 2018 to August 2020. The project aim is to diversify the livelihood options of refugee women and girls, and their host communities through a menu of dignified, viable and profitable options. AWEAR will also target participants, with a focus on women and girl refugees by increasing their knowledge of financial management, financial literacy skills and their capacity to engage in productive and viable livelihood options. With this intervention, it's anticipated that the Refugee women's agency will increase, including their self-confidence, self-esteem, the knowledge of their rights and the capacity to exercise and claim them and men and boys in their direct environment will display more power sharing attitudes towards them. The risk of women and girls engaging in negative coping behaviors such as transactional sex will reduce as a result of having access to more women friendly livelihood opportunities. Ultimately women's resilience will also improve thanks to having a more diversified livelihood base.
The Project Manager will facilitate an integrated participatory approach in project management, supervision, coordination, planning, and implementation among CARE staff and key strategic/collaborative partners, across the two ear marked refugee settlements and host communities in Yumbe and Adjumani with a focus on cross-learning, 360 degrees' accountability, and monitoring integration aspects.
