Research Officers, Lead Consultant / Researcher, Culture and Gender Project Officer Jobs - The Cross-Cultural Foundation of Uganda (CCFU)



Organisation: The Cross-Cultural Foundation of Uganda (CCFU)

Duty Station:  Kampala, Uganda

About US:
The Cross-Cultural Foundation of Uganda (CCFU) is a registered, not-for-profit national NGO dedicated to promoting the recognition of culture as vital for human development that responds to Uganda’s national identity and diversity. The Foundation’s mission is premised on the conviction that the positive aspects of culture can be harnessed to bring about sustainable, social and economic transformation.

In Uganda, there are limited interventions by both State and non-State actors to explore the potential role of cultural resources in the promotion of women and girl’s rights and protection against GBV. Yet the existence of cultural values, principles, and norms in some cultural communities provide for the well-being of women and girls. With support from Diakonia and the Embassy of Sweden, the Cross-Cultural Foundation of Uganda (CCFU) is implementing a project in Gulu, Kitgum, Lamwo, Pader and Lira that has revealed the existence of culturally defined rights that support the rights of women and girls to land, marital rights, inheritance rights, the right to protection from gender-based violence, the rights to information and education, the right to participation as well as the right to access to justice. Through this project, cultural leaders identified and reaffirmed these rights, and committed to increasing the use of cultural values, norms, and practices in decision making and conflict resolution to defend the rights of women in their areas of jurisdiction.

The Research Project:
Building on the above experience, with support from UN Women, CCFU has now embarked on a project that aims at harnessing cultural resources in areas under the five cultural institutions of Alur, Buganda, Busoga, Karamoja and Tooro in an effort to contribute to ending violence against women and girls in Uganda and enhancing women and girls’ access to justice. One of the main components of this project is research on positive and negative cultural resources and practices, examining worldviews, norms, values, beliefs, principles and practices that abet or prevent any form of violence against women and girls in the above-mentioned cultures. The research will involve the application of a wide range of participatory research tools to generate relevant information from women, girls, cultural leaders/institutions, government agencies and civil society organisations. The output, which will be an analytical report, will be used for policy advocacy activities at the local, national and international levels targeting a range of development partners to influence their opinions about the relevance of cultural resources in combating GBV and influencing legal gender-responsive instruments.

Key Duties and Responsibilities:
