Offer: Africa Middle East Refugee Assistance (AMERA) seeking Psychosocial Team Leader

Africa Middle East Refugee Assistance (AMERA), a UK-based refugee rights organization assisting refugees who seek asylum in Egypt, is seeking a dynamic team-builder with a background in social or community-based work to serve as Psychosocial Team Leader. AMERA requires an intelligent, hard-working person with a commitment to service for vulnerable people, and an interest in finding innovative ways to integrate psychosocial, community and legal aid approaches to improving refugees’ access to human rights.

AMERA is one of the leading refugee rights NGOs in Egypt. Our Egypt office serves more than 1000 refugees each year and involves the efforts of more than 40 staff, interns, and interpreters from Egypt and other countries. AMERA provides legal aid and psychosocial services to asylum seekers and refugees, and it has specialized teams dealing with unaccompanied minors, survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, and community outreach.

For full description and requirements, please view the attached Word document. If you are unable to view it, please let me know by replying to this post.

To apply, email a cover letter (in English) and a complete CV

AMERA

Hi Janice,
My name is Rachel Erwin and I am the mental health clinical director of The SAGE Project in San Francisco. I am currently in Egypt and have been coming here off and on the last five years. I have been drawn here to a small place called Siwa where I spent three months last year. I am interested in knowing more about your organization and would love to come and visit. I am leaving Tuesday night, wow only two days! and if you contact me would come in a heart beat. I have been working with refugees from Cambodia for the last six years and now I am involved in supporting the mental health clinic in SF in treatment that includes art, movement therapy and a technology called EMDR, a profound modality that addresses trauma . I have worked in the field for twenty years with addiction, prostitution, trauma ( which I feel is the root of all suffering) and women's issues. Please feel free to contact me. And many thanks to the work you are doing here in Egypt, I would love to know more and to be connected to your organization

Hi Rachel,

I'd like to introduce to a PulseWire member who is Sundanese, but currently living in Egypt and may be a good resource for you. She is an incredible young woman!

AMERA

hi Rachel,
Great, I am glad you are connecting with them. AMERA had contacted us asking us to spread word to our community about this opportunity on their behalf. We are not affiliated with AMERA in any way but posted the opportunity as a courtesy to them. World Pulse is based in Portland, Oregon but due to our global reach, we often receive requests from organizations wishing to increase their exposure.

I wish you all the best in connecting with them and look forward to hearing how it goes. Best wishes,
Janice

Janice,
I am so excited by this community venue.
I have already found an amazing amount of connections for what I am trying to promote.
I have been working in the area of trauma and healing for several years and am seeing how I can take what I am doing and offer it to a larger venue.
Thank you for your support for healing women and trauma.
Rachel
