Offer: Job: Project Manager, Women's Rights And Sustainable Livelihoods, ActionAid-Nairobi

ActionAid. Nairobi, Kenya.

Closing date: March 8, 2012.

Duration: 4 years Fixed Term – Local Terms and Conditions of Employment

Lead ActionAid’s innovative project on women’s rights and sustainable agriculture in Africa!

Over the next four years ActionAid will implement a groundbreaking project that aims to build sustainable livelihoods for women smallholder farmers in Ghana and Rwanda. The project will pilot practical solutions to reduce the unpaid care work of women farmers as part of a comprehensive approach to improving women farmers’ productivity and household food and nutrition security.

ActionAid is looking for a dynamic project manager with considerable experience working with rural women’s organisations in Africa. The project manager will provide leadership and guide the project implementation in Ghana and Rwanda.

A key part of this project will be to engage with regional policy makers in Africa as part of ActionAid’s advocacy on advancing women farmers rights and recognition in agriculture. This is a perfect role for a proven project manager with expertise on women’s rights and agriculture in Africa, and a great opportunity for someone who is looking to broaden their regional expertise across the continent.
