Job Title: Education Officer – IRC Uganda Jobs 2021
Organization: International Rescue Committee (IRC)
Duty Station: Entebbe, Uganda
International Rescue Committee (IRC) Profile
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 28 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The Taliban’s rapid takeover of Afghanistan has newly displaced over 400,000 people and led thousands to seek out migration as the situation worsens. The estimated 70,000 Afghans eligible to apply to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) and the wider cohort of P-2 applicants still face an uncertain future: both applications can take over a year to be approved, and P-2 applicants must be outside of Afghanistan for the process to be completed. On August 17, 2021, in response to this need for emergency resettlement, the Government of Uganda (GoU) accepted a request from the U.S. Government to temporarily host up to 2,000 Afghan evacuees who would remain in Uganda while processing for asylum in third countries. A sizeable number of the arrivals in Uganda are children. Given the ongoing instability in Afghanistan, it is unlikely that their return home and/or resettlement will happen soon, yet some of them are children whose secure and fruitful future is dependent on uninterrupted Education and Early Childhood Development and Care.
IRC is seeking an Education Officer for the Afghan Response funded by The Rockefeller Foundation and Internal Afghanistan Appeal CRF. The role is for four months but renewable depending on the length of the response and availability of funding.
This position will be part of the larger initiative to provide essential services to Afghan evacuees in Uganda and will be the technical focal point and operational lead for the education intervention. S/he is responsible for quality implementation, day to day coordination of activities and collaboration with other IRC sectors to ensure timely support and effective execution of the education component and activities. The role will also assist with capacity strengthening of volunteers and coordination of consultants in accordance with overall guidelines and requirements.
S/he will also contribute to project monitoring, capacity strengthening, training, and participation in relevant multisectoral and inter-agency coordination forums and networks with varied structures and actors in the sub region. The Education Officer will technically report to the Deputy Project Coordinator-PlayMatters and operationally to the Response Manager.
