šŸ˜ļø About the Organization and Job Details

The OrganizationĀ 

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people. We currently work in over 93 countries, and focus primarily on women and girls as the most disproportionately affected by poverty, while engaging men and boys through our work too.

CAREā€™s East, Central, and Southern Africa Regional Office (ECSARO) is responsible for the oversight of CAREā€™s operations as well as the provision of support to 15 Country Offices in the region. For more information about our work, please visitĀ www.care.org

Institutional income is increasingly important to CARE. Such institutional sources (including multilateral and bilateral agencies and donors) typically have decentralized operations, budgets, and decision-making structures throughout the world. To engage effectively with these organizations, CARE has an established global – architecture that mirrors its key institutional relationships builds stronger partnerships, and delivers greater impact and influence at country, regional and global levels. This operational architecture also enables CARE to more readily pursue multi-country / regional opportunities that are increasingly offered by institutional donors to address transnational issues to most effectively mobilize resources.
