Job Title: Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist

The program will be implemented in Central and Eastern parts of Uganda. The program design is based on three key areas namely thematic competencies, organizational capacity development and advocacy. Key implementers and partners in the programme are Caritas Uganda for Advocacy, the Central Archdiocesan Provincial Caritas Association (CAPCA) for CAPCA III Project, the Eastern Archdiocesan Development Network (EADAEN) for SPECIAL III Project and Community Integrated Development Initiative (CIDI) Soroti for SIDP III Project.

An umbrella committee of the Programme has been formed known as a Program Management Committee (PMC) that coordinates and provides an oversight role as well as implementation harmonization.
