Gulu

Location:

Based in Gulu with travel to district sites, as required.

Benefits:

Travel to and from duty site, vacation, regular R&R leave, accommodation, and insurance as per War Child Canada contractual standards.

Start Date:

ASAP

Salary:

Circa $50,000 - $55,000 Canadian dollars per year.

Contract:

1 year, provisional on successful performance review, with the possibility for renewal. Reports to:

The Country Director reports to the Director, International Programs at War Child Canada Headquarters (Toronto, Canada) on all result areas.

Background:

Founded in 1999, War Child Canada is dedicated to providing urgently needed humanitarian assistance to war-affected communities around the world. Working cooperatively with local partners and communities, War Child's international projects strive to ease human suffering and to create opportunities in conflict and post-conflict communities through targeted capacity-building in the areas of education, livelihoods and access to justice. WCC is currently working in seven countries: Afghanistan, DRC, Ethiopia, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Sudan (Darfur) and northern Uganda. Our three core programming areas are as follows:

1) Education: school reconstruction; teacher training; literacy; numeracy; accelerated learning; physical safe spaces for learning. 2) Access to Legal Justice: direct legal representation; training and sensitization on rights of women and children. 3) Livelihoods: vocational skills training; food security; micro-finance including small business management and small loans.

A strong component in WCC's overseas programming is the development of strong, respectful partnerships with local communities and organizations. By building sustainable projects through participatory methodologies and through building the capacity of local partners, WCC is able to ensure the delivery of appropriate and effective humanitarian and development projects.

Context:

War Child Canada (WCC) has been present in Northern Uganda (Acholi and Lango regions) since 2005 implementing the "Access to Justice Program for Women and Child Survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence". Through this project WCC seeks to enable women and children survivors to access formal and informal justice systems as well as to address the prevalence of perpetrators' impunity. The program employs a three pronged approach to address the key issues through: awareness raising through educating women and children and their communities; capacity building of local government officers and actors within the legal and justice systems about women's and children's rights, and legal intervention through providing direct legal aid to survivors of SGBV in need of protection. War Child Canada in Uganda operates through two departments: the Outreach Department and the Legal Protection Department. The Outreach department is responsible to plan and undertake prevention activities such as mass awareness campaigns and trainings. Outreach fills the education and communication void between WCC and the communities in providing awareness of SGBV, particularly around the legal aspects and support to the referral network that exists or is perpetuated through its existence. The legal department is charged with ensuring adequate legal intervention to survivors of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence.

Position summary:
