The project, called the Northern Karamoja Growth, Health and Governance (GHG) program, aims to support the immediate needs of program beneficiaries while promoting long-term development by spurring systemic improvements in key economic sectors of northern Karamoja.

As the program moves into its final three years of implementation, and the team learns from and adapts its interventions to better suit the needs of the local context, it requires assistance from an experienced gender and youth expert who can lead integration efforts, with the support of two gender officers, but also identify areas where the program can better meet the needs of young people, with an emphasis on vulnerable groups.
