About USAID GHG Program:
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. A gender strategy was developed for GHG in the first two years and was overseen and implemented by a gender advisor, two gender officers and sector teams. 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.
