# Job Description

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee www.rescue.org is a
world leader in relief, rehabilitation and post-conflict development services

immediate and lifesaving needs of conflict affected people in emergencies and
the reconstruction needs of post-conflict societies.

aims of saving lives, strengthening institutions, and supporting social
cohesion, the IRC in Uganda is laying the building blocks for long-term
