# Job Description

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a
world leader in relief, rehabilitation, and post-conflict development services
for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. The IRC is
currently working in over 40 countries around the world, addressing both the
immediate and lifesaving needs of conflict affected people in emergencies and
the reconstruction needs of post-conflict societies.

The IRC began programming in northern Uganda in 1998 in response to mass
displacement and devastation wrought by rebel group, the Lord’s Resistance
Army. In 2002, the IRC expanded to the remote, conflict-affected region of
Karamoja and in 2011, began working with refugees in Kampala. Monitoring the
influx of South Sudanese refugees at the end of 2015, the IRC began scaling up
its response to refugees arriving in the West Nile region. By promoting
durable solutions that deliver on the interdependent aims of saving lives,
strengthening institutions, and supporting social cohesion, the IRC in Uganda
is laying the building blocks for long-term stability and development –
bringing people from harm to home. The IRC currently works in 9 districts in
Uganda, including Kitgum, Lamwo, Kyegegwa, Moroto, Amudat, Yumbe, Arua, Kasese
and Kampala. The IRC will be moving into additional/new locations in refugee
settlements in Kiryandongo and Zombo.

The IRC is currently implementing its health and nutrition program in West
Nile and Acholi focusing on providing primary health care services to refugees
in their settlements. Similar services will be extended to the new locations
starting January 2020.

in East Africa: Boosting Urban Innovations for Livelihoods Development RE:
BUILD program. The 5 years project is being implemented in Kampala and
Nairobi. The IRC is the Lead Partner and work with a consortium of local and
international partners to deliver the program. The RE: BUILD project seeks to
achieve economic self-reliance and benefit from strengthened urban economic,
regulatory, and social environments for urban refugees and vulnerable host

from better access to livelihoods opportunities and inclusive services within
communities to improved refugee-related policies and more targeted and
effective service delivery from national, regional, and global actors.
