# Job Description

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

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

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 the districts of Kitgum, Lamwo, Arua, Yumbe, Kyegegwa,
Kiryandongo, Kyaka and Kampala including 7 districts in Karamoja region.
