Catholic Relief Services is hiring a Food Security Technical Coordinator.
Catholic Relief Services is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS works to save, protect, and transform lives in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.
CRS reestablished programming in Mozambique in 2017 and has been implementing both development and emergency programs, strengthening livelihoods, and supporting disaster and conflict-affected communities from response through recovery. A significant part of the CRS Mozambique portfolio is to respond to the insurgency in Cabo Delgado province, in northern Mozambique. With funding from USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Latter Day Saints Charities, the country program is partnering with Caritas Pemba to support conflict-affected families and IDPs in Cabo Delgado through the provision of emergency shelters, shelter repair kits, emergency latrine structures, borehole construction/rehabilitation, and WASH NFI kit distributions, emergency food rations and agriculture inputs.
USAID BHA is seeking applications for funding for resilience food security activities in Mozambique from 2021-2026. Drawing on current experience in Mozambique, as well as considerable experience managing and implementing BHA awards globally, CRS is preparing to respond to an anticipated 2021 BHA Resilience Food Security Activity (RFSA) Request for Applications (RFA) for Mozambique. The expected five-year program would involve a multi-sectoral response to build resilience and address food insecurity and malnutrition in Mozambique. Globally, CRS is the largest implementer of BHA development programming.
