AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Liberia, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.
For the expansion and further development of a master’s programme at the institute “Mother Patern College of Health Sciences” (MPCHS), we are looking for a social education worker, psychologist or social scientist as a
Lecturer for psychosocial counselling (m/f/d), Monrovia, Liberia
to start as soon as possible.
Your new role
Due to 14 years of civil war and the subsequent Ebola epidemic in 2014/2015, Liberia’s healthcare system has collapsed for the most part. There are too few trained staff to help people deal with their traumatic experiences and provide the basic medical care required.
The Mother Patern College of Health Sciences (MPCHS) is one of five higher education institutes of the Stella Maris Polytechnic of the Catholic Archdiocese of Monrovia. The mission of the MPCHS is to teach integrated academic, vocational and technical skills to enable students to respond to the rapid developments in Liberia in a dignified and well-prepared manner.
