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 organizations in Sierra Leone, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.
To advance the organizational development processes of our partner organization Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (CDHR) and to support its work for a peaceful, gender-equitable and democratic social culture, we are looking for an
Organisational developer with experience in human rights work (m/f/d), Makeni, Sierra Leone
to start as soon as possible.
Your new role
The Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (CDHR) is an experienced civil-social organization that has been working since the end of the civil war towards the consolidation of peace, the strengthening of constitutional processes and the inclusion of marginalized groups of the population in four districts in northern Sierra Leone. Marginalized groups are often denied access to justice and a fair legal process. The opportunities for women and girls to participate in social, economic and political life are severely limited, especially in rural areas. Violence against women and girls is an alarming phenomenon characterized by a culture of silence and impunity for perpetrators. In communities affected by commercial activity, the resources available are often not used for the good of the people. This increases impoverishment and those affected are left without compensation. Through your work, you will support the further development and professionalization of the organization on the one hand, and, on the other, work with your colleagues to strengthen structures at community level in order to improve access to justice. In doing so, you will help to ensure that the rights and aspirations of women, girls, young people and rural populations in particular are protected.
Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
