Job description

Title of Post:  Volunteer Coordinator/Keneya Kelen Project

Department: Health

Band: VI

Director Supervisor: Project Director, Keneya Kelen

Country/Location:  Mali/Bamako

 

 About CRS

Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. We welcome among our staff and partners, those of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and our commitment to serve those in need.   CRS has been active in Mali since 1999 and currently implements a diverse portfolio of health, emergency response, agriculture, resilience and education projects in all regions of the country except for Kidal.

Context

CRS is seeking a fully bilingual Volunteer Coordinator for the Keneya Kelen projectfunded through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Volunteer Program in support of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA)’s zoonotic disease action package.  This anticipated 3-year project will supplement and expand upon ongoing One Health and GHSA activities in Mali, ultimately increasing the capacity of the Malian government to detect zoonotic diseases quickly and accurately through strengthening of the animal health surveillance and disease identification network. The project will build the human and material capacity of multiple One Health Actors, including veterinary laboratories, government veterinarians, and livestock sector actors, in the areas of zoonotic disease diagnosis, specimen collection and transport, and passive surveillance of livestock disease. It will also develop innovative means to strengthen linkages between the animal and human health sectors, further advancing the One Health approach in Mali.

The global F2F program, of which Keneya Kelen is a part, aims to facilitate economic growth within targeted agriculture sub-sectors, enhance sub-sector inclusiveness to expand participation to a broader range of individuals and communities and to increase the American public’s understanding of international development issues and US international development programs. F2F programs provide technical assistance to introduce new technologies, innovations and development of local capacity for more productive, profitable, sustainable and equitable agriculture systems.

Through the unique F2F volunteer component, Keneya Kelen will strategically draw upon the expertise of a pool of local, regional and international volunteers with expertise in multiple project-related areas, These F2F Volunteers will be selected to serve in well-targeted, short-term, high-impact volunteer field assignments which will support capacity building and peer-to-peer technical exchange.

The project will leverage local volunteer expertise from within Mali, while also tapping into global networks within the West Africa region and from the United States.
