Our diversity is our strength; we encourage people from all
At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.
This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries and reached 65 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
CARE seeks a Chief of Party to be based in Washington, D.C. for an anticipated USAID Bureau for Food Security project, “Advancing Women’s Empowerment."
This procurement is expected to result in a five-year project in the $10-$25-million range. The Chief of Party is accountable for the overall vision and leadership of the project and is accountable for delivering results. The successful candidate should possess significant experience managing program, financial, and operations of USAID- or other international donor-funded projects. The procurement is expected to be released in April 2017 and awarded in September 2017.
This position is subject to project award and funding.
Gender-based inequalities all along the food production chain, “from farm to plate,” impede the equal attainment of food security for men and women, boys and girls. In order to contribute effectively to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, development programming will require increased attention to address gender inequalities as key drivers of hunger and poverty. CARE’s food security, livelihoods and nutrition program strategies take into account context-specific issues, including local gender constraints and assets. CARE emphasizes participatory methods of social change and works extensively with partner organizations to build local capacity and generate local leadership for change towards more gender- equitable systems, structures and relationships
