Country: Democratic Republic of the Congo
Closing date: 18 Feb 2018
Chemonics seeks a chief of party for the Accès, Lecture, Redevabilité, et Rétention! (ACCELERE!) Activity 1 in the Democratic Republic of Congo. ACCELERE! 1 is a USAID project being implemented by Chemonics between May 27, 2015 and May 26, 2020. In collaboration with DFID, USAID has launched a primary education initiative to improve equitable access to education and learning outcomes for girls and boys in the DRC. This contract supports education service delivery in line with the results framework in 26 education sub-divisions across six target provinces (Haut Katanga, Lualaba, Kasaï Central, Kasaï Oriental, Equateur, and Sud Ubangi) and includes government schools as well as those administered by the religious networks, which are recognized by the DRC government, located in the target provinces. ACCELERE! 1 efforts also support education access for out-of-school youth through accelerated learning programs in the 26 targeted sub-divisions and six provinces in addition to South Kivu and North Kivu. This activity is one component of a DFID and USAID program to support the DRC government’s commitment to free universal basic education and improved learning outcomes as articulated in its Interim Education Plan, the Education Sector Strategy, and other reform efforts in the sector. Chemonics is looking for individuals who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of people around the world.
