Brief Summary Description of Project:
Mercy Corps is an international humanitarian and development organization whose mission is to reduce suffering; poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. The organization has been operating in Ethiopia since 2004, working in rural, peri-urban and urban areas in five regional states: Somali, Oromia, Afar, Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples, Amhara and Addis Ababa City Administration. We engage in both development and humanitarian work, and seek to integrate approaches, programs and geographies as much as possible. Our partners include government, academic institutions, development and private sector actors, civil societies and participating public.
The assignment will take an extended period of six months and it is provided in rounds/phases integrating the theoretical training with practical exercise; applying what is learned in the class to existing and potential enterprises that are operational in RiPA operational areas. See the TOR below.
