    Reports To: Regional Business Development Manager with matrixed oversight from Ghana & Liberia Country Representatives.

    About CRS

    Catholic Relief Services (CRS) carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. We welcome as a part of our staff and as partners people of all faiths and secular traditions who share our values and our commitment to serving those in need.

    Background

    Catholic Relief Services began working in Ghana in 1958. For more than fifty years, CRS Ghana has enjoyed a tradition of cooperation and partnership with the Catholic Church and Government Ministries.

    Over the years, CRS’ operations have evolved from relief to social development by improving health status, advancing the quality of and access to basic education, social justice, global solidarity and the enhancement of food security in Ghana.

    CRS employs an integrated approach to help poor and vulnerable people lead full and productive lives with a focus on our signature areas of agricultural livelihoods, health and emergency response and recovery.

    We plan and coordinate programs in the country’s 19 Dioceses and one Vicariate, bringing public- and private-sector actors together for community-based development. CRS implements programs through partnerships with a variety of stakeholders, including the Government of Ghana, local NGOs, international NGOs, churches, and public and private sector partners. Our current work in Ghana focuses on: agriculture and livelihoods (including SILC); health (including WASH, MCH and HSS); and youth engagement.

    CRS first began working in Liberia in 1957, with a permanent country program office opening in 1990. During the ensuing 14+ years of conflict and war, CRS was one of the few agencies to maintain a constant presence in the country, providing life-saving humanitarian assistance to tens of thousands of people. With the establishment of peace, CRS and partners focused increasingly on reconstruction and development activities, working in health, agriculture, livelihoods, peace and justice, and micro-savings.

    With the onset of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak, CRS Liberia began working with our local health partners to ensure access to safe health care, support EVD triage and isolation and carry out EVD related community outreach and hygiene promotion activities. In addition, CRS continues to support immunization programming through support to a local platform of civil society organizations.
