    Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to global poverty problems.

    In close partnership with decision makers - the policymakers, practitioners, investors, and donors working with the poor around the world - we design and evaluate potential solutions to poverty problems using randomized evaluations, the most rigorous evaluation method available.

    We also mobilize and support these decision makers to use these solutions to build better programs and policies at scale.

    About the Project:

    IPA Kenya seeks qualified applicants for the position of Senior Field Officer for the Medicine Access Project that aims to evaluate the impact of a new medicine access program on the availability and price of the new medicine included in the program portfolio at health facilities and households in 8 counties targeted by the program in Kenya using a cluster-randomized trial design.

    Access to medicine in Kenya is via public, non-for-profit.

    In the private sector patients pay the price of the medicines out-of pocket; in the public and not-for-profit sector - Ministry of Health facilities or facilities affiliated with faith-based organizations - patients may be charged either the full price or a partial cost-recovery fee.

    Out-of-pocket spending can result in catastrophic health expenditure and increased poverty.

    A household survey conducted in 2008 indicates that 82% of patients pay out of pocket for their Non Communicable Diseases medicines.

    About 33% of respondents who reported being diagnosed and prescribed an NCD medicine had that medicine available in their house at the time of the survey.

    We seek to evaluate the impact of the new medicine access program on the availability and pricing of the new medicine in the program at the facilities and households in target counties.

    Data for the evaluation will be collected at two levels: health facilities and households.

    We are preparing for the baseline data collection, the first of the five phases of data collection, prior to the program implementation.

    HelpAge International

    Job Title: Health Adviser

    Salary grade: E

    Salary range: £34,031 - £43,312 depending on skills and experience

    Location: HelpAge International Office, London with regular overseas travel. Alternatively it is possible to be based in the HelpAge regional office in Nairobi or Amman.

    Department: Humanitarian Team, Programmes Department

    Responsible to: Head of the Humanitarian Team

    Key relationships:

  • Externally, regular relationships with key NGOs, Clusters, UN agencies, donors and HelpAge affiliates.
  • Internally, close working relationships with other members of the Humanitarian Team and other London departments; HelpAge International regional and country offices.

    Contract: Full time, permanent

    Background:

    Older people are amongst the most vulnerable people in humanitarian crises.

    As population ageing transforms low- and middle-income countries as well as richer countries, ever more older people are affected by conflict and disasters.

    HelpAge International is the only international NGO dedicated to ensuring older people receive humanitarian assistance and protection.

    HelpAge International’s goal is global change.

    The world we want is one where everyone, whatever their age, can say:

  • I have the income I need
  • I enjoy the best possible health and quality of life
  • I am safe and secure, free from discrimination and abuse
  • My voice is heard.

    We want older people enduring humanitarian crises to be able to say this too.

    We work to achieve this by providing humanitarian assistance and protection in situations of conflict and disaster;
    by building technical expertise and evidence in key areas for older people in humanitarian crises;
    and by using our expertise and experience to inform and influence global and local humanitarian response.

    HelpAge programmes and policy work are managed by a Secretariat Office in London and Regional Offices in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

    We work in close collaboration with over 100 national and international organisations that together form the HelpAge Global Network.

    HelpAge’s humanitarian work is led and supported by the Humanitarian Team based in London.

    The team comprises programme and policy specialists who each have a specific technical sector expertise.

    They provide guidance and leadership in their technical sectors, technical assistance to ensure the quality of our humanitarian work and support HelpAge country and regional teams and our network partners to respond to emergencies.

    Older people’s health in humanitarian settings

    Older people have specific health vulnerabilities and needs in humanitarian crises related to their age including non-communicable and communicable diseases, access to health services and nutrition support, vision and hearing challenges.

    They may face specific challenges accessing relief and services because of reduced mobility, strength and psychological or financial factors.

    They may face barriers linked to limited knowledge, skills and the attitudes of health staff.

    They are often not given the assistance they need by humanitarian actors with other priorities.

    In order to meet older people’s humanitarian needs and develop effective strategies and expertise, HelpAge and its partners implement health and nutrition programmes in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and Eurasia in humanitarian contexts including conflict and displacement settings and in the aftermath of natural disasters.

    There is a special strategic focus on developing our health programme in the Middle East and Eurasia region and our nutrition programme in the East Africa region.

    In order to achieve the quality and scale of support that is required to meet the humanitarian needs of older people in an ageing world, we engage in research and analyse learning from programmes.

    This shapes and informs our advocacy work with other humanitarian actors including NGOs, UN agencies, clusters, governments and donors.

    Purpose of the Job:

    To further HelpAge’s organisational goal of ensuring that older people receive the healthcare and nutrition support they need in humanitarian crises by providing strategic direction, leadership and coordination to HelpAge’s programming and policy work on health and nutrition in humanitarian crises.

  • Provide strategic leadership and guidance to build on HelpAge’s existing health and nutrition work and develop a strategy for the organisation to achieve its strategic goal on health and nutrition in humanitarian contexts

    Mercy Corps Youth Tender Assessment Coordinator Consultancy in Kenya

    Mercy Corps

    Scope of Work

    Youth Tender Assessment Coordinator

    About Mercy Corps:

    Mercy Corps’ mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.

    We work in over 42 countries where we have developed strong relationships with local communities and civil, private and public-sector partners including government entities at local, regional and national levels.

    Operational in Kenya since 2008, we currently are a team of 75 people who work from 5 offices: Nairobi, Wajir, Eldoret, Kapenguira, and Lodwar.

    Our programs strive to achieve one or more of our countrywide objectives:

    1) Increase the capabilities and assets of households to adapt and recover from shocks and stresses,

    2) reduce levels of in-country and cross-border conflicts that threaten to destabilize development gains,

    3) strengthen adolescent & youth leadership, livelihoods, & ability to influence government policy, and

    4) Increase the effectiveness of public service at the county government level.

    Summary of Consultancy:

    Mercy Corps plans to assess the use and benefit of the Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) funds earmarked by the GoK to support business run by youth, [women and people with disabilities] at the county level (http://agpo.go.ke/pages/about-agpo).

    Mercy Corps specifically hopes to better understand if this initiative has promoted youth (defined in Kenya as ages 18-35 years old) businesses and enterprise, and generated gainful self- employment, how youth businesses use and benefit from these funds, the health of this youth-run businesses and what recommendations youth and others who administer the funds have to improve government initiatives like AGPO.

    In addition, Mercy Corps would like to understand county-managed “youth funds” that may be in place in certain counties to promote youth entrepreneurship and support youth-run businesses—and assess others’ perceptions of the AGPO and youth funds regarding what is working, what is not working and what could be improved.

    The research will be in specific counties in which the county governments have welcomed Mercy Corps to conduct this research and share the results with them.

    We believe that such an independent assessment of speaking to youth who benefited from AGPO and/or youth funds and soliciting perceptions about AGPO from others in the counties has not happened before.

    The outcomes of the assessments at the county level will be shared with all target counties and then aggregated to create a national understanding of how AGPO funds are used in multiple counties.

    Mercy Corps intends to conduct this research in 4 counties in distinct areas of Kenya in which we work (e.g. West Pokot, Kericho or Nandi, Kirinyaga or Nyeri and Wajir).

    We are looking for an individual researcher to help us finalize the Terms of Reference for the Research, oversee and conduct the research, which will be administered by students and/or Mercy Corps team members, draft an overall report and PowerPoint presentation (by county) and then a consolidated report with all county information and recommendations included.

A list of all AGPO youth recipients in each county will be needed from government officials in order to randomly select those to be interviewed (we anticipate interviewing 50 AGPO recipients per county)
  • Develop, test and finalize interview guide and strategy for interviewing AGPO youth recipients and other interviewees.
  • Train student interviewers and Mercy Corps staff in how to administer and code the interview guide and other expectations of them.
  • Assess others’ perceptions of the AGPO a program regarding what is working, what is not working and what could be improved. Those to be interviewed include county government officials and the public (we estimate interviewing 25 people per county that fall into this category).

    Sanergy Quality and Safety Consultant Vacancy in Kenya

    Vacancy: Quality and Safety Consultant

    Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements.

    Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps:

    we build a dense network of low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities – called Fresh Life Toilets.

    We franchise the toilets to community residents, who run them as commercial toilets; landlords, who offer them as a value-added service to their tenants; and schools, to ensure children always have access to a safe sanitation option.

    We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, business analytics, training and aspirational marketing and branding.

    We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community for treatment.

    We convert the waste into valuable end products, such as organic fertilizer and insect-based animal protein, which we sell to Kenyan farms.

    We launched our first toilet in November 2011, and we now have a network of over 600 active Fresh Life Toilets run by over 300 Fresh Life Operators.

    We have collected and converted over 7,800 tons of waste.

    At the same time, we have built a team of over 250 people.

    For our work, we have been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World Doing Social Good and one of the 10 Best Companies in Africa.

    The Consultant task:

    We are currently developing and scaling the use of Black Soldier Flies (BSF) to safely decomposing the organic waste that we collect from our sanitation facilities and create effective agricultural inputs, including animal feed.

    As we begin to produce at scale we are looking for a consultant to establish consistent quality and safety parameters for the product

    Jamii Thabiti Programme

    Jamii Thabiti is a £13.5 million, 3.5 year DFID funded problem driven programme that aims to increase security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya through increasing the capacity of key institutions (such as the police and county government) to prevent and respond to violence.

    We are looking for a consultant to carry out organisational capacity assessments on the programmes partners

    Until mid-August 2016

    Nairobi Kenya

    The Programme

    Security represents a significant challenge for Kenya.

    Poor and marginalised Kenyans suffer from a multiplicity of violent attacks.

    Almost 500 Kenyans were killed and over 55,000 displaced due to inter-communal violence and resource conflicts during 2013 .

    Women and children were most affected by the brunt of sexual violence, killings, injuries, and loss of property and displacement that occurred. Kenya ranks at 12/124 in the Global Terrorism Index .

    A nationwide perception survey reported that approximately 20% of respondents had been victims of crime or violence during the preceding year .

    Countrywide, 39% of Kenyan women aged 15-49 have experienced sexual or physical violence, according to the latest Kenya Democratic Health survey .

    In order to address these high levels of violence DFID Kenya established the Jamii Thabiti Programme, also known as the Kenya Improving Community Security Programme (ICS).

    Jamii Thabiti is a £13.5 million, 3.5 year DFID funded problem driven programme that aims to increase security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya through increasing the capacity of key institutions (such as the police and county government) to prevent and respond to violence.

    In doing so, the programme will address three types of violence: criminal violence, inter-communal violence and violence against women and girls (VAWG) initially in eight counties:

    Kisumu, Bungoma, Wajir, Mandera Nakuru, Baringo, Kwale and Kilifi. This will be achieved through partnership agreements with at least 20 partners at the National and county level.

    Output 1: Strengthened national frameworks for effective, oversight, governance and coordination to safety and security interventions at the county level.

    Output 2: Enhanced effectiveness, coordination, oversight and accountability of safety and security actors at the county level.

    Output 3: Improved community knowledge of rights, responsibilities, and partnership with safety and security service providers in resolving violence at the local level.

    Output 4: Effective partnerships, and lessons learning at the national and county level

    The Position

    The results of this activity will feed into Output 4 of the logical framework which requires strengthening the capacities of partner organisations to enable them to effectively implement activities and ensure adaptive and iterative programming on police reform, peacebuilding and violence against women and girls.

    In consultation with Jamii Thabiti, the consultant/organisation will develop capacity development plans that accurately capture priority areas and activities, timeframes for such activities, costings and expected outcomes/results. To this end, Jamii Thabiti seeks to engage the services of a qualified local consultant/s or firm with demonstrated expertise in facilitating organisational capacity assessments, capacity development plans and the implementation of development plans.

    M-KOPA Solar Device Data Analyst Job in Nairobi, Kenya

    M-KOPA is seeking:

    Position Title: Device Data Analyst

    Location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Position Start: As soon As Possible

    Reporting to: Device Analytics Manager

    Overall Purpose:

    This position will allow M-KOPA to do more data analysis on units in the field so as to quickly respond to device issues (whether they be hardware or firmware issues).

    The analysis on devices allows for reduction of data costs on SIMs by reducing multiple reports of device events, respond to battery issues by changing the firmware profile or by proactively returning units or to identify incorrect messages that are being sent to unit resulting in unexpected behavior.

    About M-KOPA Solar:

    M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for off-grid customers.

    Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 350,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day. The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan.

    Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage "credits" for Kshs 50, or less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting.

    After one year of payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.

    All revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.

    This connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company's proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet.

    As of January 2016 M-KOPA employs over 700 full time staff across East Africa and sells through a network of over 1,000 direct sales agents.

    It has also commenced licensing its technology to partners in other markets.

    M-KOPA has been recognised for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.

    M-KOPA has also successfully tested a range of new products that leverage its relationship with customers, and M-KOPA’s unique competencies in mobile telecommunications and ICT.

    To ensure that the research and development of new products add value to (and do not distract from) its core business, M-KOPA is establishing the M-KOPA Labs.

    The Labs will be a dedicated business unit within M-KOPA that will define and test extensions of the M-KOPA asset-based credit model for off-grid-power to new products and services.

    ILRI Research Fellowship: Call for Applications for Research Fellows in Valuation of the Impacts of Management of Rangelands for Forage Production in Pastoral Systems

    (closing date 15 June 2016)

    The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is offering a research fellowship as a part of the “Enhancing the value of ecosystem services in pastoral systems” research program.

    The program has already worked with stakeholders at the two research sites to identify preferred management options for rangeland natural resources, and is now starting work to model the possible impacts of these options on ecosystem services.

    ILRI works with partners worldwide to enhance the roles that livestock play in food security and poverty alleviation, principally in Africa and Asia.

    The outcomes of these research partnerships help people in developing countries keep their farm animals’ alive and productive, increase and sustain their livestock and farm productivity, find profitable markets for their animal products, and reduce the risk of livestock-related diseases.

    ILRI is a not-for-profit institution with a staff of about 700 and in 2016, an operating budget of about USD 83 million.

    A member of the CGIAR Consortium working for a food-secure future, ILRI has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, a principal campus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and offices in other countries in East, West and Southern Africa and in South, Southeast and East Asia.

    Background

    Rangeland resources are numerous but the ecosystems are fragile requiring appropriate management strategies to ensure sustainable productivity.

    ILRI’s research program on “Enhancing the value of ecosystem services in pastoral systems” will conduct an analysis of available practices, of their potential impacts on water, biodiversity and forage, and of the potential tradeoffs among them could help to identify best bet practices.

    The ecosystem services provided by rangelands tend to be grossly undervalued by policymakers and other decision-makers, and the potential economic contribution of management of those services underestimated.

    Economic valuation of the contribution of effective rangeland management to livestock productivity is one strategy for helping such stakeholders understand the importance of these ecosystem services and their potential contribution to economic development.

    Incorporating such analyses into local and watershed-level decision-making could improve decision-making and management to enhance ecosystem services from rangelands.

    Furthermore, this screening will contribute substantially to the knowledge of pastoral livelihoods and ecosystems in Africa, and the diverse interactions between human uses and the natural environment.

    Activities that are a part of the overall research program include:

  • implement an ecosystem services inventory in rangeland areas in the Tana River County, Kenya, and Yatenga Province, Burkina Faso;
  • identify changes in their distribution over a twenty year period;
  • identify the best practices that can enhance delivery of these ecosystems and the factors that are influencing their implementation;
  • use scenario analysis to assess the potential of different practices for improving livelihoods and restoring degraded lands in the study areas. The program will also investigate interactions of ecosystem services related to forage and to water in extensive livestock systems.

    Tasks will include:

  • The fellow will investigate approaches to economic valuation of the effects of some of these preferred management options on pasture resources and ultimately on livestock productivity. The fellow’s research will aim to strike a balance that results in reliable and valid research results while also producing analyses useful for policymakers in a timely way.
  • The fellow will work closely with the ecologists and modelers in the research program, adding an economic layer of analysis to the modeling and scenario work.
  • The fellow will also produce a report that presents his/her analysis.
  • This fellowship will be ideal for a Masters student thesis research. PhD students can also be considered, provided the required deadlines can be met.

    Requirements and Qualifications

    The ideal candidate should:

  • Be currently enrolled in a Masters or PhD program in a recognized university in Economics, Agricultural Economics, Environmental Economics or a related discipline.
  • Expect to complete all required coursework no later than 31 July 2016.
  • Be prepared to begin work on the project no later than 15 September 2016.
  • Have no health or other restrictions that would prevent them from carrying our field research in rural African settings.
  • Fluency in spoken English, and excellent English language writing skills. Fluency in French will be an added advantage, but is not required.

    Location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Duration: Six months

    Terms of appointment:

    The successful applicant will receive a monthly stipend equivalent to USD 1,500 per month for up to six months, as well as end-of-fellowship honorarium of USD 2,000 upon delivery of the final report.

    The fellow will be based at ILRI’s headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.

    The fellowship will also involve field trips to the Kenyan and Burkinabe research sites.

    ILRI will provide travel and field research expenses as necessary.

    How to Apply

    Senior Programme Manager - Joint Programme on Local Governance and Decentralized Service Delivery (JPLG)Jobs in Kenya

    Closing date: 07th June 2016

    Organizational Context

    The Joint Programme on Local Governance and Decentralized Service Delivery (JPLG) for Somalia is a joint UN programme comprising of ILO, UNCDF, UNDP, UN-HABITAT and UNICEF.

    The first phase of JPLG commenced in April 2008 and ended in December 2012, and the second phase (JPLG II: 2013-2017) is now being implemented across Somalia.

    The UN JPLG is implemented in partnership with the Federal Government of Somalia, the Government of Puntland State of Somalia and the Government of Somaliland with an average annual budget of USD 25-35M.

    The JPLG II specific objectives are:

  • Communities have equitable access to basic services through local government;
  • Local governments are accountable and transparent. UN JPLG works to ensure transparent, accountable and efficient local service delivery by working at the following different enabling levels:
  • Improving the legislative and regulatory framework for decentralized service delivery in all three zones of Somalia;
  • Improving the capacity of existing and emergent district councils;
  • Providing funding for service delivery through districts councils;
  • Developing the capacity of communities to generate demand side governance at the local level;
  • Supporting infrastructural development facilitating access to basic services (and improving economic activity);
  • Developing local government’s engagement with civil society on economic development.

    The JPLG pursues a comprehensive capacity development approach aimed at local authorities, Federal and central administrations and communities.

    It builds on existing capacities and focuses on design and development of policies and systems, institutional strengthening, civic education, citizen and private sector participation in service delivery and local economic development.

    In so doing, the JPLG supports a ‘top-down’ process covering policy development for local governance and decentralization and ‘bottom-up’ empowerment of communities to demand and participate in local governance and economic development.

    In addition, the programme has designed a Local Development Fund which acts as an intergovernmental fiscal transfer system to channel district grants for capital investments, local economic development and for piloting decentralized service delivery models.

    Since 2014 and considering the political and security developments and opportunities in the south and central region, JPLG is expanding its support towards strengthening of interim district administrations.

    JPLG approach aims at placing the relevant local and central government institutions in the driving seat for capacity development and other reforms in line with established procedures and systems.

    To coordinate the JPLG and facilitate the implementation of the participating UN agencies, a Programme Management Unit (PMU) is in place comprising of national and international staffs based in Somalia and in Nairobi respectively.

    The PMU ensures timely and appropriate implementation of the work plans, reviewed and approved by the JPLG Steering Committees, which comprises the heads or delegates of the participating UN agencies, donors and government representatives.

    The PMU is accountable to the JPLG Steering Committee for the results achieved under the Joint Programme.

    The PMU is headed by the JPLG Senior Programme Manager and consists of: an international Senior Programme Manager, of an international Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist, a National Programme Specialist, a National Programme and Finance Analyst, National Local Area Managers, National M&E officers and a Communication consultant/analyst.

    The JPLG Senior Programme Manager leads and supervises the PMU staff and delegates responsibilities and authority according to respective ToRs (including for day to day coordination by the Local Area Managers in Somalia).

    In this context, the JPLG Programme Management Group (PMG) wishes to recruit a JPLG Senior Programme Manager who will report to the PMG. The JPLG Senior Programme Manager will provide overall strategic guidance and coordination of the work of the participating UN agencies, provide oversight to ensure a harmonised approach and directly manage the PMU.

    The Senior Programme Manager will also be responsible for monitoring and reporting of all JPLG activities and results to the JPLG Steering Committee and Programme Management Group.

    The Senior Programme Manager will also work in close collaboration with UNCT members, programme and operations teams of the participating UN Agencies, the UN Mission in Somalia (UNSOS),
    the Multi Partner Trust Fund (MPTF), Government officials, technical advisors and experts, multi-lateral and bi-lateral donors and civil society in ensuring successful and transparent coordination of JPLG activities.

    The programme is currently in transition, with the current phase ending in 2017, and in this connection JPLG is facing two major challenges:

    (1) adjusting the current scope of interventions and operational modalities to the improved capacities of national partners in Somaliland and Puntland, whilst addressing emerging programmatic opportunities in the new Federal Member States being established, and towards ensuring a sustainable completion of the present phase; and

    (2) developing the next phase of the program subject to the continued interest and commitment of national and international partners.

    The Senior Program Manager is expected to contribute substantively both in terms of expertise and coordination to the achievement of these two objectives.

    Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements.

    Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities – called Fresh Life Toilets.

    We franchise the toilets to community residents, who run them as commercial toilets; landlords, who offer them as a value-added service to their tenants; and schools, to ensure children always have access to a safe sanitation option.

    We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, business analytics, training and aspirational marketing and branding.

    We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community for treatment.

    We convert the waste into valuable end products, such as organic fertilizer and insect-based animal protein,, which we sell to Kenyan farms.

    We launched our first toilet in November 2011, and we now have a network of over 600 active Fresh Life Toilets run by over 300 Fresh Life Operators.

    We have collected and converted over 7,800 tons of waste.

    At the same time, we have built a team of over 250 people.

    For our work, we have been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World Doing Social Good and one of the 10 Best Companies in Africa.

    We are an increasingly sophisticated, highly intricate organization with many moving parts.

    Program Associate, Citizenship Jobs in Kenya

    Closing date: 03 Jun 2016

    An organized, dynamic self-starter to support Namati’s multi-country Citizenship Program.

    About Namati

    Around the world, grassroots community paralegals are squeezing justice out of broken systems:

    restoring running water to health facilities, obtaining birth certificates for children born into historically stateless communities, preventing land grabs, ending unlawful pollution.

    This is the work of Namati – putting the power of the law in the hands of the people.

    In the last four years, Namati paralegals have worked with over 40,000 clients to take on some of the greatest challenges of our times:

    protecting community lands, enforcing environmental law, and securing basic rights to healthcare and citizenship.

    Drawing on learning from thousands of cases, we have successfully advocated for 80+ improvements to laws and systems that have affected millions of people, like better policies for land governance in Liberia and healthcare in Mozambique.

    And we have brought together hundreds of groups from every region of the world to form the first global network dedicated to legal empowerment.

    Our community successfully advocated for incorporation of justice targets in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals—something sympathetic officials told us was impossible two years ago.

    We’ve proven our concept, and we’re now at an inflection point. Namati is poised to scale.

    We have the tools, resources and networks to build a powerful global movement for justice.

    Please consider joining us.

    For more information visit www.namati.org.

    About Namati’s Citizenship Program

    Paralegals associated with our Citizenship Program are recruited from historically stateless communities who have citizenship in law but continue to face government discrimination in their attempts to acquire or use legal identity documents.

    Namati paralegals assist fellow members of the Bihari/Urdu-speaking community in Bangladesh and the Nubian community in Kenya with the acquisition of legal identity documents, educating clients on the law and building their confidence to interact with government in the process.

    Paralegals also carefully track each case in order to build evidence of how clients experience the administrative system and how discrimination affects the process.

    This data is used for advocacy to improve the laws and systems related to nationality and registration.

    Since 2013, paralegals have secured 3,300+ identity documents (birth certificates, ID cards, passports) for members of these communities.

    Namati’s Citizenship Program is now moving into a new phase - supporting new partners in Kenya take the paralegal approach to communities like Kenyan Somalis, developing robust advocacy campaigns in both countries, publishing our lessons and experience, and providing support for new paralegal initiatives within the Syrian refugee community in Jordan and Lebanon.

    About the position

    We are seeking an organized, self-starting Program Associate to support Namati’s Citizenship Program team, based in Nairobi but working across all program countries/sites.

    Responsibilities will be dynamic based on the varied needs of the team and will include conducting research, writing and editing, administrative support, correspondence and outreach, organizing travel and event logistics, and other special projects.

    The successful candidate will also play a role in supporting grassroots partners to improve data quality and management as well as participating in analyses for program learning and advocacy.

    Overall, the Program Associate will be expected to take initiative, pay careful attention to detail, and establish systems where needed to meet the needs of a growing organization and office.

    Here’s what you might have tackled last week -

  • Spending a half-day with a partner organization’s team to build new checks for data errors into the existing paralegal database system.
  • Sending introductory emails to two new fundraising leads to explain Namati’s work and request a meeting.
  • Conducting research on funders who might support Namati’s approach to citizenship.
  • Scheduling calls between Namati colleagues and several partners to plan for an upcoming joint advocacy meeting.
  • Researching new and rising actors using paralegals to address citizenship and/or access to legal identity legal empowerment, and reaching out to them to bring them into our community.

    About You/Must-Haves for the Position

    Organized and meticulous approach to your work:

    You genuinely enjoy completing detail-oriented tasks.

    You are dedicated to letting no ball drop, deftly juggle multiple tasks, and feel happiest at work when you have all your tasks in order.

    Flexibility:

    You know

    that providing quality support always begins with careful planning and execution.

    Mission orientation and drive:

    It’s in your nature to work tirelessly on a problem until you’ve seen the solution through to your complete satisfaction.

    You’re deeply committed to Namati’s mission and driven to make an impact.

    Growth mindset:

    In service of that growth, you welcome and delight in feedback from supervisors, peers, reports, and anyone else.

    Nice to haves
