    Nigeria – Shelter coordinator - Abuja/Maiduguri

    Desired start date: 1/04/2017

    Duration of the mission: 2 months

    Location: Abuja/Maiduguri

    SI is recruiting for its Nigeria mission. A food crisis and challenging security lead to an expanding mission, with special HR benefits…

    About the mission:

    SI has been operating in Borno State since July 2016, and is strongly focusing on the massive life-saving needs of the conflict-affected populations, through a 3-legged strategy:

    Multisectorial early recovery interventions in secured areas, implemented at neighborhood level in order to take into consideration the environmental context, risk factors, availability of resources and resilience capacities at a community level. This holistic approach entails a vulnerability-tailored assistance combined with a capacity building component.

    o Acting on water to fight against malnutrition. SI with its partner, a medical NGO, is doing its best to reduce malnutrition rates, especially of under-5-year children, alongside host communities and displaced people.

    To do so, SI equips nutrition and healthcare centers with water treatment and sanitation systems. In parallel, in host communities in both cities and in the camp in which 40,000 displaced people are living, within the walls of an old school in the city of Monguno, our teams are renovating water points, building toilets and working on water treatment solutions.

    o Reducing food insecurity. In Maiduguri and especially Muna Garaje, SI is implementing cash distribution programmes with vouchers (particularly for families with acute-malnourished children) to permit food access to the most vulnerable populations. SI aims to reduce significant food insecurity in the area.

    The other important line is that our team is acting on the stabilisation and safeguarding of livelihoods, to empower populations and decrease their dependence on food assistance, and furthermore, to reduce food insecurity.

    An emergency multisectoral assessment capacity in remote areas: RRM-inspired, and taking into consideration Borno State-related security and access situation, this axis would allow the provision of concrete, response-sizing oriented data to the humanitarian community, in strong coordination with mapping and coordination actors (OCHA, IOM database, Intersos interactive mapping database).

    Rapid response mechanism in IDPs camp-like settings outside Maiduguri: subsequently to the assessment axis, SI is aiming at covering the basic needs of displaced and non-displaced populations pockets in Borno most affected LGAs, in completion of ICRC’s current one-shot coverage.

    Business Support Manager

    Oxfam, one of the leading global development organizations, mobilizes the power of people against poverty. We are a diverse confederation of 17 strongly interconnected national affiliates working in over 90 countries, either directly, or with partners to enable transformational change, using a unique combination of long-term development, campaigning and humanitarian programs.

    We are looking for a Business Support Manager Based in Abuja, Nigeria Starting date as soon as possible, ultimately mid March, 3 months

    Background

    Over the past year, Boko Haram (BH) has intensified attacks which have spread from North-East Nigeria to Cameroon, Chad and Niger, affecting some 20 million people. Suicide bombings and raids targeting civilians in villages and in cities around the Lake Chad basin have caused widespread trauma, prevented people from accessing essential services and destroyed infrastructure.

    Across the region, over 2.8 million people are displaced; most of who are sheltered by communities that count among the world’s most vulnerable. The combined effect of growing insecurity, fast population growth and severe vulnerability resulting from a changing climate, environmental degradation, poverty and under-investment in social services is translating into record numbers of people in need of emergency relief.

    There are 9.2 million in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of violence committed by Boko Haram; Nigeria is hosting 7m, Cameroon 1.5m, Niger 460.000 and Chad 257.000. There has been widespread violence against civilians not only by BH but the military operations against the group have also caused serious protection risks and violations.

    Women and girls kidnapped by Boko Haram have been subjected to physical and psychological abuse, forced marriage, sexual slavery or forced labour. Boys have been forcibly enrolled as combatants and young girls used as suicide bombers.

    Boko Haram has targeted health facilities and schools, forcing health care workers and teachers to flee from where they are most needed. The increasing number of attacks and arrival of displaced children have placed an additional burden on already weak health and education systems.

    Insecurity, displacement, disrupted agricultural activities and cross-border trade continue to undermine communities’ livelihoods and have resulted in a sharp rise in food insecurity. Some 4.4 million people facing severe food insecurity urgently need support in the region, 90 per cent of them in north-east Nigeria, with 50,000 people in Phase 5, the highest level of food insecurity under the Cadre Harmonisé classification.

    Throughout the region, an estimated 223.000 severely acutely malnourished children could die if not urgently assisted.

    Food Security and Livelihoods Coordinator - Nigeria

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs.

PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Following the intensification of the Chad Lake conflict in Nigeria (North East of the Country), PUI has decided to also respond to this crisis (since the organization already assist the Nigerian refugees in Cameroon) from Nigeria.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs:

    Historical and geographical statehood:

    The current Nigeria is an agglomeration of both the Northern and Southern protectorate, which were amalgamated in 1914, only about a decade after the defeat of the Sokoto Caliphate and other Islamic states by the British which were to constitute much of Northern Nigeria. In those days, Cameroon, the eastern bordering country, was divided in French and British parts.

    Following a plebiscite in 1961, the Northern Cameroons opted to join Nigeria. The territory concerned made up much of what is now Northeastern Nigeria, and a large part of the areas affected by the North insurgency.

    Borno State Insurgency’s origins:

    Boko Haram (Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād -> « People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad ») was officially founding in 2002. Boko Haram conducted its operations more or less peacefully during the first seven years of its existence. During that period, the government reportedly repeatedly ignored warnings about the increasingly militant character of the organization.

    Boko Haram uprising:

    The situation changed in 2009 when the Nigerian government launched an investigation into the group’s activities following reports that its members were arming themselves. The present insurgency in Borno State began in 2009, when the jihadist rebel group Boko Haram started an armed rebellion against the government of Nigeria.

    Originally the group had alleged links to al-Qaeda. The insurgency took place within the context of long-standing issues of religious violence between Nigeria’s Muslim and Christian communities. When the government came into action, several members of the group were arrested, sparking deadly clashes with Nigerian security forces.

    The group’s founder and then leader Mohammed Yusuf was killed during this time while still in police custody.

    Escalating conflict:

    After the killing of M. Yusuf, the group carried out its first terrorist attack in Borno in January 2010. Since then, the violence has only escalated in terms of both frequency and intensity. In addition of that, in 2012, tensions within Boko Haram resulted in gradual split of the group between a conservative faction named Ansaru, led by Abu Usmatul al-Ansari, and the more dominant, violent faction led by Abubakar Shekau.

    In 2013, Nigerian governmental has started to apply a state of emergency in North Est Nigeria (Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa) => Nigeria forces launched an offensive in the Borno region in an attempt to dislodge Boko Haram fighters. The offensive had initial success, but the Boko Haram rebels were able to regain their strength. The violence escalated dramatically in 2014, with 10,849 deaths.

    Regional/International impact:

    In 2014, Boko Haram militants attacked several Nigerian towns in the North and captured them. The insurgency spread to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad, and Niger thus becoming a major regional conflict.

    This prompted the Nigerian government to launch an offensive, and with the help of Chad, Niger, and Cameroon. In 2015, a coalition of military forces from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger began a counter-insurgency campaign against Boko Haram. The coalition offensive forced Boko Haram to retreat into the Sambisa Forest (South East of Maiduguri City).

    Recent developments of the conflict:

    By 2015, the Shekau’s faction became officially ISIL’s West Africa branch (ISWA). Mid 2016, due to internal discord between the IS worldwide leadership and the previous Boko Haram leaders, IS announced that it had appointed Abu-Musab al-Barnawi as the new leader of the group.

    Shekau refused to accept al-Barnawi’s appointment as leader and vowed to fight him while stating that he was still loyal to ISIL’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The group has since split into pro-Barnawi and pro-Shekau factions, with reports of armed clashes breaking out between them.

    Occidental political/military support:

    In 2015, an occidental military coalition (US, France, British) deployed troops to (Cameroon, Niger, Tchad, Nigeria), with the approval of the governments concerned. Their primary mission is to provide intelligence support to local forces as well as conducting reconnaissance flights. A program is also conduct to transfer military vehicles to the local Armies to aid in their fight against Islamist militants.

    Rapid current stocktaking:

    Following these counter-offensive and military support, several capitals city of Local Governmental Areas (LGAs) of Borno State were liberated. But out of the city, in the country side, the Boko Haram superiority is maintained. => At the end of the 3rd quarterly of 2016, from 60 to 80% of Borno State is considered as being under the control of Boko Haram.

    Since the current insurgency started in 2009, it has killed 20,000 and displaced 2.3 million from their homes and was ranked as the world’s deadliest terror group by the Global Terrorism Index in 2015.

    Our action in the field:

    PUI has been present in Nigeria since April 2016. The NGO is willing to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State through a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s affected by the crisis with means of subsistence (Food Security & Livelihood), the access to the basic services (Primary Health Care, Nutrition) and the living conditions (Shelter, NFI, WASH, etc.).

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states.

    As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri. The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, and Sanitation).

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau. This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months.

    Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In order to perform the objective mentioned above, Première Urgence Internationale aims to develop a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s needs in Food Security, Health, Shelter and WASH.

In 1999, CRS opened an office in Nigeria, and greatly expanded HIV/AIDS programming through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in 2004.

    Programmatic areas in Nigeria have since expanded to include all 3 Strategic Program Areas (SPAs) health, agriculture and emergency response & recovery as well as cross cutting efforts in capacity building and governance.

    CRS in Nigeria is currently implementing two large USAID-funded programs, Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project & SMILE, focusing on agriculture-livelihoods and orphans and vulnerable children respectively, and has recently been appointed Principal Recipient (PR) for Malaria by the Global Fund and will be responsible for the distribution of millions of Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLIN) this year.

    CRS has a growing Emergency Response & Recovery portfolio supporting thousands of vulnerable households in the northeast where the economic system has been severely disrupted as a result of Armed Opposition Group (AOG) activity.

    CRS, through both private and public donor funding, implements directly and supports partners in the implementation of emergency programs in the sectors of food security, non-food, livelihoods, shelter and WASH. An important programs and logistics base has been established in Maiduguri, Borno State, to support the agency’s northeast operations.

    CRS has identified Nigeria as a “Top 10” country for business development based on the many opportunities and the great need with over 100 million people surviving on less than $1.25 per day. The country program has grown over the past few years with potential to grow further. CRS seeks a Supply Chain Manager to provide management, guidance and support in the management and administration of the country program’s supply chain.

    URGENT - Finance Manager - Re-Advertisement

    Who are we?

    The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a private, independent, humanitarian organization working on all aspects of the refugee cause in more than 30 countries throughout the world. The aim of DRC is to protect refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) against persecution and to promote durable solutions to the problems of forced migration, on the basis of humanitarian principles and human rights.

    DRC works in accordance with the UN Conventions on Refugees and the Code of Conduct for the ICRC and NGOs in Disaster Relief.

    The protection and assistance to conflict affected population is provided within a long term, regional and rights based approach in order to constitute a coherent and effective response to the challenges posed by today’s conflicts.

    Assistance consists of relief and other humanitarian aid, rehabilitation, support to return and repatriation as well as promotion of long term solutions to displacement and its causes. In addition, support and capacity building of local and national authorities and NGOs form an integral part of DRC’s work.

    DRC in West Africa

    The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) has been operational in West Africa since 1998. Our aim is to contribute to the peace and stabilization, protection and promotion of durable solutions to crisis affected populations in the region. The overall strategic objective of the program is to support conflict affected populations in Nigeria, Niger, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, and Mali on the basis of humanitarian principles and fundamental human rights.

    DRC In Nigeria

    In 2015, DRC has opened a new country program in Nigeria focusing on responding to the huge humanitarian needs and challenges in the North East of Nigeria. Nigeria’s north-east is currently experiencing a significant humanitarian crisis, which has been the result of the ongoing-armed conflict between Boko Haram, the Nigerian military and the Multi-National Task Force in the north-east.

    An estimated 15 million people in Nigeria are affected by the conflict and other factors, which has led to a state of emergency being declared in three North-Eastern states and spill-over effects into neighbouring countries. High insecurity in the region has made access for humanitarian actors extremely difficult and further exacerbates the situation.

    DRC operation was initially focused on Yola and Mubi in Adamawa State & in Maiduguri, Borno State and from there we will focus on meeting the basic needs (protection, WASH, food security, NFI and shelter) of urban caseloads as well as supporting outreach to affected areas and displacement camps.

    Nigeria - Head of Mission

    COOPI - NGO

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations. COOPI – Nigeria

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Nigeria - A Head of Mission

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs.

    Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs :

    Following the intensification of the Chad Lake conflict in Nigeria (North East of the Country), PUI has decided to also respond to this crisis (since the organization already assist the Nigerian refugees in Cameroon) from Nigeria.

    Prerequisite of Nigeria:

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as one of the first economy of the continent thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…).

    Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge inequalities between rich and poor, and from a high rate of corruption, at every level. Moreover, a great ethnic diversity (more than language groups led by the family or clan manner) mixed with a federal mechanism make it a real powder keg.

    Historical and North East statehood:

    The current Nigeria is an agglomeration of both the Northern and Southern protectorate, which were amalgamated in 1914, only about a decade after the defeat of the Sokoto Caliphate and other Islamic states by the British which were to constitute much of Northern Nigeria.

    In those days, Cameroon, the eastern bordering country, was divided in French and British parts. Following a plebiscite in 1961, the Northern Cameroons opted to join Nigeria. The territory concerned made up much of what is now Northeastern Nigeria, and a large part of the areas affected by the North insurgency.

    Borno State Insurgency’s origins:

    Boko Haram (Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād -> « People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad ») was officially founding in 2002. Boko Haram conducted its operations more or less peacefully during the first seven years of its existence. During that period, the government reportedly repeatedly ignored warnings about the increasingly militant character of the organization.

    Boko Haram uprising:

    The situation changed in 2009 when the Nigerian government launched an investigation into the group’s activities following reports that its members were arming themselves. The present insurgency in Borno State began in 2009, when the jihadist rebel group Boko Haram started an armed rebellion against the government of Nigeria. Originally the group had alleged links to al-Qaeda.

    The insurgency took place within the context of long-standing issues of religious violence between Nigeria’s Muslim and Christian communities. When the government came into action, several members of the group were arrested, sparking deadly clashes with Nigerian security forces. The group’s founder and then leader Mohammed Yusuf was killed during this time while still in police custody.

    Escalating conflict:

    After the killing of M. Yusuf, the group carried out its first terrorist attack in Borno in January 2010. Since then, the violence has only escalated in terms of both frequency and intensity. In addition of that, in 2012, tensions within Boko Haram resulted in gradual split of the group between a conservative faction named Ansaru, led by Abu Usmatul al-Ansari, and the more dominant, violent faction led by Abubakar Shekau.

    In 2013, Nigerian governmental has started to apply a state of emergency in North Est Nigeria (Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa) => Nigeria forces launched an offensive in the Borno region in an attempt to dislodge Boko Haram fighters. The offensive had initial success, but the Boko Haram rebels were able to regain their strength. The violence escalated dramatically in 2014, with 10,849 deaths.

    Regional/International impact:

    In 2014, Boko Haram militants attacked several Nigerian towns in the North and captured them. The insurgency spread to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad, and Niger thus becoming a major regional conflict.

    This prompted the Nigerian government to launch an offensive, and with the help of Chad, Niger, and Cameroon. In 2015, a coalition of military forces from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger began a counter-insurgency campaign against Boko Haram. The coalition offensive forced Boko Haram to retreat into the Sambisa Forest (South East of Maiduguri City).

    Recent developments of the conflict:

    By 2015, the Shekau’s faction became officially ISIL’s West Africa branch (ISWA). Mid 2016, due to internal discord between the IS worldwide leadership and the previous Boko Haram leaders, IS announced that it had appointed Abu-Musab al-Barnawi as the new leader of the group.

    Shekau refused to accept al-Barnawi’s appointment as leader and vowed to fight him while stating that he was still loyal to ISIL’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The group has since split into pro-Barnawi and pro-Shekau factions, with reports of armed clashes breaking out between them.

    Occidental political/military support:

    In 2015, an occidental military coalition (US, France, British) deployed troops to (Cameroon, Niger, Tchad, Nigeria), with the approval of the governments concerned. Their primary mission is to provide intelligence support to local forces as well as conducting reconnaissance flights. A program is also conduct to transfer military vehicles to the local Armies to aid in their fight against Islamist militants.

    Rapid current stocktaking:

    Following these counter-offensive and military support, several capitals city of Local Governmental Areas (LGAs) of Borno State were liberated. But out of the city, in the country side, the Boko Haram superiority is maintained. => At the end of the 3rd quarterly of 2016, from 60 to 80% of Borno State is considered as being under the control of Boko Haram.

    Since the current insurgency started in 2009, it has killed 20,000 and displaced 2.3 million from their homes and was ranked as the world’s deadliest terror group by the Global Terrorism Index in 2015.

    Humanitarian consequences:

    The HNO 2017 estimated that some 14 million people are in need of assistance across the six states of the north east. In determining the response for 2017, humanitarian partners agreed to focus on states assessed as the most affected by the violent conflict, infrastructure destruction, mass displacement, ongoing insecurity and ensuing factors. The highest numbers of people requiring humanitarian assistance are located in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe where 8.5 million people are in need of urgent life-saving assistance.

    The approach of the humanitarian community is to respond to the most life-threatening needs of 6.9 million people in the three most (Borno, Yobe, Adamawa) affected states of North East Nigeria.

    Our action in the field:

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016. The NGO is willing to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State through a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s affected by the crisis with means of subsistence (Food Security & Livelihood), the access to the basic services (Primary Health Care, Nutrition) and the living conditions (Shelter, NFI, WASH, etc.).

    Since the most urgent need was (and is still) the food assistance, PUI has starting to intervene within this crisis by providing food aid through Cash Based Interventions to the affected local populations (both IDPs and Host Communities). Now, PUI is extending its activities to other sectors linked to primary needs and/or to the creation of employment and livelihoods.

    CRS in Nigeria is currently implementing two large USAID-funded programs, Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project & SMILE, focusing on agriculture-livelihoods and orphans and vulnerable children respectively, and has recently been appointed Principal Recipient (PR) for Malaria by the Global Fund.

    CRS has a growing Emergency Response & Recovery portfolio supporting thousands of vulnerable households in the northeast where the economic system has been severely disrupted as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency.

    CRS has identified Nigeria as a “Top 10” country for business development based on the many opportunities and the great need with over 100 million people surviving on less than $1.25 per day.

    NIGERIA – A Security Advisor in Maiduguri

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs.

    Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs :

    Following the intensification of the Chad Lake conflict in Nigeria (North East of the Country), PUI has decided to also respond to this crisis (since the organization already assist the Nigerian refugees in Cameroon) from Nigeria.

    Prerequisite of Nigeria:

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as one of the first economy of the continent thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge inequalities between rich and poor, and from a high rate of corruption, at every level.

    Moreover, a great ethnic diversity (more than language groups led by the family or clan manner) mixed with a federal mechanism make it a real powder keg.

    Historical and North East statehood:

    The current Nigeria is an agglomeration of both the Northern and Southern protectorate, which were amalgamated in 1914, only about a decade after the defeat of the Sokoto Caliphate and other Islamic states by the British which were to constitute much of Northern Nigeria.

    In those days, Cameroon, the eastern bordering country, was divided in French and British parts. Following a plebiscite in 1961, the Northern Cameroons opted to join Nigeria. The territory concerned made up much of what is now Northeastern Nigeria, and a large part of the areas affected by the North insurgency.

    Borno State Insurgency’s origins:

    Boko Haram (Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād -> « People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad ») was officially founding in 2002. Boko Haram conducted its operations more or less peacefully during the first seven years of its existence. During that period, the government reportedly repeatedly ignored warnings about the increasingly militant character of the organization.

    Boko Haram uprising:

    The situation changed in 2009 when the Nigerian government launched an investigation into the group’s activities following reports that its members were arming themselves. The present insurgency in Borno State began in 2009, when the jihadist rebel group Boko Haram started an armed rebellion against the government of Nigeria. Originally the group had alleged links to al-Qaeda.

    The insurgency took place within the context of long-standing issues of religious violence between Nigeria’s Muslim and Christian communities. When the government came into action, several members of the group were arrested, sparking deadly clashes with Nigerian security forces. The group’s founder and then leader Mohammed Yusuf was killed during this time while still in police custody.

    Escalating conflict:

    After the killing of M. Yusuf, the group carried out its first terrorist attack in Borno in January 2010. Since then, the violence has only escalated in terms of both frequency and intensity.

    In addition of that, in 2012, tensions within Boko Haram resulted in gradual split of the group between a conservative faction named Ansaru, led by Abu Usmatul al-Ansari, and the more dominant, violent faction led by Abubakar Shekau.

    In 2013, Nigerian governmental has started to apply a state of emergency in North Est Nigeria (Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa) => Nigeria forces launched an offensive in the Borno region in an attempt to dislodge Boko Haram fighters. The offensive had initial success, but the Boko Haram rebels were able to regain their strength. The violence escalated dramatically in 2014, with 10,849 deaths.

    Regional/International impact:

    In 2014, Boko Haram militants attacked several Nigerian towns in the North and captured them. The insurgency spread to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad, and Niger thus becoming a major regional conflict. This prompted the Nigerian government to launch an offensive, and with the help of Chad, Niger, and Cameroon.

    In 2015, a coalition of military forces from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger began a counter-insurgency campaign against Boko Haram. The coalition offensive forced Boko Haram to retreat into the Sambisa Forest (South East of Maiduguri City).

    Recent developments of the conflict:

    By 2015, the Shekau’s faction became officially ISIL’s West Africa branch (ISWA). Mid 2016, due to internal discord between the IS worldwide leadership and the previous Boko Haram leaders, IS announced that it had appointed Abu-Musab al-Barnawi as the new leader of the group.

    Shekau refused to accept al-Barnawi’s appointment as leader and vowed to fight him while stating that he was still loyal to ISIL’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The group has since split into pro-Barnawi and pro-Shekau factions, with reports of armed clashes breaking out between them.

    Occidental political/military support:

    In 2015, an occidental military coalition (US, France, British) deployed troops to (Cameroon, Niger, Tchad, Nigeria), with the approval of the governments concerned. Their primary mission is to provide intelligence support to local forces as well as conducting reconnaissance flights. A program is also conduct to transfer military vehicles to the local Armies to aid in their fight against Islamist militants.

    Rapid current stocktaking:

    Following these counter-offensive and military support, several capitals city of Local Governmental Areas (LGAs) of Borno State were liberated. But out of the city, in the country side, the Boko Haram superiority is maintained. => At the end of the 3rd quarterly of 2016, from 60 to 80% of Borno State is considered as being under the control of Boko Haram.

    Since the current insurgency started in 2009, it has killed 20,000 and displaced 2.3 million from their homes and was ranked as the world’s deadliest terror group by the Global Terrorism Index in 2015.

    Humanitarian consequences:

    The HNO 2017 estimated that some 14 million people are in need of asssitance across the six states of the north east. In determining the response for 2017, humanitarian partners agreed to focus on states assessed as the most affected by the violent conflict, infrastructure destruction, mass displacement, ongoing insecurity and ensuing factors.

    The highest numbers of people requiring humanitarian assistance are located in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe where 8.5 million people are in need of urgent life-saving assistance. The approach of the humanitarian community is to respond to the most life-threatening needs of 6.9 million people in the three most (Borno, Yobe, Adamawa) affected states of North East Nigeria.

    Our action in the field:

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016. The NGO is willing to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State through a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s affected by the crisis with means of subsistence (Food Security & Livelihood), the access to the basic services (Primary Health Care, Nutrition) and the living conditions (Shelter, NFI, WASH, etc.).

    Since the most urgent need was (and is still) the food assistance, PUI has starting to intervene within this crisis by providing food aid through Cash Based Interventions to the affected local populations (both IDPs and Host Communities). Now, PUI is extending its activities to other sectors linked to primary needs and/or to the creation of employment and livelihoods.

    As part of our activities in Nigeria, we are looking for a Security Advisor.

    Under the supervision and the direction of the Head of Mission, the Security Advisor initiates all appropriate risk management protocoles/guidance/tools/support services, related to the safety and security, and the protection of assets in mission.

    Contracts Administrator - Award Management, Nigeria

    Job Title: Contracts Administrator - Award Management

    Department/Country: Nigeria

    Position: Full Time

    Band: D

    FLSA: Exempt

    Reports To: Deputy Country Representative/Operations

    About CRS:

    Catholic Relief Services 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 (CRS) is an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in 93 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons on the basis of need, regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality.

    CRS works through local church and non-church partners to implement its programs. Therefore, strengthening and building the capacity of these partner organizations is fundamental to our approach in every country in which CRS operates.

    CRS came to Nigeria in 1960 to provide humanitarian assistance in collaboration with the Catholic Church until it was requested to leave during the Biafran War. In 1999, CRS opened an office in Nigeria, and greatly expanded HIV/AIDS programming through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in 2004.

    Programmatic areas in Nigeria have since expanded to include all 3 Strategic Program Areas (SPAs) health, agriculture and emergency response & recovery as well as cross cutting efforts in capacity building and governance.

    CRS in Nigeria is currently implementing two large USAID-funded programs, Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project & SMILE, focusing on agriculture-livelihoods and orphans and vulnerable children respectively, and has recently been appointed Principal Recipient (PR) for Malaria by the Global Fund.

    CRS has a growing Emergency Response & Recovery portfolio supporting thousands of vulnerable households in the northeast where the economic system has been severely disrupted as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency.

    CRS has identified Nigeria as a “Top 10” country for business development based on the many opportunities and the great need with over 100 million people surviving on less than $1.25 per day.

    The country program has grown over the past few years with potential to grow further. CRS seeks a Contracts Administrator to provide management, guidance and support in the management and administration of contracts to enable the country program to confidently apply for and competently administer USG contracts.

    Job Summary: Reporting to the Deputy Country Representatives/Operations, the Contracts Administrator assists the country program through guidance and support in contracts related matters at various stages of contracts management such as project design, proposal development, start up, implementation, close-out and after-action learning and review.

    S/he will provide support to the country program in preparing for and successfully submitting Request for Proposals (RFPs) and the subsequent implementation of contracts, subcontracts, grants under contracts (GUCs), and consultancy and vendor agreements issued under acquisition.

    This would include developing the necessary policies, procedures, manuals and systems for successful contract management and administration, with the attendant trainings for staff to build capacity in their respective sectors, as applicable.

    Additionally, s/he will work to increase capacity to proactively manage various agency and donor policies and standards related to acquisition.

    The Contracts Administrator will work with regional and HQ risk and compliance managers as needed to ensure seamless support to the country program and will contribute actively to the Contract Administration & Management Communities of Practice.

    Nigeria - Head of Mission

    COOPI - NGO

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations.

    COOPI – Nigeria

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Position: Head of Mission

    Copy editor: Review of CHEWs pre Service Training Curriculum

    Background

    The recently approved task shifting/task sharing policy is one of the strategies for accelerating the progress towards achievements of the health SDGs goals. The policy focuses on key priority areas such as Reproductive, Maternal Newborn and Child Health services (RMNCH), as well as HIV, TB, Malaria and other communicable and non-communicable diseases in the Essential health services package.

    The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGON) recognizes the importance of family planning as a key factor in the achievement of the health related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs 4, 5 & 6).

    In addition to ensuring availability of free and quality contraceptives, health workers need current information and skills to facilitate provision of quality family planning services, including long acting reversible contraceptive methods (LARC).

    These methods, which include implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs), have historically been underutilized, largely due to limited availability and low coverage of trained providers.

    It is in response to this that the approved task shifting/task sharing policy allows Community health extension workers (CHEW) to provide the Long acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) services as one of the methods of family planning.

    As part of implementation planning for the policy, it is necessary to review the pre service curriculum of CHEWs to include training on LARC. This is a cost effective way of building skills of CHEWS on the provision of LARC services.

    The Federal ministry of health (FMOH) in collaboration with Marie Stopes International Organization of Nigeria (MSION) therefore requires the services of a junior consultant to work with the lead consultant in the review of the current pre service training curriculum of CHEWs to include training on LARCs.

    Reporting to:

    The consultant will report to MSION through the Head, Reproductive Health Division (RHD), at the Federal Ministry of Health and must have signed off on all deliverables before the Head RHD FMOH will adjudge the assignment as completed.

    Duration of contract: 15 working days

    Cash Transfer Specialist

    Background

    Towards accelerating growth and development in Nigeria, the federal government has recently rolled out a comprehensive Social protection Programme, to address unemployment and better the condition of living of the extremely poor and vulnerable Nigerians.

    The sum of Five Hundred Billion Naira has already been approved in the 2016 Appropriation Act to finance this social intervention programme.

    Specific schemes under this programme include the creation of Five Hundred Thousand teaching assistance for qualified teachers for a period of 12 to 24 months in the first instance; the training of one hundred thousand artisans and the provision of soft loans for them to commence business activities; and conditional cash transfer which is intended to pay the sum of N5, 000.00 to one million Nigerians across the country.

    Others are micro credit scheme for more than 1.5 million Nigerians and N50,000 education support grant for 100,000 students in tertiary institutions who are undergoing courses in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Education.

    Another key component of this programme is the National Home Grown School Feeding Scheme targeted at 24 Million pupils in eighteen pilot states in 2016. The food for the programme, which will run till 2020 would be sourced from local farmers and prepared by qualified caterers within the host communities.

    The Government of Nigeria is partnering with the World Bank to support the development of the social safety nets in Nigeria under a National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP). To implement NASSP, the Government has established a National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office (NASSCO) to consolidate existing social safety net programs at the Federal level, and a National Cash Transfer Office (NCTO) to operate safety nets transfers to targeted poor and vulnerable households across Nigeria.

    NASSP involves two components: (i) establishing systems for social safety net that would serve as a robust platform for effectively targeting and delivering social assistance; and (ii) implementing cash transfers to targeted poor and vulnerable households. The program has national coverage, with all states eligible to participate.

    The systems developed for social safety net in Nigeria will be used across the country’s different safety net programs, irrespective of funding source or targeted beneficiary group.

    A Project Coordinator of NCTO is responsible for the administration of cash transfers and livelihoods. Additional managerial and technical staffs are expected to support NASSCO and NCTO.

    Donor supported social protection programmes have already been existing in the country towards promoting different aspect of wellbeing of the citizens. One of such large-scale social protection programmes is being implemented by SCI and ACF with funding from DFID in Northern Nigeria, the Child Development Grant Programme (CDGP).

    CDGP provides an unconditional cash transfer of 3,500 NGN per month to pregnant women and women with children under the age of two (2) in Zamfara and Jigawa accompanied by behavioural change communication, to tackle poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition.

    The programme is being implemented with close collaboration and involvement of state governments. The programme is aimed at reducing the prevalence of stunting and improving food security.

    Over three years of implementation of this programme has led to tremendous progress in tackling child poverty with particular reference to malnutrition. The programme has also recorded a high rate of success in the operational aspect of its implementation.

    Such good knowledge in management of cash transfer programme needs to be shared widely especially in a country where social protection programming is quite at its elementary level.

    Vitamin A Coverage Survey in WINNN implementing States - Consultancy

    Introduction

    The MNCH week is a weeklong event that aims to deliver a package of high-impact, low-cost maternal, newborn and child health interventions, proven to be highly effective in both reducing mortality rates and improving mother and child health.

    The MNCH Week is held twice (May and November) every year in Nigeria to deliver a set of interventions that include Vitamin A supplementation (VAS), deworming, immunization, Nutrition assessment, Iron-folate supplementation and health promotion on hand washing, early initiation, exclusive breastfeeding, complementary feeding to mention a few. The MNCHW is a program that is also aimed at strengthening the Primary Health Care System.

    Project Background

    Working to Improve Nutrition in Northern Nigeria (WINNN) is a six year (September 2011 – August 2017) DFID funded nutrition project being implemented in five northern Nigeria states namely; Jigawa, Katsina, Kebbi, Yobe and Zamfara States.

    The Implementing partners of WINNN are UNICEF, Save the Children (SCI) and Action Against Hunger (AAH) while the Operation Research and Impact Evaluation component of the program is conducted by consortium of research institutes lead by Oxford Policy Management (OPM).

    The WINNN program delivers a number of evidence based, cost-effective direct interventions for the prevention and treatment of malnutrition in children under 5, including vitamin A supplementation and deworming, Iron and Folate supplementation for pregnant women, the promotion of optimal Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices and Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM).

    The project also supports the Government to strengthen the capacity to develop and implement cost effective nutrition program, increases political and financial commitment to nutrition.

    By 2017 WINNN aims to have contributed to the reduction of the prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight by up to 20% over the 6 year period, thus contributing to a 43% reduction in childhood mortality.

    Justification

    Information reported on Vitamin A Supplementation (VAS) is often based on administrative data from “tally sheets” that record the number of 6 ‐ 59 month children receiving VAS at given health post.

    The indicator compares children supplemented against an estimated number of children that age living in the health post catchment area (target) calculated from the projection of the population Census 2016.

    These data are consolidated up through the health system infrastructure (i.e. health facility to the LGA, LGA to State and finally to National level) to arrive at National VAS coverage estimates. Discrepancies between this data and that of SMART surveys suggest that this method may be inaccurate.

    The proposed Vitamin A Coverage survey is in response to the recommendations from the DFID 2016 Annual Review of the programme on the need to conduct a survey to validate administrative coverage data for Vitamin A distributed during the Maternal Newborn and Child Health Weeks.The survey will be led by a consultant with support from the technical team of WINNN.

    Goal

    Assess the coverage of VAS during MNCHW in the WINNN implemented states in order to improve the planning, implementation and quality of VAS in view of WINNN commencing the implementation of its Exit strategy in early 2017.

    Objectives

  • Estimate the coverage of VAS during the November 2016 round of MNCHW in WINNN implementing states
  • Compare with administrative data reported by State Government and analyse discrepancies
  • Identify barriers to access and utilization of VAS services

    Methodology

    The Vitamin A Coverage Survey will be based on cluster sampling using a 30x30 approach to reach 900 children and the utilization of probability proportional to population size for cluster selection in implementing states with data collation carried out within 5 days.

    This proposed sampling method may be subject to review should the engaged consultant present a superior argument for a change of approach.Data collection will be through Household survey, ideally data should be collected with android phones.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon.

    The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states. As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri.

    The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, and Sanitation).

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to cover the needs of crisis affected people in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In order to perform the objective mentioned above, Première Urgence Internationale aims to develop a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting the people’s needs in Food Security, Health, Shelter and WASH.

    If a regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Consultant-Knowledge management and communication-Nigeria

    Deadline to apply January 3rd 2017

    Scope of Work

    International Communication Consultant – ENGINE Program

    Background

    The Coca-Cola Company, in strategic partnership with the UK Department for International Development's Girls Education Challenge (DfID-GEC), is funding an innovative, multi-year, girl-focused project - Educating Nigerian Girls in New Enterprises (ENGINE) - to improve the learning outcomes and economic status of 18,000 marginalized adolescent girls.

    Mercy Corps Nigeria leads the implementation of the ENGINE program in the Northern states of Kano and Kaduna, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the metropolis of Lagos, targeting both Out-of- School Girls (OSGs) and In-School-Girls (ISGs) within 9-month intervention and implementation cycles.

    The ENGINE program is based upon a theory of change stating that when marginalised girls complete a full cycle of education and are supported by gatekeepers, they will be more skilled employees and have increased earning power and increased decision-making within the household.

    A chain of impact results are expected at the girl, household, business, community government policy and regional levels to achieve project outcomes following sustained engagement with gatekeepers including parents, faith & traditional leaders, government, teachers and other relevant stakeholders.

    Purpose of Consultancy: With the ENGINE project in the exit phase and implementation activities gradually winding down, the emphasis is increasingly shifting to creating impact content, donor-focused reports, and relevant documents to secure commitments from stakeholders who support girls' education and economic empowerment.

    The consultancy will focus on creating content for communication materials aimed at high-level stakeholders and the donor community to increase funding opportunities for future projects.

    Consequently, the consultant will develop content for strategic communication via scripted dramas, poems, recitations, infographics, newsletters, pamphlets, stickers and other Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials targeted at changing the perception of gatekeepers on girls' education and economic participation. Each communication material is expected to tell the ENGINE story.

    Specific Tasks: The consultant will be required to undertake the following tasks:

  • Review end of project report and ensure that the report covers outcomes and outputs of the ENGINE program from inception to completion.
  • Synthesize project impact statements into an easy-to-read report for segment stakeholders.
  • Review 40 success stories for the ENGINE stories of change pack to ensure compliance with DFID standards.

    Nigeria - Country Administrator

    COOPI – Nigeria

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations.

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its

    current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Objectives and responsibilities of the position

    We are looking for a highly qualified Country Administrator with overall responsibility for supervision, management and quality implementation of all aspects of COOPI financial and administrative operations in Nigeria.

  • Expenses planning and monitoring: In collaboration with the Project Manager (and the logistician if present) he/she makes the project’s financial planning.

  • Procurement: He/she provide technical oversight to the procurement process and ensure proper supply chain management procedures are in place and that standard logistics and related administrative systems are established and implemented within COOPI country programme.

    Nigeria - Country Administrator

    COOPI – Nigeria

    COOPI Cooperazione Internazionale, is a humanitarian, non-confessional and independent organization founded in 1965 in Milan, Italy. For more than 50 years** we have been dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and to supporting populations affected by wars, socio-economic crises or natural disasters in their path to recovery and sustainable development, by making use of the professionalism of local and international operators, and through our partnerships with public and private bodies and civil society organizations.

    Context and background

    Since the declaration of state of emergency in the Nigerian federal States of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa, the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency has led to multiple displacement crises, with communities fleeing their area of origin to take refuge in camps or host communities.

    In 2014 there was a substantial increase in violence related to Boko Haram and the counter insurgency operations, consequently creating acute and largely unmet humanitarian needs, as IDPs are cut off from their homes and livelihoods, basic services, kinship and social ties.

    In September 2014, COOPI began operating in north eastern Nigeria in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the insurgency, established its operation in Bauchi State and later expanded to Yobe State considering the heightened presence of IDPs in the LGAs of Fika, Damaturu, Potiskum, Geidam and Yunusari. Recently, COOPI initiated an assessment mission in Borno State and establishes

    a presence in Maiduguri to launch operations in the most affected area of the Lake Chad crisis. COOPI is currently operating in 5 LGAs in Yobe State, reaching about 25,000 individuals among IDPs and host communities with a multi-sectoral intervention covering nutrition, food security and child protection.

    COOPI has recently developed a cash & voucher based response system in Nigeria to address the food insecure communities while integrating this approach with a nutrition component – community outreach, referral system, IYCF campaign and appropriate therapeutic services addressed to malnourished children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Given the unfolding large scale emergency in the north eastern Nigeria, COOPI plans to scale up its

    current operations in Yobe state and reach newly accessible areas, in addition to areas receiving Nigerian returnees from Niger, with its multi-sectoral services including food security, cash transfer programming, nutrition and protection.

    Furthermore, COOPI plans to set-up operations to extend its humanitarian services to affected populations in Borno state, including the capital Maiduguri and newly accessible areas in the state, where the most vulnerable populations are stuck with insufficient basic services to respond to their immediate needs in a dignified manner.

    Objectives and Responsibilities of the position

    We are looking for a highly qualified Country Administrator with overall responsibility for supervision, management and quality implementation of all aspects of COOPI financial and administrative operations in Nigeria.

He/she ensures the correct filing of all project’s administrative documents.
  • Expenses planning and monitoring: In collaboration with the Project Manager (and the logistician if present) he/she makes the project’s financial planning. He/she monitors expenses, in accordance with the budget. He/she provides the accountancy data to the Project Manager so as to allow him to monitor and plan the expenditures and to request funds.
  • Contract modifications and administrative documents: He/she collaborates with the Project Manager in the elaboration of contract modifications (including the budget), and in the preparation of all necessary projects documents.
  • Financial reporting: In coordination with the Head of Mission and with the Project Manager he/she prepares the intermediate and final financial reports for the projects under his/her responsibility.

  • Procurement: He/she provide technical oversight to the procurement process and ensure proper supply chain management procedures are in place and that standard logistics and related administrative systems are established and implemented within COOPI country programme.

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge socio-economic inequalities, and from high rates of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin), renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State in april 2015, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. Abubakar Shekau has taken over the leadership of the group after Yusuf died in detention in 2009 and has radicalizeds BH’s actions in the Lake Chad Basin.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of, Borno, Adamawa and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states.

    As of today, OCHA estimated that 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 1.8 million are displaced in the sole city of Maiduguri. The main need is related to Food Security, and access to basic services (Water, Health, Sanitation ).

    If A regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group.

    In August 2016, Al-Barnawi was appointed as the new leader by the high commandment of ISIS for the western African province of the Islamic State, which caused a scission inside the group between ISWA (Islamic State in Western Africa) led by Al-Barnawi and Boko Haram “historical channel” led by Abubakar Shekau.

    This scission might cause changes in the security context in the coming months. Armed clashes are still ongoing in Borno state drastically reducing access to the vulnerable populations outside Maiduguri, in Local Government Areas of Borno State.

    Our action in the field

    PUI is present in Nigeria since April 2016, and wishes to extend its coverage of the needs of vulnerable population in Borno State, and particularly in Maiduguri city.

    In a comprehensive and integrated approach, Première Urgence Internationale wishes to develop its positioning in Health, Shelter and WASH to complete its current intervention in Food security.

    Midwife (M/F) - Nigeria

It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies.
