Bridgeway Foundation Project Coordinator Jobs in Uganda

Bridgeway Foundation Project Coordinator Jobs in Uganda


Background

  • Uganda and eastern Congo have a history of shared non-state conflict and violent extremism. Establishing a cross-border approach to address these problems will lead to a higher chance of success.

  • This project will focus on reducing violence in the two countries from transnational armed groups by creating a coordinated process for defections and reintegration.

  • Without sufficiently coordinated steps, defectors often face a challenging and hostile reintegration environment.

  • This project will work with Ugandan and Congolese government, civil society, cultural and religious leaders to create a common understanding of the challenges facing the region.

  • This knowledge will inform the creation of humane and effective standard operating procedures for defection and reintegration, which will in turn be used to train communities on how best to welcome home returnees.
  • Effective defection and reintegration programs will encourage additional defections and reduce the likelihood of new recruitment, thereby weakening violent armed groups and making communities safer for all who live there.
