CRS SPO – Partnership and Organizational Capacity Building Jobs in Kenya

About Catholic Relief Services:

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

  • CRS has worked in Kenya since 1965. Over the years, CRS’s focus shifted from direct relief and food distributions to a comprehensive development program that works with partners and enhances the local capacity. CRS Kenya programs now support care reforms, children affected by H
    IV, and community-based efforts to increase household incomes, improve family health and sanitation, and enhance agricultural livelihoods.


  • CRS, with partner Maestral International, will work closely with the Department of Children Services (DCS), Department of Social Development, National Council for Persons with Disability, and other care reform actors to implement interventions to support care reform in Kenya.

  • CTWWC is an initiative that aims to leverage the existing strengths and efforts of key stakeholders as well as address identified gaps to move Kenya away from over-reliance on residential care facilities and towards stronger family-based care. CTWWC Kenya works with a wide range of actors, from the community to national levels, international funders, and regional bodies, to implement a comprehensive approach to care reform.

  • This includes but is not limited to government, LIPs, faith-based actors and institutions, mass media, the private sector, donors, caregiver groups, care leavers, and champions of children’s and disability rights. Some will be existing partners and LIPs and others will be new. New partnerships will be formed with Catholic Sister organizations, additional transitioning CCIs, and disability-focused organizations. The funding available through the IFS funding will help CTWWC to enhance, deepen, and scale work in strengthening families who are reintegrating with children and youth coming out of residential care, and families at risk
    of separation.
