Based in Nairobi with frequent travel to field sites
HelpAge International (www.helpage.org) is the secretariat to the HelpAge Global Network, which brings together a wide range of organisations and individuals working to promote the rights and meet the needs of older women and men, nationally and internationally.
Our long-term vision is to establish a global movement of strong connected age focused and older people led platforms in every country in the world.
Only by collaborating together can we achieve a world in which all older people can lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives.
We aim to extend the reach and influence of the HelpAge Global Network to all those in a position to help bring about our vision for older people – including Governments, regional institutions, policy makers, development partners, the private sector, UN organisations and academic institutions.
Kenya, a country of approximately 50 million has about 1.8 million older people.
The Government of Kenya over the years has been developing various policies and programmes aimed at improving the well being of older persons and has the potential to play an important role within Africa and international forums advocating for older persons rights.
In Kenya, HelpAge International has been working closely with various ministries of the Government of Kenya and other partners to develop relevant policy framework and programming for older persons focused on the issues of social protection, health and emergencies.
As part of the team the Project Officer will be responsible for mobilizing and coordinating partner level work, reporting, financial and programme Monitoring, Evaluation Accountability and Learning of the HelpAge International’s AFD and Maxwell Harvey funded health projects in Kenya funded.
