IOM International NGO Migration Consultant Jobs in Kenya

Organizational Context and Scope

The Better Migration Management (BMM) Programme is a regional, multi-year, multipartner project funded by the European Union Trust Fund for Africa, and coordinated
by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) – the UN Migration Agency – is one of
the main implementing partners of the programme alongside British Council,CIVIPOL, Expertise France, GIZ, Italian State Police and UNODC.

The BMM programme takes a regional approach and aims to strengthen capacity to
improve migration management, in particular to prevent and address irregular migration, including smuggling of migrants and trafficking in human beings.

The intervention logic is based on four components:

  • support for policy and legislative
    development and harmonization for better migration and border governance;
  • Capacity building in the form of training, technical assistance and the provision of
    appropriate equipment to those implementing migration related policies;
  • Support to the identification, assistance and protection of migrants in need; and (4) awarenessraising with regards to alternative livelihood options, including safe migration.
  • IOM implements this two-year project in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda.
  • In order to fulfil IOM’s core mandate of managing migration health, in 2002, in
    collaboration with the Kamukunji District (now Sub-County) Health Management Team (SCHMT), IOM established the Eastleigh Community Wellness Centre (ECWC) in a migration-affected urban settlement in Nairobi, Kenya.
  • In partnership with the Ministry of Health (MOH) through the SCHMT, IOM via its
    implementing partner AMREF offers free, non-discriminatory, migrant-friendly and
  • comprehensive health care to urban migrants and community members.

    The Eastleigh Community Wellness Centre offers the following services:

  • Comprehensive HIV and tuberculosis services;
  • Sexual and reproductive health;
  • Nutrition health;
  • Curative services;
  • Preventive health;
  • Maternal and child health;
  • Water and sanitation; and
  • Community programming: One of the strengths of ECWC has been community
    involvement, including the establishment of a community unit, called okoa maisha community unit, with community health volunteers (CHVs).
  • CHVs act as the link between ECWC and the community.
  • They have been actively involved in building trust with the catchment population and connecting people to the health-care services offered.
