FRANCOPHONE FOOD SECURITY AND RESILIENCE GENDER TECHNICAL ADVISOR
About the organization
CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good.
The Food Security and Resilience Gender Advisor will provide gender expertise, guidance, and technical support to CARE's USAID-funded Food for Peace (FFP) and USDA-funded McGovern Dole Food for Education and Child Nutrition (FFECN) programs, as well as other FNS-supported projects throughout the year. S/he will ensure that CARE's gender principles and practices are reflected and practiced in high-quality programmatic implementation by providing high-quality technical support to CARE’s FNS programs, regardless of whether-or-not CARE is leading on gender. The Advisor will ensure that gender program analyses, assessments, implementation plans, reports, and operations reflect CARE's rights-based approach to gender equality, as outlined by CARE’s International Gender Network (CIGN), and in accordance with CARE's Good Practices for Gender Analysis and other key gender frameworks.
He/she will also ensure that gender integration work is consistent with FFP and USDA guidance, addressing all aspects of a program’s Theory of Change. Expected support will include designing and leading master training on gender; the design and implementation of gender analyses and follow-up action plans; supporting gender-related research; gender-related monitoring and evaluation; and providing expert guidance on gender-related matters. S/he will also lead working group discussions across programs, to further knowledge-sharing and innovation across different country programs.
