Sustainable Agriculture and Livelihood Coordinator

Project Description

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in Togo has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteers (PCRVs) to serve as Sustainable Agriculture and Livelihood Coordinators. In 2022, ADRA-Togo launched the “IQUALIFE 2” program, based on outcome mapping/outcome harvesting approach, to strengthen the capacity of small-scale farmers, associations, cooperatives, service providers, and partnering NGOs to adopt positive behavioral change in agriculture and livelihood activities.

The PCRVs will work with Program District Field Officers to co-train and provide coaching on behavioral change communication, community sensitization/mobilization, formation of community committee, facilitation in implementation of livelihood activities with targeted communities. The PCRVs will also co-develop Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials on Behavioral Change Communication (BCC) to promote IQUALIFE 2 to targeted beneficiaries.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Togo together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
