Pact in Eswatini has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Livelihood Programming Capacity Building Specialist. Pact has partnered with Young Heroes to build and sustain the capacity of local Implementing Partners and Prime Partners to implement strong OVC and DREAMS programming in the current project Eswatini Ready, Resourceful, Risk Aware OVC, Adolescent Girls, and Young Women.

The PCRV will support technical guidance to Pact, Young Heroes, USAID Prime Partners and Sub Awardees on Livelihoods programming and provide onsite technical capacity building to OVC and DREAMS implementing teams.
