Position Description

By paying attention to problems that span across many sectors, such as gender, responsibility, child protection, and HIV/AIDS, GOAL executes a variety of multi-sectoral development, resilience, recovery, and humanitarian response activities.

The Oromiya regional state’s recovery and development are heavily focused on livelihoods, economic opportunities, health, the strengthening of the health and nutrition systems, and WASH with a strong emphasis on integrated programming and community-based approaches. GOAL E Humanitarian Response is centered on nutrition, WASH, livelihoods, multipurpose cash, NFIs, and protection interventions throughout the country. In Addis Abeba and Hawassa, the Street Children initiative is run in conjunction with local partners.
