Description of the unit / department:

Trócaire was established in 1973 as the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland and is inspired by the Catholic Social Teaching, with an overarching commitment to social justice. Trócaire is registered to operate in Rwanda and has a long history in Rwanda having opened an office in Kigali in 1994.  Today Trócaire works in 3 districts with 11 local partner organisations.

Since 1994, the country programme has registered success in conflict transformation, deepening citizen participation and accountable governance, value-chain and microfinance development.    From 2021-2025 in line with the Country Strategic Plan, Trócaire in Rwanda is delivering an integrated programme focusing on 3 main programme pillars – Resource Rights which builds on our previous Livelihoods work, Women’s Empowerment and supporting local organizations in their capacity strengthening and organizational development journey.

Background to the Role:

This role is a replacement role to the implementation of a 4-year project under the Resource Rights and Natural Resource Management programme Pillar and funded by Jersey Overseas Aid (JOA). The project is in its 3rd year and therefore we are looking for a project coordinator to successfully coordinate and manage the project till 30 June 2024.

Trócaire Rwanda, through its Resources Rights work will support rural, poor communities living around the Nyungwe National Park in Nyamagabe and Nyaruguru districts, to become empowered to assess, plan and sustainably manage their land and common natural resources leading to more environmentally and economically sustainable and resilient communities. The project will do this through a unique partnership approach in which livelihood, biodiversity and agro-ecology expertise is being combined with knowledge of- and acceptance by- the communities where the project will work.

Trócaire Rwanda implements the project through 3 partners.  Trócaire in Rwanda has been working alongside local partner organizations since July 1994 throughout the country. The local partner organizations identified for this project, are highly experienced local civil society organizations with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the domain of biodiversity conservation, community based mapping and action planning, bee keeping, income generation, small business creation and saving and lending. In addition, the local partner organizations have an operational presence in the targeted communities and have strong working relations with the targeted communities and local authorities.

For the candidate with required experience and passion for the role, Trócaire offers a competitive salary and benefits.
