Program Director in CAR , Central African Republic

For the Cordaid Country office in Central African Republic, Bangui, Cordaid is looking for a Program Director

Introduction

Cordaid has 30 years of experience in the Central African Republic, working with civil society partners and the Catholic Church on both emergency relief and long term development programs. In 2008 Cordaid decided to become operational itself in CAR, and opened offices in the provinces (Nana Mamberé) as well as in Bangui to carry out health programs through the performance based financing approach. The health program gradually expanded and was fledged out by activities in the field of Education, Security and Justice, Relief, Resilience and Food Security. The office was temporarily suspended in the fall of 2015 due to a periodically worsening security situation. In northern parts of the country relief operations are still necessary, whereas in other parts a shift can be made to longer term development. Donors (EU, Dutch Government, DFID, World Bank, UN agencies) now make larger funds available to enable flexible operations. Cordaid is known as a reputable partner and stands to attract significant donor funding.

The program, therefore, is expanding with investments in 2015 to the tune of € 5 mio expected to grow towards € 8 mio in 2018, staffing now at 6 expats (1 vacancy) and 100+ national staff over 4 offices, including the central office in Bangui.
