NGO Jobs in Nigeria

Nuru International is a social venture committed to ending extreme poverty in remote, rural areas by offering locally-led training in agriculture, household savings, healthcare, and education.

Nuru focuses on cultivating service-minded leaders and equipping people with tools and knowledge to lead their communities out of extreme poverty. Using local income-generating activities, Nuru sustains its work and funds program scaling into neighboring districts – thereby multiplying impact.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Monitoring & Evaluation Program Specialist
: Adamawa
Term: 2 year contract in a field intensive role
Reports to: Team Leader
Start Date: Q1 2018
Nigeria Project Overview

Nuru is focused on ending extreme poverty in remote, rural areas and knows that a unique solution is needed for highly fragile states:

“Fragile states are lagging behind in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Without urgent action they will be home to more than half of the world’s poor after 2018. Declining foreign aid and other external resources are not enough to drive development and stability in these countries.” – OECD, Fragile States 2014 Domestic Revenue Mobilisation in Fragile States

Thus Nuru’s next project site is launching in 2018 in a fragile region in Nigeria. Our goal is to take a “boots on the ground” approach and hire a highly skilled team to launch this project with an established exit strategy in mind. Nuru’s model depends on the organization’s ability to identify, train and collaborate with highly capable local leaders to develop and implement sustainable poverty solutions.

The initial Nuru Nigeria project will be located in a semi-permissive environment with a fluid security situation.
