Freedom House seeks a Project Manager for the Burkina Faso Human Rights and Access to Justice Program, a three-year project in Burkina Faso funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. The project aims to build the capacity of civil society and human rights institutions to respond to the urgent human rights threats faced by Burkina Faso as a result of the breakdown of the rule of law caused by violent extremism and human rights violations committed by multiple actors. Freedom House is a partner of the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA-ROLI), who is the prime implementer of the project.
The Project Manager leads the implementation of Freedom House’s programming under the project, which will work to strengthen the capacity of civil society to conduct human rights documentation and advocacy. The Project Manager’s duties will include, but not be limited to, working with Freedom House headquarters and Ouagadougou office staff, including close coordination with the CoP, on strategic planning, program design, program implementation, monitoring and evaluation, staff supervision, and administration. The position is based in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and reports to the consortium Chief of Party (CoP), from ABA-ROLI, and to Freedom House headquarters.
