Effective labour migration governance which fosters development benefits for migrants as well as the countries of destination and origin remains a global challenge, particularly in Africa. In most countries in Africa, as elsewhere in the world, migrant workers may not be entitled to the same benefits as nationals. Social security is a basic human right enshrined in major international instruments. However, migrant workers are often prevented from obtaining coverage from social security schemes due to their particular circumstances, especially the length of their periods of employment and residence, their status as non-nationals, as well as their immigrant status.

They risk the loss of entitlement to social security benefits in their country of origin due to their absence, and may at the same time encounter restrictive conditions under the social security system of the host country. Although these barriers to social security coverage are faced to varying degrees by migrant workers worldwide, they are especially acute for African migrant workers in Africa. In addition, female migration, counting for almost half of the migration flows in Africa, faces specific vulnerabilities and higher risks of abuse and human trafficking.

To enhance migration governance in Africa and protection of migrant workers, the ILO is implementing the project: Extending access to social protection and portability of benefits to migrant workers and their families in selected RECs in Africa (SP4MW project). The project is part of the AUC/ILO/IOM/ECA Joint Labour Migration Programme (JLMP) for Africa, a comprehensive programme on labour migration governance and designed to leverage migration for development and regional integration.
This position will work specifically on the implementation of EAC component of the project. S/He will be based in Arusha, within the EAC Secretariat offices, Department of Labour and Immigration under Social Sectors Directorate. The National Project Officer will assist in the implementation of the EAC Road Map towards the Revision and finalization of the Draft Council Directive on the Coordination of Social Security Benefits within the Common Market Protocol adopted by EAC social security experts in June 2018. Moreover, s/he will also assist in the overall delivery of EAC component outputs: (1) Support studies and desk research, including actuarial and financial assessments, of the implications of an EAC multilateral social protection instrument. The studies will inform the revision and finalization of the draft EAC Council Directive on the Coordination of social Security benefits; (2) Facilitate regional dialogues and consultations on social security coordination and portability of benefits towards the revision and finalization of the Draft EAC Council Directive on the Coordination of social Security benefits within the EAC Common Market; and (3) Provision of legal and actuarial advisory services to EAC Partner States in support of coordination of social security and the portability of social security benefits.

We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities. Our programmes are genuinely life-changing, but can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organisation.

2. Generating evidence on youth leadership from the pool of Restless Development Alumni and sharing it with external community.
3. Developing an advocacy plan working in collaboration with the team in host country and then implementing it in the home country by mobilizing other alumni of Restless Development.

All activities designed to achieve these results require the participants to learn as well as contribute to strengthening the organizational functions particularly engagement of CSOs and alumni through their knowledge and resources.

The participants will have a set of activities to complete both during and after the exchange. Through this exchange project, the participants will also be able to contribute towards organizational development by consolidating best practices document and supporting in the wider level dissemination to other Restless Development hubs including the partner hubs and relevant CSOs.

 Job: UNICEF: Consultant for The National WASH Advocacy Package for Religious Groups in Tanzania

A consultant for developing a comprehensive WASH Advocacy Package for Religious Groups in Tanzania. The package will provide guidance on how to engage Religious leaders in the WASH Sector in Tanzania.
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world’s leading children’s rights organization would like to hear from you.
In Tanzania, latrine coverage is high though much of it is composed of unimproved latrines. The 2015-16 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) reported that only 19% of the households used improved sanitation while 73% in rural areas used unimproved sanitation and 10% practiced open defecation. In the survey, a relatively high diarrhoea prevalence of 12% for children under five was reported. The high prevalence indicates that people are living in a faecally-contaminated environment. The challenge has been moving the big proportion of people using unproved latrines up the sanitation ladder and those practicing open defecation to adopt improved latrines. This calls for innovative strategies to help register results for children.
Local religious groups are usually found at the heart of the communities, not only upholding beliefs, cultural values and social traditions, but also as a force for positive change and development. The local religious groups present an opportunity to deliver and sustain improved sanitation and hygiene behaviors in Tanzania; as many as 97 per cent follow Christianity and Islam[1] in the mainland, while almost all people in Zanzibar are Muslim. A research by Tearfund,[2] (a CSO), identified five roles that religious leaders can engage in to contribute towards sustainable sanitation and hygiene promotion. They are: messenger, demonstrator, implementer, guardian, and advocate. In Tanzania, religious groups have adopted these roles in Njombe District where they participated in CLTS committees at the village level. The religious leaders were tasked with the responsibility of demonstration by constructing and using improved latrines at their institutions and homes and sensitizing their followers on issues to do with sanitation and hygiene. It is believed that this action contributed to the impressive results already recorded by Njombe DC of 99% improved household latrine coverage compared to other districts in the region.
According to the TDHS 2015/2016, 10% of Tanzanians still practice open defecation, in addition to a huge burden of 73% of the rural population using unimproved latrines that do not protect them from fecal contamination. Diarrhoea, one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among populations, accounts for 12% of the disease burden in children under 5 in Tanzania (TDHS 2015/2016). Globally, 88% of all diarrhoea is attributed to poor Water, sanitation and hygiene. Cholera is an indicator of ingestion of faecal matter either through food or water and as of 8th August 2018, there were 32,067 cases with 532 deaths and CFR 1.7 (MOHCDGEC daily report; WHO Fact Sheet 2018). Statistics on stunting in Tanzania are not any better. According to the TDHS 2015-2016, 2.7million (34%) of Tanzanian children suffer from stunted growth.
The WASH Advocacy package with religious leaders will guide on the different avenues where/how religious groups could contribute to engage in the WASH agenda in the country hence contributing to the achievement of National Sanitation Campaign, Tanzania Development Vision 2025, and the Sustainable Development Goals commitments by the Government of Tanzania to achieve a 100% basic sanitation service level by 2030. There is therefore an opportunity to nurture intentional engagement of a stakeholder group that has traditionally been left out of the WASH agenda in the country yet they have an enormous outreach to over 97% of Tanzanians.
This Advocacy WASH Package with religious leaders will also contribute to the UNICEF Tanzania Country Programme 2016/2021, Outputs 3 and 4 and is in line with the UNDAP WASH and Nutrition Outcomes in support of the Government of Tanzania and Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar’s coordinated, scaled up national response for improved water, sanitation, hygiene, and nutrition.
