Level 3 - the responsibilities of the post may require the post holder to have regular contact with or access to children or young people

Recommended:

ROLE PURPOSE:
The transition to becoming a parent for the first time is a time of major life changes. At the same time that young mothers are removed from family, school, and social support networks, they must navigate caring for their own health while learning to care for a newborn. Young mothers (ages 15-24) are vulnerable to poor health outcomes and are also less likely than older women to access reproductive and maternal health services, including family planning. In Tanzania, the youngest mothers have the lowest use of modern postpartum family planning (PPFP) and the shortest intervals between births. Low use of effective methods of FP makes young mothers vulnerable to unintended pregnancies and rapid repeat pregnancies. Both younger age at first birth and closely spaced pregnancies contribute to increased risk for maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. Yet this transition to becoming a parent for the first time offers opportunities to improve life-long health and wellbeing for first-time mothers and their families.

In September 2019, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded the Connecting young parents to PPFP through diverse platforms (Connect) project to Save the Children. Connect will complement the USAID-funded Lishe Endelevu project led by Save the Children, which aims to reduce stunting in children under five and improve nutrition for women and children. Over 4 years, Connect will “enhance” the Lishe Endelevu project by introducing PPFP activities into Lishe Endelevu’s community support groups and supporting household visits for first-time mothers. In Tanzania, the project will be implemented in two phases. Phase One will be implemented in Kongwa District, Dodoma region from January 2021-May 2021. In Phase Two, Connect will expand implementation to additional regions and districts. Throughout, Connect will document and share results and implementation challenges and lessons learned.

Connect seeks to recruit one Project Officer to support the Project Coordinator in planning, coordination, and technical implementation of innovative integrated Postpartum Family planning and social behaviour change communication (SBCC) activities in Kongwa Dc . The Project Officer will build capacity of relevant stakeholders at district level and communities in Postpartum family planning throughout the first phase of project implementation. The Project Officer will also work closely with the Connect MEAL officer and Project Coordinator to ensure progress is achieved towards set targets. S/he will establish and maintain close and effective liaison with government partners at LGAs and communities to facilitate flow of information, reports and updates including staying abreast of current trends.

SCOPE OF ROLE:
Save the Children has been operational in Tanzania since 1986 providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered in support of Government of Tanzania priorities and policies both directly and through local partners. The Connect project will be directly implemented by Save the Children in Kongwa Dc in Phase One with the aim of increasing PPFP uptake and changing household and community attitudes towards child spacing, PPFP and the use of LARCs. The Project Officer will be vital in ensuring smooth implementation at the community level with all relevant community level actors.
