Interested in getting hands-on training, research & project management experience in development programs?
Do you have interest in international reproductive health? Then you might be who we are looking for.
WoMena is a young non-governmental organisation passionate about addressing social issues in low-income settings related to gender, reproductive health and menstrual hygiene management. We have noted that many effective solutions never get implemented due to research-policy gaps and disconnections between the decision makers and the people most in need. To address this, we are working on promoting the use of evidence-based, effective reproductive health technologies and solutions through research, advocacy and project implementation and are currently running research and projects related to menstrual cups in Uganda and Kenya. We are a Danish founded organization with an office set up in Kampala, Uganda. Our team consist of over 60 men and women working on a voluntary basis from more than 15 different nationalities based all over the world: Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Mozambique, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, and Denmark.
We are currently looking for 2-3 interns/volunteers to support the implementation and evaluation of menstrual cup research & projects in Kenya/Uganda. The main tasks will involve research, project management, training and advocacy. The volunteer(s) will also be involved in community outreaches conducted in collaboration with our partner organisation Public Health Ambassadors Uganda. The interns/volunteers will receive support from the WoMena team and will generally work in teams, but will have a high level of responsibility in terms of decision-making and making things happen on the ground. WoMena is therefore looking for people who take a proactive approach to finding solutions and are able and willing to work independently.
- An opportunity to get hands-on experience with training, project management, research and evaluation.
- High level of responsibility and influence on the above.
- Experience collaborating with local partner organizations and international cooperation.
- International network.
What we expect from you:
- Graduate student or graduate volunteer with relevant academic background e.g. public health, international relations, development studies, social science, or medicine.
- Experience with implementation of (development) projects, project management and/or research.
- That you are proactive and good at working independently, result- and solution-oriented, thrive on working in teams and you have good English communication skills.
- 3-6 months internship with field work in Uganda within the months of August 2016–January 2017
- Interns are expected to cover their travel and living expenses, while WoMena will cover all project-related expenses.
Kindly send your motivation letter and CV in English to [email protected] by 12 June 2016.
We look forward to receiving your application!
