About Strengthening Advocacy and Civic Engagement
Strengthening Advocacy and Civic Engagement is a five year, $19.2 million project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), implemented through a contract with Chemonics International. Its objective is to strengthen civil society's ability to influence the development and implementation of key democratic reforms at the national, state, and local levels. The project will support increased engagement and efficacy of civil society to be able to influence public institutions whose function it is to serve citizens' interests. We explicitly aim to engage marginalized populations, such as women, youth, and the disabled in the process and emphasize the importance of leadership and innovation. The project has four components strengthening capacity of civil society; supporting greater engagement and partnership; strengthening public awareness and engagement, and supporting civil society organizations (CSOs) and business memberships organizations (BMOs) in the Niger Delta to advocate for inclusive economic growth (with support from PIN D). The project seeks to recruit the following key positions to support its work. All staff as expected at all times to adhere to and act according to the Chemonics Professional Code of Ethics ("Living Our Values") and will make the principles of the Code a part of the Project's culture and standard operating procedures.
