The mission of Global Communities (formerly CHF International) is to create long-lasting, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable people across the globe.
This is an open position, not a position on a proposal.
Global Communities is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) for the 60M USAID-funded Resiliency in Northern Ghana (RING) program. This five year contract is scheduled for completion in 2019.

Project activities will focus on increasing consumption of diverse quality foods, especially among women and children; improving behaviors related to nutrition and hygiene of women and young children; and strengthening the capacity of local support networks (with a particular focus on Regional Coordinating Councils and District Assembly staff and systems) to address the needs of vulnerable households.
The Chief of Party provides overall leadership and technical direction for the project; oversee planning, implementation and management of the project; serve as key liaison with the donor, the Government of Ghana and implementing partners; and ensure proper reporting, financial management and compliance.
