Salary: 892’500 IQD
Mercy Hands is implementing a project to promote peaceful coexistence and wellbeing for returnees and host communities in conflict-affected districts and sub-districts of Ninewa through psychosocial resilience, social cohesion, and livelihood restoration.
The first project’s pillar is based on the principle that the safety and wellbeing of returnees and host communities’ youth and adolescents in Ninewa is crucial to mitigate protection risks and avoid negative coping behaviors. As the second project’s pillar, once youth have positive coping skills, they are able to participate to the civic life and promote social cohesion. Also, the third project’s pillar is linked to the first pillar. The coping skills obtained through the psychosocial support activities will also allow returnees and host communities youth to absorb new skills for starting livelihood activities. Therefore, the project will focus on connecting older youth to increased livelihood opportunities. All those activities will be delivered in AYFSs (Adolescents and Youth Friendly Spaces).
Position Summary: Drive the staff as necessary throughout Sinjar district as well as occasionally to Mosul.
