Catholic Relief Services is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS works to save, protect, and transform lives in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.
Extension systems are becoming increasingly pluralistic, resulting in a variety of actors providing services to farmers. Improved coordination is a recognized need to improve the coverage of extension workers to reach all farmers. Pluralism is constrained by accurate basic data on who is doing what, where, and with whom. To assist Agricultural Extension Workers to collect such type of data, the University of Illinois developed a Smartphone Application called the Extension Helper App and is seeking services of an eligible candidate to support rolling out the Application in collaboration with DAES in three districts: Balaka, Dedza and Lilongwe.
You will assist the project implementation by working directly with local partners and extension workers, coordinating the use of Extension Helper APP and Smart video projectors in support of Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) work to serve the poor and vulnerable. Your service and community relations skills ensure that the local partners and communities feed into and benefit from the project that consistently applies best practices and continuously works towards improving its impact.
