Children in Crossfire recently secured funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to deliver an ambitious three-year project championing ECD policy and programming advocacy in partnership with the Tanzania ECD Network (TECDEN) and the Union of Tanzania Press Clubs (UTPC). The new project to be more popularly known as ‘Mtoto Kwanza!’ will provide lead support to the government of Tanzania and wider ECD stakeholder ecosystem to raise the profile of ECD policy and programming in Tanzania, including supporting the roll-out of the anticipated landmark National Multisectoral ECD Programme at national and sub-national levels. The project will support civil society engagement with national monitoring mechanisms as well as establish a network of local civil society organizations (CSOs) across all mainland regions of Tanzania to effectively engage regional and local government in ECD programming. Community engagement will be enhanced via a network of ECD champion journalists reporting on all ECD domains across all regions nationwide.
We are recruiting for key roles to lead successful implementation of this unique and exciting project:

The role will also take on a wider organizational remit to support implementation of Children in Crossfire’s Communications Strategy.
