MCC does not implement its own program in Afghanistan, but works with other local partners. Learning Dari language in Kabul will be the priority for the first six months of the assignment.
The MCC Afghanistan Nutrition and Food Security Advisor is a three-year position. She or he will work closely with MCC Afghanistan’s partner, providing advice and training to the nutrition and food security work being carried out across the country. A significant part of the work includes planning, monitoring, and evaluation of projects. The position will require a lot of travel and initiative.
MCC Afghanistan’s partner has about 65 expatriates and 500 Afghan staff across seven provinces in the country. In 2013, the partner organization had 32 projects (within the sectors of health, education and development) with an annual budget of approximately $4,200,000. From April 2013 through March 2014, MCC Afghanistan had five expatriate service workers and one SALT participant. This position will be supervised by both the MCC Representative for Afghanistan and the partner organization’s Development Director.
