About Community Partnerships for Respectful Care (CPRC):

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the New
Partnerships Initiative (NPI) has awarded CPRC to the Americares
Foundation Inc. NPI is shifting the focus of USAID’s traditional
partners to mentoring, capacity-building, and technical oversight, by
using umbrella mechanisms and sub-awards strategically to enable new and
underutilized local partners to lead development in their own
communities and advance the Journey to Self-Reliance. USAID seeks to
expand its network of partnerships with local organizations because they
can mobilize quickly and take advantage of long-standing grassroots
relationships to bring needed interventions directly to people at risk.



Americares Community Partnerships for Respectful Care (CPRC) project is
a five-year, $25 million effort under NPI to reduce mortality and
morbidity among mothers and their children through improved
community-based health care. Americares will work with Christian
Connections for International Health (CCIH) and its local affiliates in
the United Republic of Tanzania (Christian Social Services
Commission-CSSC) and the Republic of Liberia to leverage the expertise
and reach of local and locally established organizations, by building
their institutional capacity. This new partnership will work closely
with Tanzanian and Liberian communities and faith-based networks to
improve access to, and demand for, high-quality, community-based health
care for mothers, newborns, and children; voluntary family planning;
nutrition; and respectful maternity care

Project Administrative Officer will work under the direct supervision
of the Tanzania CPRC Project Director to perform her/his assignments
within the CPRC project teams. S/He will be the main point of contact to
plan and work on CPRC project administrative matters. S/He is expected
to provide consistent and timely support to CPRC team in Tanzania to
ensure compliance with USAID rules and regulations and Americares
policies and procedures, especially in ensuring timely project Annual
