Jobs in Tanzania 2021: New Job Vacancies at Community Concern of Orphans and Development Association (COCODA), 2021
Concern of Orphans and Development Association (COCODA) is a
non-governmental organization established in 2000. COCODA’s
establishment as its name suggests, resulted from intensifying concern
among community members in Njombe over the surging number of orphans,
mainly as a consequence to swelling amount of people infected by HIV and
dying from AIDS, majority being adults leaving behind young children
without parents. This trend had a negative impact on social and economic
development. Hence COCODA envisioned to offer effective response to the
situation through providing education to local community on HIV/ AIDS,
supporting orphans and most vulnerable children, providing vocational
skills to youth and establishment of small scale income generating
groups for community sustainable economy.
Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) is a global project
funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)
and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) which is
dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control. It is led
by FHI 360 as prime and has a five-year period of performance from April
15, 2019 to April 14, 2024.
EpiC provides strategic
technical assistance (TA) and direct service delivery to break through
barriers to 95-95-95 and improve HIV case-finding, prevention and
linkage to treatment among key and priority populations (PP). In Njombe
region the project is implemented by COCODA in 6 councils (Njombe TC,
Njombe DC, Makambako TC, Wanging’ombe DC, Ludewa DC and Makete DC) to
