The Synod of Livingstonia Development Department (SOLDEV) is the development arm of the Church of Central African Presbyterian of the Synod of Livingstonia that was established in 1993. The department is mandated by the Synod to facilitate the implementation of community based sustainable projects in Food and Nutrition Security; Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH); Humanitarian Emergency Response, Climate Change and Environmental Management while mainstreaming disaster risk
reduction, HIV & AIDS, gender as cross cutting issues. The Development Department envisages a society of self-reliant communities committed to attaining improved sustainable livelihoods and development through collaboration with the Church and development partners in God’s love.
SOLDEV has secured funding from European Union through Christian Aid for implementation of Social Support for Resilience Programme: Linking Communities under Social Protection to Resilience (SoSuRe – Mlumikizi) in Mzimba North and South for a period of three years. The overall objective of the programme is to contribute to reduction of poverty through enhancing resilience among the most vulnerable households in Malawi in the districts of Mzimba North and South, Zomba and Mulanje. For the Christian Aid led consortium, the programme is targeting the current 14,907 SCTP beneficiaries in Mzimba District, most of whom are female headed households, and an expected additional 19,495 SCTP beneficiaries in the second year of the project.
The Development Department is therefore inviting applications from suitably qualified and experienced personnel for the positions of Project Coordinator, Project Officers, Assistant Project Accountant, Administrative Assistant and driver that are tenable within the project covering Mzimba District.
The Project Coordinator and other Officers will become part of a project team that will be delivering a resilient project targeting Social Cash transfer beneficiaries in Mzimba District. The Action is designed to go beyond scattered small scale direct interventions and focus on sustainable and integrated effective resilience building geared towards breaking the cycle of food and nutrition insecurity through tailored packages.
