ABOUT RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT
We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.
We are living in a time of ‘peak youth’. Half the global population is under 30 and of these young people, 90% live in developing countries. We can’t end the world’s biggest challenges if the people closest to the problems are unheard and shut out. The world needs young people’s insight and leadership to solve its problems. Young people’s time is now.
Restless Development is run out of hubs in ten countries across Africa, Asia and in the UK and US, with a wider network of partners across the world. We have been working with young people since 1985 and our work is led by thousands of young people every year.
OUR APPROACH TO SAFEGUARDING
Restless Development considers the welfare and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults to be an organisational imperative with primacy over the success of programmes or strategic objectives. We recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and we expect all of our staff, volunteers and partners to ensure we protect the communities in which we operate from harm and abide by our Safeguarding Policy.
ABOUT THE ROLE
We are looking for a dynamic, committed and passionate individual to assist in the coordination and Implementation of Mabinti Tushike Hatamu Project at the capacity of Youth Officers through the Dar es Salaam, Ruvuma, Iringa Programme Offices.
We champion the engagement, position, and ultimately the influence of young people at every stage of development. Since 1993, we have been applying our experience to engage young people and young professionals at all levels of our organization to lead change. Our unique youth-led approach has been cited best practice and won awards from the Stars Foundation, World Bank, UNAIDS, and most recently the 2014 Resolve Award for Mabinti Tushike Hatamu.
