Organization: International Rescue Committee
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 27 Apr 2018

Background

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is an international NGO that responds to humanitarian crises and helps people to survive, recover, and rebuild their lives. The IRC has been working in Ethiopia for over 17 years implementing emergency and resilience programming in the areas of WASH, education, livelihoods, reproductive health, women and girls programming, and child and youth protection and development.

IRC Ethiopia is part of the Creative Associates-led and USAID-funded READ II program, which launched in early 2018.
