IMC Worldwide is looking for a Team Leader for an upcoming donor-funded project to strengthen access to justice and prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Malawi.

IMC Worldwide is tracking an opportunity for an upcoming donor-funded project to strengthen access to justice and prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Malawi. 

The programme aims to strengthen the capacities of communities and institutions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) and to improve the accessibility, responsiveness and accountability of the justice system for women and girls living with violence.

During the second phase, the interventions that have been identified as most successful will be rolled out further across Malawi.
