Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

UN Women Mozambique focuses its interventions on women’s economic empowerment, participation and democratic governance, combating violence against women, among others. In this context, it puts a strong focus on young women’s economic empowerment as part of the strategy to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights. Additionally, it favours girls and young women in the development of high-profit initiatives and labour market opportunities at district and provincial levels.

Evidence show the positive effect of girls and young women’s economic empowerment on their agency, and consequently on their health, uptake of health care services, number of children, health of their children etc. Based on the fact that young women’s capacity to bring about economic change for themselves is increasingly viewed as the most important contributing factor to achieving equality between women and men, Rapariga Biz anticipates that a stronger emphasis on providing economic opportunities for the target group will assist in addressing the inequalities present in the geographic areas fueling the vulnerabilities and marginalization of girls and young women.

Under the overall guidance and direction of the Programme Officer (supervisor), the Programme Assistant will work closely with the programme and operations team, Provincial Government, UN Agencies involved in the Rapariga BIZ (e.g. UNFPA, UNICEF and UNESCO) and civil society to ensure the technical direction and implementation of the project are maintained and key outputs are achieved in a cost effective and timely manner.

The Programme Assistant works with and provides support to the members of the Programme Team in the development and implementation of the Rapariga Biz result on: “Girls and Young Women in safe Spaces in Zambézia Province are economically empowered.” Drawing on the lessons learned from on-going efforts in Nampula to ensure girls and young women, as well as mentors are offered economic empowerment opportunities, UN Women seeks to ensure that tailor-made activities are implemented for the local context in Zambézia. The Programme Assistant will provide support and assistance to the team to ensure effective programme implementation in line with UN Women rules and regulations and in coordination with involved agencies.

Under the guidance and supervision of the Programme Officer, the Programme Assistant supports the project operations by performing a variety of standard administrative processes ensuring high quality and accuracy of work. The Programme Assistant promotes a client, quality and results-oriented approach. The Programme Assistant works in close collaboration with the Rapariga Biz project staff and the Operations team to ensure consistent service delivery including UN Women Country and Regional Offices.
