JOB OPPORTUNITY AT SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND- TANZANIA





DETAILS 

POSITION: PROGRAM ASSISTANT- MEDIA
EMPLOYER : SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND TANZANIA 
DUTY STATION: DAR ES SALAAM,  TANZANIA 


ABOUT SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND

We partner with people around the world to ignite shared solutions to destructive conflicts.
We work at all levels of society to build sustainable peace through three main avenues: Dialogue+, Media+, and Community+.

OUR MISSION: 
End violent conflict. It’s our purpose, our call to action.
Instead of tearing down an existing world, we focus on constructing a new one. We do this through a type of peacebuilding called conflict transformation. Meaning: we look to change the everyday interactions between groups of people in conflict, so they can work together to build up their community, choosing joint problem-solving over violence.
Our mission is to transform the way the world deals with conflict, away from adversarial approaches, toward cooperative solutions.

OUR VISION: 
Our ability to deal with conflict affects how we handle every issue humanity is facing. Whether global in nature, such as poverty, hunger or the environment, or closer to home, such as family or community relations, we face daily challenges to our abilities to deal with conflict constructively.
So, our vision is of a world where:
Differences stimulate social progress, rather than precipitate violence.
Respect for and cooperation with those we disagree with is considered the norm for individuals, communities, organizations, and nations.
