Job Opportunity at Lyra In Africa- Tanzania, June 2020- Project Officer


Position: Project Officer 
Employer: Lyra In Africa- Tanzania
Location: Iringa region
Deadline: Sunday 7th June 2020. 

About Lyra in Africa- Tanzania
Lyra works in the Iringa Region of Tanzania. Situated in East Africa, Tanzania's economy is based largely on agriculture. It has the lowest rate of high school enrolment in Africa. Tanzania is a stable country with annual economic growth of over 6% since 2000. But there is a disconnect between urban and rural economies. National growth has not reduced poverty in rural areas where subsistence farming is the main activity. Many rural families are stuck in a poverty trap.

We work to adress these problems in two ways:
▪︎ Investing in girls' education.
Educating girls = Smaller, healthier, better educated, and more prosperous families
▪︎ Investing in community enterprise, particularly women. So that families can access training and credit for higher income initiatives.
