Restless Development is the global leader in youth-led development. In August 2016, Restless Development launched a new 15-year vision underpinned by a 5-year strategy. This marks an exciting turning point in the history of the agency which firmly establishes us as a global leader on youth-led development, as well as a champion of a paradigm shift in the international development sector which puts young people at the heart and unleashes their power to achieve real change.
Restless Development Uganda has pioneered youth research, livelihoods programming, and the integration of the Restless Development model. The Uganda team will lead the agency’s research work, by strengthening and incubating expertise, developing and refining approaches and models, and by building and maintaining links with partners. It will build on the experience and practice in Uganda on youth-led research, ranging from grassroots youth led research as part of broader programming and advocacy, through to specific youth research projects working to deliver new longer-term strategic funding, with an immediate focus on addressing donor drop-off in the Karamoja region. Funding success in recent years has come mainly from institutional funders and this role will play a critical role in driving growth in this area focusing on high quality earnings for sustainability of our agency. You and your team will focus on bilateral and multilateral donors, donor governments, partner NGOs, corporates and trusts and foundations.
