The consultant will create an effective, culturally appropriate training focusing on concepts of a modern library, which includes that libraries: help users access information and promote new engagement with knowledge and information; are community centers reflecting the needs and diversity of the communities they serve; help shape the lives of the community members they serve. The consultant must conduct focus groups with experts in Moldova and at IREX to further define the scope and content of the training. The training packet will be complete with ToT and all materials (listed below). The consultant will pilot the training in Chisinau with librarians and Novateca participants, then adapt the training based on feedback. A total of amount available for the consultant's fees and expenses is dependent upon proposed activities. The project will be managed by the Program Director from within the Novateca program at IREX/Moldova. The training should be written in English, but will ultimately be delivered in both Romanian and Russian. About IREX: IREX is an international nonprofit organization providing leadership and innovative programs to improve the quality of education, strengthen independent media, and foster pluralistic civil society development. Founded in 1968, IREX has an annual portfolio of $60 million and a staff of 500 professionals worldwide. IREX and its partner IREX Europe deliver cross- cutting programs and consulting expertise in more than 100 countries. Summary of the Novateca Program: The Novateca program is administered by IREX in the Republic of Moldova. The program is designed to gain an in-depth understanding of the strengths and opportunities for providing wide scale public access to the internet through the existing public library network. This will occur through networking with a wide range of stakeholders, providing training to librarians, and piloting public access to the internet in a number of libraries. Novateca selected 68 libraries to participate in the pilot network in 2013. The program engaged more than 200 librarians in trainings over the course of the year. More information on the Novateca pilot program can be found at www.novateca.md. ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: The training on modern library services will eventually be part of a series of three trainings for Moldovan librarians. Two trainings currently offered by Novateca are: "IT and Computer Management" and "New Library Services." The requested training course will serve as a precursor to these trainings, to better familiarize librarians with modern library concepts before they step into more technical trainings. Novateca is requesting a proposal for the development of (up to) a 3-day training covering key modern library concepts, identified by the consultant and with support of Novateca and other Moldovan partners. Audience: Librarians in Moldova. General Theme: The workshop should focus on the concept of a modern library, including the following overall themes on modern libraries and how they: help users access information and promote new engagement with knowledge and information; are community centers reflecting the needs and diversity of the communities they serve; help shape the lives of the community members they serve. The training will focus on the philosophy of a "modern library", but this concept needs to be constructed with input from Novateca and key library leaders in Moldova. The training should bring in globally recognized concepts, while at the same time be applicable to the Moldovan environment.

SENIOR DEVELOPMENT OUTREACH AND COMMUNICATIONS (DOC) SPECIALIST
ACCRA, GHANA

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted through CAMRIS International partnered with IAP World Services Inc., (IAPWS), to recruit and hire qualified individuals for a Senior Development Outreach and Communications (DOC) Specialist in Ghana. A. BACKGROUND: The United States Agency for International Development Mission to Ghana (USAID/Ghana) requires an experienced Development Outreach and Communications (DOC) Specialist to provide senior-level technical expertise to the development and implementation of a communication strategy designed to educate the domestic population on the work USAID/Ghana is performing to benefit the people of Ghana. As a stable and democratic partner in the turbulent West Africa region, Ghana is a key ally of the United States. Because it continues to serve as a model and catalyst for good governance and development, Ghana is a focus country for Feed the Future and Global Health Initiatives (including the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the President's Malaria Initiative). Ghana is also a focus country for other high profile Administration priorities including but not limited to: the G8 Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition; USAID Forward, particularly implementation and procurement reform; Performance Management; Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene; Education; and Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance. Ghana is also one of only four countries participating in the Partnership for Growth, which puts into practice the principles of the first-ever Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development by using a whole of government approach to address the key binding constraints to Ghana's sustainable economic growth. Ghana's strong commitment to democracy and good governance has led to a growth in USAID funding from $41 million in 2007 to $171 million in 2012, representing an increase of 310%, and making the USG the largest bilateral donor in Ghana. Under its recently approved five- year, $858 million Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS), USAID/Ghana's targeted cooperation will help accelerate and sustain Ghana's transition toward middle income status through focused support to democratic governance, sustainable, broadly shared economic growth, equitable improvements in Ghanaians' health status, and improved reading performance in primary school. To implement this high profile, diverse, and complex program, USAID/Ghana has a current staff of 66. There are two main purposes for this Senior DOC Specialist position: (1) to apply strategic planning to the promotion and education of the Ghanaian population on how a partnership with United States (via USAID/ Ghana programs and activities) is providing better health and education for their families, increasing their economy's competitiveness, expanding economic opportunities to more Ghanaians, and strengthening democratic institutions; and (2) to assure the Government of Ghana at its highest levels of the US commitment to educate and promote a partnership of development at all levels.

SAFE PASSAGE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
GUATEMALA

Safe Passage, a 501(C)3 non-profit development-focused organization, is seeking an exceptional Executive Director. Known in Guatemala as Camino Seguro (and registered as a non-profit in Guatemala), Safe Passage's mission is to empower the poorest at-risk children and families who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community by creating opportunity and fostering dignity through the power of education. Safe Passage is a secular, non-political organization. The Executive Director will be based in Guatemala, but travel frequently to raise funds abroad. Fluency in Spanish and English are essential. He or she will lead the organization in carrying out a strategic vision which includes building and operating model schools at the preprimary, primary, and middle school levels while continuing a full range of educational programs to the community. For information about Safe Passage, please visit www.safepassage.org. The Organization: In 1997, early childhood specialist Hanley Denning went to Guatemala to learn Spanish. When she visited the impoverished community adjacent to the Guatemala City garbage dump, it changed her life and ultimately the lives of many families in this socially and economically marginalized community. Hanley sold her computer and car and began raising funds to provide school fees, tutoring, nutrition and critically needed care to children contending with extreme poverty, neglect and abuse. Hanley and her supporters built a safe and welcoming building that became the Educational Reinforcement Center. Within a few years, Safe Passage, with the help of staff, community members, volunteers, and international supporters, built an Early Childhood Education Center on reclaimed dump land, and created an adult literacy program for the parents of the students in the program. In 2007 Hanley was killed in a tragic car accident in Guatemala. Barbara Nijhuis, a Dutch citizen, served as Executive Director for three years, building organizational capacity and strengthening programs. In January 2011, Richard Schmaltz became the third ED, drawing on lengthy experience as a turn-around school principal in Canada and a long-time commitment and involvement with Safe Passage. Recognizing the inadequacy of most Guatemalan public schools, Richard has led the organization to a new strategic vision; Safe Passage will build and operate Camino Seguro schools at the pre-primary, primary, and middle school levels. This change in the program, from reinforcement to full-day enriched program has already commenced under a 5-year implementation program. In 2013, Safe Passage serves over 550 children and their families with an integrated program that incorporates healthy living, strong academics, life skills, creativity, and fun. Staff- Safe Passage has about 100 dedicated staff in Guatemala and a five-person Development and Outreach office in Yarmouth, Maine (Hanley Denning's home town). At any one time there are between 20 and 40 short-term (5-weeks +) or long-term (6 months +) volunteers from several countries working in Guatemala with the program. Each year, over 20 service teams spend a week with Safe Passage, and hundreds of Guatemalan and international visitors annually visit the program. Board- The 17-member Board of Directors has North American and Guatemalan members. Funding- Safe Passage has an annual budget of about $2 million, contributed primarily by over 3,500 individual donors through annual giving and a child sponsorship program, with and additional support from corporations and foundations. Programs: The children enrolled in Safe Passage attend Guatemalan schools (typically just a half-day) with financial support to cover costs of enrollment, school supplies and uniforms. In addition Safe Passage programs include: The Early Childhood Education Program, including the newly registered Escuelita Hanley Denning for pre-school age children- Enhances the health and school readiness of children between two and six years old while their parents work. The Hanley Denning Primary School- Started in 2013 with one first-grade class, the school will add one to two more years of formal schooling in each of the next 2-3 academic years.
