Champion of Change Coordinator


Plan International Rwanda has secured funding from Plan International Belgium to build the critical assets of adolescent refugee girls in Rwanda. In this regard, Plan is implementing a project called “Empowering Girls for Equality” in Gihembe and Nyabiheke refugee camps. It is an opportunity to train refugee men/boys to become champions of change towards gender equality so that adolescent refugee girls enjoy their rights through the engagement of men and boys in positive masculinity and support other project activities which lead to the empowerment of adolescent girls in both refugee camps.

The project aims to directly impact at least 878 adolescent girls aged 10-17 and 585 adolescent boys aged 10-17 in both camps. Through direct content delivery from trained 135 mentors (81 female –girl’s mentors and 54 male-boys mentors) aged 18-40. Through safe spaces for girls in the camps, over 5,000 girls aged 5-17 will be reached. Through campaigns and positive masculinity programming, over 4,800 boys aged 5-17 will be indirectly reached.

Dimensions of the Role

Plan International Rwanda is looking for a good Champion of Change Coordinator who has a combined profile of knowledge on gender equality and solid experience working with young people in order to influence attitudes and behavioral changes. S/he should also enjoy working and discussing Gender Equality and Men Engagement topics with youths especially boys. S/he needs to be comfortable with her/his own views and self-reflective, foster dialogue and be comfortable responding to questions about her/his own experiences in a non-directive manner.

Champion of Change module was developed by Plan International to work with youth on gender equality, working with boys and girls to act as champions and peer educators. This programme encompasses capacity building of male youth as peer educators by developing a real understanding of their cultural, social and religious contexts and how these impact them. This initiative engages and shifts the agenda from boys and men as one of the sources of gender inequality to boys and men as part of the solution to transform discriminatory gender norms and practices. Girls and boys may come together to discuss their changing views on gender and social transformation and work together to find solutions for their own communities guided by a skillful facilitator.

Are You Still Unemployed….? These Methods will give you a 99% Chance of getting Employed


Applying to jobs you’re not qualified for (which 50% of job seekers reportedly do!) is counter-productive to your job search. Competition is too fierce. Even qualified applicants aren’t getting callbacks.

So, stop applying to so many jobs and allocate time each week to becoming more hire able.

Are You Still Unemployed


Here’s how…

1. Volunteer

Volunteering can increase your chances of being hired if you’re strategic about it. Unemployed teacher? Help out with after school programs or volunteer to be a coach’s assistant. Web designer? Find a local non-profit in desperate need of a re-design and offer your services for free. By volunteering somewhere relevant, you’ll keep your skills fresh while enhancing your resume.

2. Keep Your Skills Current

If you lack a skill commonly required for jobs you’re seeking, spend time each day building that skill. Take advantage of numerous free resources online, including tutorials, e-books, and how-to videos. If you’d rather have more of a class setup, then look for free or affordable adult education classes in your area. 

Alternatively, if you already possess the necessary skills but haven’t been practicing, then do so. Skill atrophy is a huge concern for hiring managers, so practice and get yourself ready for pre-employment skills tests.

3. Network

There are two parts to networking: reconnecting with your old contacts and forming new ones. Depending on where you are in your career, reconnecting might mean contacting professors, college advisers, and internship supervisors, or it might mean getting in touch with old colleagues, bosses, and business acquaintances.

Find them, e-mail them, call them. Ask them to coffee. Ask how they are (networking is social, after all) and let them know the specifics of your job search (industry, location, etc.). See if they know of anything or anyone.

Most importantly, follow up!

At a temporary dead-end with your current contacts? Make new ones. Go to networking events sponsored by your university, industry, city, and so on. And look beyond traditional networking events. 

Consider going to lectures, neighborhood council meetings, even community bar crawls (go easy on the sauce). Each of these provides an opportunity to meet people with similar interests, and you can have fun in the process.

Again, follow up!

4. Freelance

Some job seekers are opposed to anything that’s not a full-time job. If this sounds like you, it’s time to change your mindset. Freelancing is a great way to boost your skills, resume, portfolio, professional network, income, and confidence. Search for freelance openings here.


5. Build An Online Presence

Get found online. Start a blog, spruce up your social network profiles, create an online portfolio to showcase your work. Find companies you’re interested in working for, subscribe to their blogs, and follow them on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Find decision-makers at those companies and follow them as well. Learn what they’re talking about, do a little research, and then engage with them online. Impress them with your interest and insights.


Worst case scenario  

— you’ll learn what’s important to them and use this information to customize your application when a job opens up.

Better case scenario 

— you’ll establish a rapport with someone who will recommend you for a position and/or tell you about unpublished openings.

Best case scenario 

— you’ll impress someone so much over time that they’ll create a job for you or bring you in for an exploratory interview.

How to craft an Eye Catching Cover Letter


How to craft an Eye Catching Cover Letter


In a job market that’s more competitive than ever, it’s critical that your cover letter stand out.

With the advent of online job postings, you’re competing with a more global and wide-ranging group of people, so consider the content of your cover letter carefully.

And never submit a resume without one—that’s a great way to be dismissed by a recruiter for lack of effort.




Here are some pointers on how to craft the perfect cover letter:


1. Use details to show how your experience is relevant

Make points in your cover letter that are relevant to the job you’re applying for.

Is it a marketing job? Specify the roles you’ve played and tasks you’ve undertaken that make you a qualified candidate.

If your cover letter looks like a template, the recruiter will likely feel you aren’t making an effort, and the letter probably won’t speak to why you’d be a great fit for the job you’re applying to.


2. Give it personality

Avoid sounding monotonous or boring in your cover letter; recruiters will assume you’re like that in person, too.

Be excited about the position (but avoid using exclamation points), and be inspired by the work you would do for the company.


3. Be confident

Sign the letter “I look forward to hearing from you” rather than “I hope to hear from you and that you think I am qualified for the role.

” Assume you will hear from the company in your tone—otherwise they will sense your lack of confidence and question your qualifications.


4. Use proper spelling and grammar


The best way to turn off a recruiter is to use improper grammar or spelling.

This says that you don’t have an eye for detail, that you don’t necessarily truly care to work at the company and that you’ll make the same kinds of mistakes when you come on board.

No one wants internal or client communications to be filled with errors; it’s bad business. 

5. Allude to your network as it pertains to the job

Networking is a critical part of your job search today.

If you’ve met someone within the company, reference that person and why they inspired you to apply.

It helps even more if the person you’re submitting your resume to is someone you’ve met—tell them why you enjoyed meeting them and why you’d like to work with them. (Appealing to their ego doesn’t hurt!)

You can network your way into the job without looking desperate.


6. Consider length


It’s critical that your cover letter not be too long.

Keep it concise and to the point.

Recruiters read so many cover letters in a day they might only skim the really long ones.

You want to be heard, so keep that cover letter tight.

Before sending the letter, read it over and put yourself in the recruiter’s shoes.

In a sea of competitive cover letters, is this a cover letter you’d be inspired to respond to?
