Job Description

 Hiwot Ethiopia was established in 1995. It has been working for the well being of children and youth in Ethiopia. It has been delivering a range of multi-year programs on health, education, child rights/projection, livelihood, gender equality and disability with a number of local and international partners. Hiwot Ethiopia, by the financial support of ESAP3 has been implementing “Enhancing Social Accountability for quality and Inclusive Public Service delivery” project in, Arada Sub city,Addis Ababa. 
SA is a concept that facilitates dialogue between citizens and service providers which should lead to more responsive and quality service delivery. Service providers and their supervisors and administrators within government are then held accountable for their performance. SA is used as a process and mechanism to inform and educate citizens on their rights, responsibilities and on minimum service standards. It thus contributes to good governance by engaging citizens to facilitate the SA process, ultimately leading to enhanced service delivery.    
Through a grants program, ESAP mobilizes SA implementing partners (IPs) to guide local institutions through a 5-step social accountability cycle. This may include training and coaching for selected community representatives, citizen groups, local government officials and other stakeholders on social accountability principles, service standards and selected social accountability tools.
