IMA is looking for a Chief of Party (COP) to manage and implement the USAID funded Indoensa Bersama project. This project will support community-based efforts to prevent and respond to GBV in Eastern Indonesia, especially in Papua and West Papua. This effort will serve as the primary entry point for supporting partners to advocate for reduced acceptance of gender inequality and for increased government accountability for promotion and protection of citizen rights and the provision of basic services, especially services for survivors of violence. As violence against women constitutes the largest and most visible component of GBV, the Bersama project will focus primarily on VAW while leaving the door open to addressing other aspects of GBV.
