The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
In emergencies, WFP gets food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help communities rebuild their lives. On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. The organization has the global footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide access to nutritious food and contribute to lasting solutions, especially in many of the world’s most remote and fragile areas.
The Regional Bureau in Nairobi (RBN) provides strategic guidance, policy/technical support and direction to WFP operations and activities in nine countries: Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda
The WFP is decentralizing more responsibilities from the central Headquarters to the Regional Bureau; to this end, it is developing further systems and policies for staff to use in order to carry out their duties more efficiently and effectively. Currently, staff working in the Administration units have, on average, at least 9 different online systems to work with as well as numerous portals to obtain relevant information from.
The Regional Bureau has the responsibility to supply the administration services to all the staff in the office, and to give oversight to the 9 Country Offices under of the East and Central Africa Region. What is required is to have a better understanding on the systems that the Administration staff need to use; what portals are available to get information from; and what reports we will need to obtain on a monthly basis from the Country Offices.
