AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of the German Catholics for Development Cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS) we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Guatamala, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.
To support the remembrance work of the Monseñor Girardi Centre of the Human Rights Office of the Catholic Archdiocese of Guatemala (ODHAG), we are looking for an
Educator, museum education officer (m/f/d), Guatemala City, Guatemala
to start as soon as possible.
Your new role
More than 20 years after the signing of a peace agreement, the effects of decades of civil war are still omnipresent in Guatemala. Many of those responsible for crimes against humanity are still in decision-making positions. Civil society agents who are committed to dealing with the past, observing human rights and increasing social justice often work in an exposed position and face increasing political pressure.
In this environment, the Monseñor Girardi Memorial Centre of the Archdiocese of Guatemala is sending an important signal with its courageous work. On the one hand it documents the life and work of Bishop Girardi, and on the other it prepares documents about Guatemala’s violent past for further human rights and remembrance work and makes them accessible to a broad public. In this way, the centre supports a constructive culture of remembrance and contributes to social reconciliation.
Working with the partner organisation, you will develop new educational approaches and concepts that are specifically aimed at younger generations, encouraging them to deal with history in a responsible manner and to accept the responsibility that comes with it. Through your work at the Monseñor Girardi Centre you will contribute directly to peace-building and the strengthening of social justice in Guatemala.
Specifically, you will carry out the following tasks:
