 POSITION TITLE: WASH OFFICER

 REPORT DIRECTLY TO: GIKURIRO PROGRAM COORDINATOR

Faith Victory Association (FVA) in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) will be implementing USAID-funded Gikuriro program in Kayonza district. Gikuriro Program is implemented through a consortium of two International Agencies; Catholic Relief Services (CRS) who is the prime and SNV, the Netherlands Development Organization a sub-recipient. Gikuriro works through decentralized Government of Rwanda (GoR) systems and structures and local civil society organizations (LCSOs) in the eight targeted districts.

Gikuriro embodies CRS and SNV’s programmatic and operational approach to improving the nutritional status of women of reproductive age and children under five, especially in the first 1,000 days of life. Nutrition and Water Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH) are inextricably interlinked; poor sanitation and hygiene practices increase the risk of diseases that can contribute to malnutrition. Children with diarrhea eat less and are less able to absorb the nutrients from their food. Despite Rwanda’s achievements in development and economic growth, the country continues to face challenges in nutrition as well as WASH. Stunting is found in 38% of children less than five years old (DHS 2015), a condition which makes them more vulnerable to other health conditions.

It is with this background that, FVA would like to request qualified WASH Officer who will be based in KAYONZA District with the ability to perform for the following position to send their application requests.
