ZOA is looking for a Programme Manager in Afghanistan
ZOA’s Programme in Afghanistan
ZOA has been working in Afghanistan since 2000. The situation in Afghanistan is constantly changing. Ongoing insecurity limits access to some of the project locations and makes it difficult to anticipate the needs. In 2018, thousands of people became displaced due to fighting and natural disasters. With the more than 600,000 people that returned from neighboring countries during the last two years these numbers put pressure on the hospitality of the host population and the capacity of basic services. ZOA is currently implements humanitarian and recovery activities in Kabul, Nangarhar, Zabul, Uruzgan, Sar-e-Pul and Jawzjan provinces.
ZOA supports communities with construction and rehabilitation of water systems. We built new classrooms for schools, combined with latrines and water wells. In two urban areas, we have been supporting some 150 Self Help Groups for women. In 2018, Afghanistan suffered from a severe drought. ZOA assisted affected families with cash-for-food distribution. At the same time, we are training farmers in techniques to increase the wheat production.
The Programme Manager (PGM) is responsible for the development and realisation of project and programmatic goals for the programme in Afghanistan within the organisational setting determined by internal and external preconditions in Afghanistan.
