Project Officer (Reducing the impact of Flood in Kirehe district) AT Plan International : ( Deadline : 30 October 2019 )

 

 

Date: 29-Oct-2019

 

Company: Plan International

 

The Organisation

 

 

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.

 

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

 

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

 

 

ROLE PURPOSE

 

Plan International Rwanda has secured an emergency funding from the START Network to support Kirehe District in strengthening its Disaster Preparedness while tackling the floods crisis in the District. The project is entitled “Reducing the impact of Flood in Kirehe district of Rwanda” and will be implemented within 45 days from 25th October 2019.

 

As per the recent updates and forecast, there are gaps within Shelter, NFI, WASH sectors, as well as DRR awareness responses that are being implemented by the Government of Rwanda. Plan International Rwanda has consulted the line departments and discussed the potential impact of potential flooding on various HHs in Kihene. This project will complement and contribute to on-going interventions led by the District Government. Plan International Rwanda will be responding to identified needs through shelter and NFI and WASH interventions, as well as DRR activities.

 

This project aims at supporting target communities to be able to prepare for the worst situation and to know how to react and mitigate similar loss as previous years when the rains where not predicted as heavy as this year (2019). The success of the project is to minimise the loss and damage based on the forecast released by the government. The community will also benefit through different coordinated efforts. Their houses and crops won’t be affected due to water channel deviation planned actions. In addition, the community will be more aware on how to prevent such disaster and what to do in case it strikes in future following planned awareness raising actions.

 

This project is line with Plan International Country Strategy 2020-2024 and interventions are under Disaster Risk Management component.

 

The project intends to reach an estimate of 84,000 most vulnerable disaster-prone beneficiaries especially women and children in Kihene district (Nasho, Kirehe, Mushikiri, Nyamugari, Kigarama, Kigina, Musaza sectors).
