Humanity and Inclusion -HI (the new name and re-branding of Handicap International since January 2018) was founded in France in 1982. In 2009, the HI Federation was established in Brussels. The membership of the Federation has since expanded to 8 countries, namely; France, Belgium, UK, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Canada. Hi vision asserts: “Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we, aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity”. HI is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. Currently, HI is present in at least 55 countries, with its humanitarian programs reaching at least 2 million people. In 1997, HI along with other partners was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its international campaigns to ban landmines sale and use.

HI has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving protection, quality of life, and the promotion of rights of vulnerable individuals, including people with physical disabilities. HI’s current operations are centred in POCs (protection of civilian sites) and IDP camps outside Juba city and in three greater states: Yei, Torit and Yambio in greater Central Equatoria state, greater Eastern Equatoria and greater Western Equatoria respectively, with the Country Office based in Juba city. During 2019, HI is planning to establish a base in the greater Unity, which remains the most conflict and disability affected region of the whole country. The operational context in South Sudan today is considered largely humanitarian/emergency while phasing in resilience programming. The ongoing peace initiatives if they succeed might result in huge population movements of returnees (both IDPs and refugees) across the country.
This position provides professional and technical support to Rehabilitation teams across at least 5 HI South Sudan projects.
