Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in 62 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.
HI is engaged in an employment policy in favour of disabled workers.

JOB CONTEXT :
HI has been present continuously in the Mekong region since the 80’s with permanent presence in Cambodia (1985), Viet Nam (1992) and Laos (1996).
Discussions on the regionalization of the three countries have been ongoing since 2016 and have delayed the development of country level strategies.
In Viet Nam, last strategy was to phase out and leave the country by 2016. However, this plan was cancelled in 2015 when USAID approached the programme, offering to implement an ambitious multi-year project to support the Ministry of Health in providing quality rehabilitation services. Initial contract with USAID was running from 2015 to 2020 and has been subsequently extended until 2023. To date, and since 2017, this project is HI only intervention in Viet Nam – a strategic choice the programme would like to question under the present strategic process.
In Cambodia, 2013-2017 strategy was organized around three pillars: Disability prevention (Mine Action, Road safety), Access to services (Rehabilitation and MCH), Economic and social inclusion (Livelihood, Inclusive development and Inclusive education). Despite commendable successes in most sectors (and most notably the development of early screening tool and guideline endorsed by MoH, the TIGA livelihood project, and an Inclusive Education model) the programme faced a sharp decrease in international funding over the period and in-country activities are now reduced to a single project around Kampong Cham rehabilitation center.
In Laos, the 2012-2016 Strategy was based on 3 axes: Impairment prevention, access and support to services and promotion of people with disabilities rights and equity. During the years 2017 and 2018, the Program had to face the withdrawal of its main donor but has been able to secure new donors. Since 2017, the programme succeeded in developing the National Rehabilitation Strategy, the National Disability Policy and had a continuing focus on the CCM advocacy. The programme focused on addressing community needs thanks to the current CAMA (Comprehensive Approach to Mine Action) and CBID (Community Based Inclusive Development) strategy mainly implemented in Houaphan and Savannakhet provinces.
