Inter Aide has been working in Malawi for more than 25 years and currently runs 9 programmes in rural areas in the field of community health, agriculture, access to water and maintenance of water points. For more than 15 years, the association has been developing water point maintenance services to enable rural populations to maintain their equipment (mainly wells and boreholes equipped with hand pumps). These actions were first carried out within Water-Hygiene-Sanitation projects, and then extended to a larger scale within the framework of specific maintenance projects.
These water point maintenance projects are based on three components:
In parallel, Inter Aide has gradually delegated part of its projects and their funding to the local NGO BASEDA, historical partner in Malawi (in terms of access to water but also in other areas). At present, the existing maintenance services cover 15 Districts (out of 28 in the country), divided into 4 projects:
The projects carried out by BASEDA are supervised by 2 Malawian Programme Managers (based in Zomba and Lilongwe), under the responsibility of the Director of the local NGO. Inter Aide South project is supervised by a couple of expatriate Programme Managers (based in Phalombe). For Inter Aide Centre project, a process is underway to transfer responsibilities from an expatriate Manager (based in Lilongwe) to a Malawian Manager (based in Dowa).
As part of an evolution of position, Inter Aide is currently looking for a Programme Director to ensure the coordination and overall supervision of water point maintenance activities in Malawi.
The Programme Director will be responsible for the technical coordination, overall supervision and representation of Inter Aide and BASEDA (Central and Southern Regions) water point maintenance projects.
Its main responsibilities will be as follows:
Technical coordination and transversal monitoring and evaluation (about 40% of working time):
Overall support and supervision of projects and the NGO BASEDA (about 40% of working time):
Representation/visibility (about 20% of working time):
The Programme Director will be under the supervision of the Area Manager based in France. He/she will have under his/her responsibility the local Manager of the Inter Aide Centre project, and will co-decide with the Director of the local NGO on the main decisions concerning BASEDA projects. He/she will work closely with the expatriate Managers of the Inter Aide South Project.
