SI recruits 01 Program Manager INFRA (M/F) – MUEDA (1713193027)

Job Description:

Desired start date: 13/05/2023
Duration of the mission: 10 months
Location: Mueda, Mozambique


SOLIDARITES INTERNATIONAL (SI) is an international humanitarian aid association which, since more than 40 years, has been providing assistance to populations affected by armed conflicts and natural disasters by meeting their basic needs for food, water and shelter. Particularly committed to the fight against diseases linked to unsafe water, the leading cause of death in the world, SI’s interventions provide expertise in the field of access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene promotion, but also in the essential area of food security and livelihoods. Present in some twenty countries, the SI teams – 2500 people in total, made up of expatriates, national staff, permanent staff at HQ, and a few volunteers – intervene with professionalism and commitment while respecting cultural norms.


Solidarités International intervened in Mozambique in March 2019 for a few months following the passage of Cyclone Idai, which hit the Province of Sofala and the city of Beira hard. Operations were suspended after the emergency phase and the mission closed. The evolution of the situation in Cabo Delgado province, hit by several cyclones and severely affected by the violent actions of armed groups claiming to be IS, which caused the displacement of nearly 700 000 people, led to an assessment in May 2021 and to the reopening of the mission. The assessment carried out in the most affected district highlighted needs, particularly in the WASH sector, and the lack of emergency actors. The mission has opened in a complex security and administrative environment, where access is a major issue.

Solidarités International was one of the first INGO actors to respond to the growing crisis in Cabo Delgado, leading emergency response and distributions in hard-to-reach areas.

Solidarites International is working since 2022 on the improvement of a water network in Ntoli area, which should supply water to more than 120,000 persons. After preminilary studies, the project is in its procurement and implementation phase.


General objective:

The aim of the program is to rehabilitate Mueda’s drinking water network. It will ensure the supply of drinking water not only to the population of Mueda, but also to several IDP camps.
The camps are currently supplied in part by the drinking water network, but suffer from major irregularities linked to the state of the network and its management. To meet the population’s water needs, SI has set up a water supply via water trucking, and the rehabilitation of the network is part of a strategy to move away from water trucking.

The main challenges:

The network design has been validated by several specialists, and will shortly be presented to the network operator for validation. Some readaptations will be necessary to meet the constraints, and these will be made as the program progresses.
It will also be necessary to integrate the network manager in order to make him/her more responsible for the maintenance of infrastructures and works.
