Head of Program – South Sudan at Handicap International – Humanity & Inclusion

Un(e) Area Manager Bambari – RCA at Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion

Handicap International/Humanity & Inclusion (HI) is an independent and impartial international solidarity organization, which intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflicts and disasters. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, it acts and speaks out to meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. More info: www.hi.org

HI is committed to an employment policy in favour of persons with disabilities.


HI has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving the protection, quality of life, and promotion of rights of vulnerable individuals, including people with disabilities. HIs current portfolio adopts an integrated and multi-sectoral approach which includes interventions centred on MHPSS, Protection, Functional Rehabilitation and livelihoods with disability inclusion a cross-cutting theme across all programmes. In 2021, HI established a base in the greater Unity, which remains among the most conflict and disability affected states of the 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.
