Solidarités International

Job Description:

Posted on: 30/12/22

Desired start date: 01/02/2023
Duration of the mission: 12 months
Location: Pemba – Mozambique


  1. Mission: size, bases, budget, number of expatriates and national staffs.

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 800 000 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 is opening in a complex security and administrative environment, where access will be a major issue.

Solidarites 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. SI has completed its opening phase, and is massively scaling up in 2022. A new field base is planned for the first half of 2022, and multiple new projects are opening including a 5 M USD BHA project.
