Program Manager – UKRAINE

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: HI is committed to an employment policy in favour of persons with disabilities. JOB CONTEXT: Following a first step dedicated to assessment both in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries HI is now developing a large-scale inclusive, immediate and multi-sectoral humanitarian response to address the most acute needs of vulnerable conflict-affected populations in Ukraine and in Moldova in the frame of a 2-countries program. HI has designed a multi-sectorial intervention. Health In response to the significant health needs exacerbated by damages to health infrastructures, restrictions of movement as a result of ongoing hostilities, and the targeting of health facilities in some areas, HI aims to improve access to quality physical rehabilitation and mental health and psychosocial services (MHPSS) for conflict-affected vulnerable population (including injured), while also strengthening the capacity of existing health structures. Basic Needs To respond to the most acute needs for displaced households hosted by the local population or living in collective centres, HI will ensure they have access to sufficient and appropriate food, hygiene and non-food items (NFI) items, including tailored items responding to the specific needs of infants, older people and persons with disabilities. To this extend, HI will tailor its intervention modalities upon household needs whilst considering local market capacities in various geographical areas. Protection HI will ensure that vulnerable populations have access to tailored protection services (i.e. identification; orientation/information; direct service provision or referrals and tailored support to access existing services). Recent and ongoing attacks having dangerously exacerbated Explosive Ordnance (EO) contamination in Ukraine, HI will also conduct a multi-pronged approach to EO risk education and CPP, adaptable to the evolution of the conflict and humanitarian situation. In light of the grave concerns for vulnerable populations in Ukraine, including persons with disabilities, HI will not only ensure that responses are tailored to specific needs throughout its intervention, but will also foster a disability- inclusive humanitarian response. ATLAS Logistics ATLAS Logistics will operate a last-kilometre logistic platform (transport & storage) as close as possible to the area of distribution. In parallel and on an ongoing basis, ATLAS Logistique will conduct an in-depth analysis of the logistical capacities of the Ukrainian commercial sector and its adequacy to humanitarian needs in order to orient the AL operational response towards potential bottlenecks and gaps. HI in Ukraine is looking for a Program manager for 6 months.
