    Background

    Gender inequality is the most serious and pervasive form of discrimination in the world. While this affects everyone, it is women and girls who face the most discrimination because of gender inequality. This is a key driver of poverty and a fundamental denial of women’s rights. Women form the majority of those living in poverty. They have fewer resources, less power and less influence in decision making when compared to men. They are exposed to various forms of violence and exploitation and experience further inequality because of their ethnicity, age, race, class, marital status, sexual orientation and (dis)ability. Oxfam believe that transforming gender and power relations, and the structures, norms and values that underpin them, is critical to ending poverty and challenging inequality.

    Oxfam’s Country Strategy (OCS) launched in 2015 for implementation until 2020, identifies four key pillar programmes to attain the set objectives: Humanitarian response and preparedness, Sustainable Livelihood, Participatory Governance and Gender Justice.

    We are currently recruiting for an experienced Rwandan national for the position of:

    Electro- Mechanical Engineer for Mahama Refugees Water Treatment Plant, Kirehe District

    Oxfam in Rwanda has been at the forefront of supplying clean water in the Mahama refugees’ camp since 2015. Currently the Mahama Camp is hosting a population of 55,909 refugees who are all being supplied with clean water at required standards, in addition to supplying water to six surrounding villages in the camp’s host community and to a community school.

    In Mahama, water is supplied using a permanent water treatment plant.This plant is a conventional plant using a combination of coagulation, sedimentation, rapid sand filtration and disinfection to provide clean, safe water to beneficiaries.
