United Purpose (UP) Malawi is an international non-governmental organisation working to create opportunities for lasting improvement in peoples’ lives. We work in partnership with others to support a range of livelihoods and food security, WASH and health, sustainable energy and gender equality programmes reaching over 1,000,000 people a year across Malawi. Globally, we work in nine countries across Africa, Asia and South America, however our Malawi programme is by far and away our largest and most established country programme. UP currently operates in 17 districts in Malawi, supporting 24 on-going projects, and a team of 180.
UP is implementing various WASH Projects in Dowa, Thyolo, Dedza, Lilongwe, Mzimba, and Zomba districts primarily targeting underserved communities working in close collaboration with relevant Government line ministries and WASH actors. The goal of the program is to contribute to reduction in morbidity and mortality of rural people in Malawi, especially under five children caused by WASH related diseases. The objective is to increase access to safe water and improved sanitation and hygiene practices in target communities and selected schools and ensure sustainable operation and maintenance of WASH facilities by beneficiaries in partnership with the district councils and private sector.
UP Malawi is therefore seeking to recruit a talented and dynamic WASH Projects Manager to lead technical program delivery in the target districts. S/he must firmly be committed to delivering lasting positive improvements to the communities that we serve, and delivering UP’s mission and upholding our values of integrity, dignity, and environmental respect.
