PROJECT ADMINISTRATOR - Congo Leprosy Eradication

CONGO LEPROSY ERADICATION PROJECT – PROJECT ADMINISTRATOR

Location: The Kimia Center, Impfondo, Republic of Congo

Dates: Customize your trip, consider a duration of six months or a longer-term opportunity.

Who:  Indigenous people of the Congo region – Aka pygmies

Accommodation:  The Kimia Center

Did you know that the indigenous people of the Congo region are Aka pygmies? Although diminutive in stature, they are renowned for their bravery and ability to hunt, fish, and thrive in the jungle. Unfortunately, they are discriminated against and marginalized by the majority population. On top of that, their community has a very high rate of leprosy. 

The good news is that there is a cure for leprosy! The bad news is that it is very difficult to locate and medically treat nomadic people who are often on the move.

The Kimia Care Center is one piece of the larger solution as it provides accommodation for patients and their families as they undergo initial treatment. The longer-term plan is to have them reintegrate into their communities while being monitored by trained health personnel. 

In this manner, it is our privilege to help those who have contracted leprosy and work toward eliminating leprosy from the Congo.

Are you willing to be part of the solution? 
Are you willing to act as the hands of Jesus showing love to the Aka people?

We are in urgent need of a Project Administrator for the Kimia Care Center to provide support to the committed individuals already doing the work. We seek a person who has field experience with health or development projects in Africa.  The ideal candidate will be able to effectively strategize, direct, and monitor projects, and lead a team of local and field workers.  The person should be able to ensure adherence to set timelines, budgets, and frequently reports on progress and key donors.  The person will be a good organizer, with strong interpersonal skills.

If any aspects of the above opportunity resonate with you, be sure to contact us to see if this could be a fit for you.
