CONTEXT :

“Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations,
we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences,
where everyone can live in dignity”
Handicap International is changing his name and becomes « Humanity & Inclusion ». HI, Humanity & Inclusion is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in 62 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.
HI is engaged in an employment policy in favour of disabled workers.
For further information about the association: www.hi.org.
CONTEXT & OBJECTIVES:
Humanity & Inclusion’s Operation’s Division is composed of 5 Geographical divisions, 4 Technical divisions, an Emergency Division and an Information, Impact & Innovation Division.

One of the 4 Technical Divisions is the Prevention and Health direction. Its aim is to make sure that “Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages” can become a reality for people with disability and vulnerable populations all along the various Nexus contexts.

We focus on prevention of preventable impairments and disability inclusive health, and we work more specifically on road Safety and Safe Mobility (1 specialist), Mental Health and Psycho social support (4 specialists), Non communicable diseases (1 specialist), tropical neglected diseases, Sexual and Reproductive health, including Family planning, HIV, Maternal, newborn and child health (2 specialists) and Disability Inclusive Policies (1 Lead).
HI is a world leading actor in Road Safety and is currently one of only a few international NGOs fighting to put road safety on the development agenda and advocating for safety measures to protect vulnerable road users. We implement road safety programs designed to reduce the number of accidents and assist victims in places like Benin, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Laos, and Vietnam. Staff members collect and analyze data on road crashes; provide support and training to local NGOs, transportation specialists, police, and teachers; run awareness campaigns; and provide first aid at the scene of crashes.

DESCRIPTION :

After 10 year of successful projects implementation we are redefining the strategic orientation and the perimeter of HI interventions by expanding the boundaries of our scope to Safe Mobility. In a nutshell, building on our existing expertise in the five pillars of road safety programming as proposed by UN, we want to open up to Safe Mobility as the ability for a person to safely and reliably access preferred destination by navigating an environment considerate of his or her needs and preferences.
Therefore, we look at the whole mobility chain, i.e. the entirety of a person’s journey, for example going from one person's home to the bus stop, boarding the bus, traveling to the desired stop and eventually, the intended destination. We believe that Safe and inclusive mobility can have a domino effect towards enhancing an inclusive society that leaves no one behind.
Hi is looking for a dynamic and motivate Road Safety/ Safe Mobility expert to lead this new development phase.
