Evidence Action Jobs in Iganga Officer, Program Implementation Carreer opportunities in Iganga vacancies in Evidence Action at Iganga

# Job Description

Our organization was founded in 2013 to address a big gap in the fight against
global poverty–many of the most promising interventions are either implemented
at a very small scale, or not at all. We set out to address this gap by
building programs that would scale evidence-based and cost-effective
interventions, leading to significant improvements in quality of life for
hundreds of millions of people.

Our model worked. In less than a decade, our two flagship programs, the Deworm
the World Initiative and Dispensers for Safe Water, have grown to measurably
impact over 280 million people each year. This success is achieved through the
dedication and talent of our staff, the hard work of our partners, and the
commitment of our supporters.

By 2024, we seek to double our impact. We are strengthening and expanding our
existing programs, and working to identify a new generation of evidence-based
and cost-effective interventions that we can scale to reach millions more.

Job purpose

Our flagship Dispensers for Safe Water DSW provides over 4 million people
across rural Uganda, Malawi, and Kenya. Recent evidence highlights that clean
water may be among the most effective interventions available to save young
childrens’ lives, averting more than 30% of all-cause child mortality. The
dispensers program – based on research for Nobel-winning economists – utilizes
an innovative and human-centric design to deliver clean water at the source in
rural settings, achieving usage rates which are 5x that of comparable
interventions.

Given the tremendous benefits of safe water, Evidence Action is rapidly
expanding in new areas to serve more people to access safe water not only

being Inline Chlorination ILC, a simple technology installed on non treated
pipped water sources
