Vacancy - Project Manager, Burundi
Kepplewray is looking for a person or couple to work in Burundi to manage an exciting project seeking to help disabled people through outdoor activities and village development work. Many were maimed in the Rwanda/Burundi genocide and are often kept hidden from mainstream society. This work saves lives - physically and spiritually.
This is not for the faint-hearted. The location is Muyinga where there are few expatriates. Good French would be a big advantage. The term of service is negotiable.
Full details are on the Bethesda web site (opens in new window)
At Kepplewray in Cumbria we also have regular opportunities for work placements and volunteers
Kepplewray challenges exclusion and is founded on a commitment to bring disabled and
non-disabled people together as equal partners.
