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.

Present in more than 55 countries, HI is composed of 2 operational directions:
JOB CONTEXT :
Humanity & Inclusion (HI) has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving the protection, quality of life, and the promotion of the rights of persons with disabilities (PWDs) and other vulnerable individuals and communities. From 2006 to 2013, HI implemented a range of projects, shifting progressively from an emergency action/ repatriation to a resilience approach up to 2013.
In the course of the period, HI developed its long term presence in the country with resilience projects on promotion of rights of persons with disabilities, empowerment of Disabled People Organizations (DPOs), development of mental health, rehabilitation, and inclusive livelihood services in different areas (Bor, Yei, Juba).
Soon after the crisis in December 2013, HI – already implementing emergency response in Juba camps and Mingkaman IDP sites – started to receive multiple requests from humanitarian partners who were identifying gaps in the attention and responses for persons with disabilities and other persons in disabling situations (older persons, persons with debilitating diseases amongst others) affected by the emergency. Additionally due to the violent nature of the conflict, high numbers of persons had acquired temporary or permanent impairments as a result of conflict and displacement.
However, it soon became evident that the increasing complexity of requests required a more comprehensive mission to provide effective interventions in areas where no disability-related service had ever been available.
At this point HI established a flying team that was able to stay for up to one month in a specific location, providing targeted, tailored field support for wound-affected and persons in disabiling situations as well as extended mentoring for Humanitarian field staff. This showed positive impact through increased capacity of service providers who have improve the inclusiveness and accessibility of their ongoing responses for both persons with disability and other persons in disabling or vulnerable situations.
At April 2018, the program includes:
