UNICEF Internship: Programme WASH Intern Jobs in Ethiopia

The conflict in Tigray has resulted in massive breakdown of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) services across the region. Resources coming to Tigray are inadequate to meet the demands on the ground, and the WASH situation has been alarming since partners are struggling to meet the minimum standards due to limited resources.

Currently, there are about 20 WASH partners working in the Shire area. UNICEF, being the WASH Cluster Lead, is expected to provide leadership role to enable timely and well-coordinated response. The intern will support WASH response in this L3 emergency location and will assist to coordinate, manage and provide rapid and effective responses for WASH emergencies.
