This is your opportunity to join an innovative sanitation project in Vanuatu and support communities in Vanuatu to access sanitation.
Since 2015, EWB has been working with Live and Learn Vanuatu on the early stages of the Western Pacific Sanitation Marketing and Innovation Programme. This programme aimed to improve sanitation and hygiene access and behaviours by improving supply chains and demand for sanitation and hygiene and creating supportive environments in communities that enable behaviour change to occur. Live and Learn's innovative approach to sanitation in the South Pacific is based around establishment of Community Based Sanitation Enterprises (CBSEs). These enterprises are run and owned by the local community and are a market based approach to sanitation. In 2017, a second EWB placement was initiated to strengthen the skills and capacity of the construction teams within the CBSEs.
The next phase will involve expanding to Espiritu Santo through the establishment of a CBSE in Luganville. The focus of this role will be supporting the newly formed CBSE in Luganville with some additional support being provided to the two existing CBSEs in Port Vila.
The Sanitation Technical and Business Mentor will spend approximately 40% of their time on providing business support and 60% providing technical mentoring and construction support.
Working in collaboration with EWB Australia, this placement offers you a great opportunity to make a real impact on the sanitation sector in Vanuatu.Read more
