HI is currently seeking a qualified and motivated person to work in the position of UXO Project facilitator Volunteer
Position type: 7 Months contract
Base location: Huamuang District, Huaphan provinces.
Lao PDR is a landlocked country situated in Southeast Asia. Lao PDR is the most bombed country in the world per capita, with more than 270 million cluster sub-munitions dropped on it during the Vietnam War from 1963 to 1974. All 17 of the country’s provinces still suffer from UXO contamination and more than 90% of the people in these areas live in fear of UXO.
Commencing in January 2018, a new UXO Project was launched in Lao PDR, which is based in the Houamueang District of Houaphan Province around two hours’ drive from Sam Neua. The project aims to reduce the humanitarian and socio-economic risk posed by UXO on rural life and livelihood through a comprehensive approach of Survey and UXO Clearance, Mine/UXO Risk Education, Behavioural Change Interventions, Victim Assistance and Advocacy within 44 target villages involving some other partners like GRET, Oxfam and UXO Lao.
Through its UXO project, HI aims to reduce the threat of UXO/mines by raising awareness and promoting safe practices. HI’s Risk Education team delivers safety briefings to villagers and conducts movie events to promote safe practices in UXO/mines contaminated areas. With the aid of community volunteers, the RE team develop a community-based risk management plan for each village to continue delivery of UXO/mines safety messages and designate a focal point for UXO reporting and marking. To support the RE activities, the volunteer will develop the existing materials used to deliver RE, as well as design new material adapted to the Houaphan context. To promote UXO awareness and safety at the provincial level, HI aims to establish a UXO Education Centre within the HI Provincial Office in Sam Neua, which will also serve to provide information of services for persons with disability. Through its various projects, HI Laos aims to promote the rights and inclusion of persons with disability safety in Lao PDR
