Program Manager (Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe )


The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) started its Caribbean program in 1983 and has been registered in Haiti since 1995. The current strategy, covering the period 2015 – 2020 is entitled “Building Resilience in Haitian Communities” and focuses on the four strategic areas of intervention: Emergency-preparedness and response, Sustainable livelihoods, Human Rights / Rights-Based Approach and Organizational Effectiveness. The implementation is done with and through local civil society partners, and geographically, the work is concentrated in the Grand’Anse and West departments.

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (DKH) is in Haiti since 2007.  The role of the office is to support local partners with the implementation and monitoring of humanitarian projects.  The majority of the projects take place in the department of the South-East, with some others in the South and North-West.  The main interventions in Haiti are about emergency preparedness and response planning, immediate response, food security and disaster risk reduction.

In 2015, DKH and LWF decided to integrate their organizational structures in Haiti, to tackle the triple challenge of covering operational costs, reduced funding and increased needs in the country, and to take advantage of synergies and complementarities. While both organizations will continue to adhere to their respective mandates in Haiti, they operate in one office under a joint Country Director, governed by a Cooperation Agreement. Processes to harmonize procedures, regulations and standards are underway. An initial review of respective programs and partners has been launched, and the process of aligning strategies and programs will take place in 2016.

In this context, DKH and LWF are looking for an experienced Program Manager.
