Senior Programme Manager Business Development Job Vacancy at WaterAid Tanzania Deadline: 12th October 2018
It’s hard to believe that today 844 million people do not have clean water and 2.3 billion do not have a decent toilet – around one in three of the world’s population. Every two minutes a child under five dies from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation.

WaterAid works through supporting local organisations and government authorities to design and demonstrate appropriate and sustainable WASH programmes. WaterAid also seeks to influence policy change through government and other key sector actors to secure and protect the rights of poor people to safe, affordable water and sanitation services.
WaterAid is looking for a Senior Programme Manager Business Development in Tanzania to play a vital role in our mission to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere.
