Haiti Outreach is a leader in creating collaborative Monitoring, Evaluation, and Planning schemes in Haiti’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygeine (WASH) sector*. The core to its success is the focus on building Transparency, Integrity, Authority and Responsibility within the organization and across the water sector. This position provides a unique opportunity to help create the monitoring schemes that the sector uses and guide its strategy to 100% access to potable water. We are looking for a leader that can work with local, regional and national partners to step out of the project based approach and drive transparent, data-driven plans for the realization of universal access to WASH services. This position is for someone who seeks to change the conversation from short term, externally driven aid, to long term, Haitian-led development.
