Consultant- Training Services On Electrification At Action Against Hunger

Date Posted: 15/Apr/2019
Deadline: Not Specified

Action Against Hunger is one of the leading humanitarian organizations working in over 40 countries in the world with the aim of fighting against hunger among vulnerable populations. The areas of interventions include health and nutrition, water and sanitation, hygiene promotion, food security and livelihoods, working in an integrated manner to fight hunger and undernutrition. As other Action Against Hunger interventions address the direct impacts of malnutrition, the WASH activities address the underlying causes of malnutrition such as unsafe water, a lack of sanitation and inadequate hygiene practices, through sustainable solutions. In Nigeria, Action Against Hunger opened its country office in Abuja in 2010, and started its operational activities in early 2011. From the onset, Action Against Hunger focused on the northern part of the country because it was the most under-served by international aid and most vulnerable in terms of development and poverty. Yobe was then the most vulnerable state of Nigeria as a result of both the nutrition and humanitarian crisis in the area. Action Against Hunger began activities in Maiduguri, Borno in 2014 to address the nutrition, health, FSL, WASH, and shelter needs of IDPs, returnees and host communities in Maiduguri, and, since late 2016, also in Monguno, Nganzai and Kukawa.
