Job Opportunity: Country Programme Manager, Rwanda
Submitted by OHRConsultants on September 13, 2011 - 12:22pm.
Adaptive Eyewear is a UK-based, not-for-profit company working to fulfil the vision correction needs of underserved populations in the developing world. Our aim is to make low-cost eyeglasses, including adjustable eyeglasses, available to populations where access to eye care services is limited.
Vision for a Nation Rwanda is Adaptive Eyewear’s first national level program with the aim of providing all Rwandans aged 8 years and above access to free vision assessments and providing eyeglasses to all who need them. In June 2010 Adaptive Eyewear signed a 5 year Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Rwanda’s Ministry of Health committing to facilitate the distribution of eyeglasses to the Rwandan population by training community health workers and teachers to conduct vision assessments and training nurses to dispense eyeglasses to those people referred to their health centre.
The Country Programme Manager will be based in Kigali and will assume overall responsibility for managing all aspects of the Vision for a Nation programme in Rwanda, including quality assurance, across all districts. The Country Programme Manager will establish a country office for the programme and play a key role in ensuring that training and the implementation of product delivery to health centres is conducted to the highest standards in keeping with Vision for a Nation’s community-driven approach. The Country Programme Manager will serve under the overall guidance and supervision of Adaptive Eyewear’s CEO. On a day-to-day basis, the Country Programme Manager will be expected to work in close consultation with Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education representatives as well as Eyecare NGO representatives based in Rwanda.
