Votre environnement de travail

Action Against Hunger has been operating in Afghanistan since 1979. Its very first mission, has seen a strong focus on emergency responses, targeting primarily refugees, Internally Displaced Persons, and flood/drought affected populations. Integrated projects in nutrition and health, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security and livelihoods, and in mental health and care practices are implemented in 4 provinces. Our work with local partners is essential to gain access to more geographical areas.

AAH is currently scaling its country programme to respond to the largest humanitarian crisis in the country for the last 40 years. AAH is playing a key role among the INGO community, being one of the longest standing INGO in the country, playing a critical role, notably in nutrition. In this evolving and volatile context, we need a strong Deputy Cluster Coordinator to support the Nutrition Cluster’s response. It is an interesting, rich but also a complex context where needs are high and the number of nutrition partners is significant.
