Job Description/Requirements

Hand in Hand Eastern Africa (HiH EA) is a registered NGO in Kenya and Tanzania and is part of the Hand in Hand global network. The organization started operations in Kenya in October 2010 and is currently operating in 26 Field offices within 33 out of 47 Counties in Kenya.
