Research Assistant, UgandaThe Water Trust in Uganda
The Water Trust (TWT) is an international NGO combatting disease and poverty in the developing world with investments in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Currently our geographic focus is Masindi District in Western Uganda. Our WASH model concentrates on shallow hand dug wells and boreholes with a complementary sanitation and hygiene program. Additionally, we implement a WASH in Schools program at local elementary schools. TWT's vision is simple: to live in a world where all people have access to clean water and practice healthy sanitation and hygiene behaviours. The need is most certainly there - 780 million people do not have access to clean water and over a billion people do not have access to a toilet. In order to support our team in Masindi, Uganda TWT is recruiting a Research Assistant. Applicants are currently being accepted.
