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. 

In 2017, 1,973 displaced persons had their access to sanitation and hygiene improved through latrines and hygiene kits, and 21,724 displaced persons benefited from cash distributions to support their immediate needs such as food, a shelter etc. 

In the coming years, ACF will focus on an integrated approach to respond to and prevent humanitarian crises, address vulnerability and reinforce longer-term resilience to food, water and nutritional crises and to improve the resilience of communities.

Since 2015, the Action Against Hunger Afghanistan mission operates with fewer bases, but with an increased number of staff. 460 national staff and 15 expatriates operate on 3 bases: Kabul, Helmand and Ghor. In 2017, activities were funded by institutional donors such as GAC, ECHO, OCHA, SIDA, UNICEF and the World Bank, amounting to 13.6 million euros. 

Security, working and living conditions: 

The security context is overall volatile. Movements and social opportunities are limited for Action Against Hunger expatriates depending on the situation and security rules set by the organisation. Currently under COVID-19 field movements by international staff are restricted, also in Kabul.

The Kabul base hosts the coordination office in charge of implementing water, sanitation and hygiene and nutrition projects aiming to reduce acute malnutrition in the Kabul Informal Settlements and in 26 health facilities. Expatriates share a guesthouse with moderate conveniences, an indoor sports room and a garden. A variety of restaurants and supermarkets are accessible depending on security rules and context. Movements may be restricted and a curfew strictly imposed. You are based in Kabul but the position requires the candidate to travel regularly to the field to manage a diverse series of geographically separated bases and programs that require senior management.
