VACANCY
Country Team Leader (CTL)
Christ’s Hope International (CHI) is a Christian organisation that cares for orphans and vulnerable children infected with and/or affected by HIV and AIDS. Children are best when in families and that’s where we want to see them. However, families often lack adequate support to provide for the children in their care and that’s where we come in. Through our unique approach and in combination with key players in the community, we screen and select the neediest of families and through our program,
their children benefit from a holistic care-model that provides schooling, health care, tutoring, life-skills and emotional and social support. Children get the opportunity to become CYCLEBREAKERS and transform their families which extends to the entire community.
Christ’s Hope International started its activities in Uganda in 2015. It took some time to really get started but today the ministry has grown to a team of roughly 10 people, caring for 100 children in one location in the Bweyogerere area. We are looking for a strong Christian leader that can lead our team on the ground and who can help us grow the ministry and develop with the organisation so that many more children get exposed to the gospel and be guided towards independent, Christian leaders, transforming their community in term.
We invite strong leaders that are uncompromisingly Biblical and unashamedly Christian and who have a passion for God and His children to apply for this position. Acquired skills in management and leadership are essential. Strong communications skills, people skills and spiritual maturity are critical to this position, as well as a self-sacrificing and hard-working attitude.
Christ’s Hope International brings the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to children and families infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS through care-giving and discipling, presenting the perfect in Christ Jesus.
