About the programme

Our focus is to improve the security and wellbeing of these communities by returning safe land for productive use. In the future, we also plan to develop small Arms Management and Destruction (AMD) projects. We are seeking to recruit a Finance and Support Services Manager to help successfully design, implement, manage and monitor the finances, systems and processes
