Job Description

Jairos Jiri Association is a big local NGO in Zimbabwe which seeks to recruit an outstanding and result oriented Orthopaedic Technician. Jairos Jiri Association mainly focuses on advocacy for People With Disabilities. This issue is addressed in a holistic manner. JJA notes that the traditional approach of viewing PWD from a charity perspective is still prevalent. This approach if allowed to continue disempowers PWD and makes them vulnerable to unscrupulous members of society. JJA is certain that policy advocacy work at all tiers, i.e. community, local government and national government levels will empower PWDs and change the whole disability sector. Jairos Jiri Association also focuses on Business Enterprise and Resource mobilisation – Giving trends have shifted in the last 15 years in Zimbabwe. Coupled with a non performing economy, it is now difficult for JJA to maintain resource levels of the 1980s and 1990s. Despite this, JJA is a credible and accountable organisation. These values together with well-grounded business strategies will be leveraged on to generate funding. The emphasis will be to make JJA an income generating organisation and minimise the running of the Association from external resources. The organisation also focuses on representation of PWD – JJA sees its continued role as that of taking head on cultural barriers facing PWDs so as to transform behaviours of the community towards people with disabilities.
