Occupational Therapist - Haiti

Our partner in Port au Prince, Haiti seeks a qualified Occupational Therapist for it's Special Needs Programme. The Programme provides residential, educational and therapeutic services to children and adults with physical and neurological disabilities and their families. It does so with the stated aim of achieving participation, equality and full human rights for individuals with disability in Haiti, where poverty, prejudice and a lack of state services can often lead to the neglect and abandonment of this vulnerable population. In addition to its core activities, the Special Needs Programme uses training, advocacy and partnership arrangements with like-minded organisations to work towards this aim.
