Job Description

Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) is a not-for-profit company which helps to transform cities to benefit the millions who lack access to water and sanitation. WSUP works side-by-side with local providers, strengthening the organizations that have been tasked to deliver city-wide services. We are a trusted partner to utilities, municipalities and the private sector, supporting them to develop services, build infrastructure and attract funding that will help them reach low-income urban communities (LIUCs).
WSUP recently secured a grant from Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) via the Water for Africa through Leadership and Institutional Support (WALIS), funded by USAID. 
This project seeks to promote the role of Women in WASH in Ghana by strengthening gender and social inclusion in WASH sector leadership and decision-making. The grant will support the organizational development of the Women in WASH (WiWASH) network and ensure that its members have the capacity and resources to mentor women in WASH, disseminate learning, and influence and advocate from their own positions in the sector. It will also support WiWASH members in interacting with key national and community-based individuals, groups and organizations, through a series of meetings, a community event and a final project dissemination event, to share best practices and influence decision-making on how utilities can improve gender inclusion and sensitivity and contribute to the knowledge base of effective promotion of gender inclusion across the WASH system in Ghana. And, finally, work with key WASH sector stakeholders to identify challenges and opportunities in promoting inclusion at two national WASH organizations and use the findings to develop gender sensitive policies and procedures, and support staff members to implement and embed the recommended approaches in their organizations.
The support required as outlined in this ToR is to provide a digital platform and social media presence for the WiWASH network.
