Water Engineer in West Africa

Are you passionate about conserving water and sustaining life in the desert?

WEC aims to provide drinking water to communities that do not have access to it.

Join our team to plan, supervise and follow up on water projects in a desert region of West Africa.

Through these we want to build and nurture relationships with local leaders and families, in order to establish communities of disciples of Jesus who reproduce across the African Sahel.

Besides working out of the office and meeting with communities, you will be expected to give time to learn the local language.

Qualities & Gifts Sought

You are a civil water engineer with some work experience.

You're willing to share your own practical knowledge and skills, and to cope with quite basic living conditions.

You are a French speaker up to level B2, with some Biblical and cross cultural training.

About West Africa

WEC works in 9 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa, and also seconds workers to partner organisations and churches in other African countries.

Our teams seek to work together with local churches to show and speak of the compassion of Jesus to those who have not heard in order to see churches established among them.  WEC in Africa also seeks to mobilize and facilitate local Christians for cross cultural mission.

We cannot give details online about the countries, situations and opportunities we have found where you can serve in West Africa, but we will be able to tell you more when you meet us face to face.

This is an exciting time for the African continent - many challenges but also many opportunities. Why not join us in the adventure?
