Widows and Orphans Empowerment Organization (WEWE) is soliciting experienced and qualified professionals to join its management team.

Widows and Orphans Empowerment Organization (WEWE), is a strong, upcoming faith-based local NGO, that is expanding its operations and workforce in Nigeria in line with its new five-year strategic plan and to align with international donor localization initiatives such as the Foreign Commonwealth Development Organization (FCDO) working with Women's Rights Organizations (WROs), USAID localization strategy, and the European Union’s interest in engaging more local organizations. 

WEWE is compiling a list of qualified and experienced professionals who will be on standby to be engaged if WEWE secures any grants this year 2024 and early next year 2025. If your application is successful, WEWE will reach out to you first when we win a new award.

Are you interested in joining a local organization, especially now that international donors are allocating more funds to local organizations?

Is your internationally donor-funded project ending, and as a result, will you be out of work in a few months?

Are you working in an insecure part of Nigeria and looking to relocate to the South-South or South West, where you are more familiar with the terrain?

Do you currently work far from your family and wish to move closer to them, perhaps to the South-South or Southwest? Then come and join the WEWE family.
