Village Health Works (VHW) is a joint American-Burundian NGO based in Kigutu, Bururi Province whose mission is to provide quality, compassionate health care in a dignified environment while treating the root causes of illness, poverty, violence, and neglect in collaboration with those we serve. VHW’s approach integrates clinical services with education, food security, economic development, environmental protection, music and the arts.
Village Health Works has embarked on an ambitious project to build a District Level Hospital that will be a foundation for educational, training and research programs. The 150-bed facility will provide comprehensive medical care focusing on establishing surgical and obstetrical services in the region and developing the capacity to provide specialty clinical services not available in Burundi.
We are currently finalizing the terms and conditions of a Design and Build contract with the Swiss-owned, Rwandan-based construction company ROKO Construction Limited (ROKO). ROKO has been engaged with this project for over a year and has already completed site establishment work.
We are seeking a licensed professional architect with 10 years experience to serve as our ‘Client Representative’ through the completion of the construction of the hospital. The candidate will reside full-time on the VHW campus in Burundi through the construction of the hospital, which is anticipated to conclude in 2019.
