The WASH Program Manager will serve as the lead for the project, "Surprise Soap Innovation."

The project will be implemented in Naivasha, targeting the South Sudanese refugees.

S/he will also support the implementation of ongoing WASH activities in Khartoum (Naivasha and Bentiu), supervise one WASH Officer and multiple enumerators, and represent CARE in the WASH cluster coordination meeting.

Surprise Soaps are novel transparent soaps with different toys embedded inside them and are designed to motivate children's handwashing through play and curiosity. The soaps are delivered to children in short and fun sessions within the household and, unlike traditional handwashing interventions, do not rely on health-based messaging. The simple hypothesis is that children are motivated to wash their hands more often to reach the toy inside.
