hi
i recently applied for a job in East Africa Humanitarian Association (EAHA) an NGO that will be based in Rwanda and its HQ will be Nairobi. The problem is that they require us to pay a fee for work permit.

Hi Lilian welcome to AFI. You have not given us much to go on but you should never have to pay to get a job.

Another red flag is if they want you to pay via Western union or money gram.

That website is days old. Why would a site holder send emails out via a free email provider ie. Google mail? On their contact page it states the contact email address is info@eaha.co.ke and NOT gmail.

On their website they claim that they have the following funders:

UNITED NATIONS
WORLD BANK
CANADIAN UNION

I would check those facts out before parting with any money for Visa's. I would also contact any government body, for example Company Incorporations or similar to check if this company is registered and/or holds any necessary certificates etc

There is nothing on the web for EAST AFRICA HUMANITARIAN ASSOCIATION, that I personally find strange.

Not looking good =
why would a potential employer ask for money,for a Rwandan work permit visa,a foreigners ID card and medical test from a center of their own choice.That,and the fact that the mobile phone number that invited me for the interview is not the same that gave me job though its the same person.I dont want to be conned because the money involved adds upto Ksh 13,000.The NGO is called East Africa Humanitarian Association

What is the Ksh 13,000. for? It should never require a potential employee to pay any money to get a job.

I look forward to reading the answers to the many questions about these people on the internet.

  • Haggai Rabon'goOn 13 June 2015 you allowed one Harry Kibe to conduct interviews in your offices for a non exixsting NGO called East African Humanitarian Association. The said ngo is purpoted to be operating in Rwanda but listed nowhere in both domestic and international NGO listings. Can you please vet people you rent your offices to or was this a genuine interview?

  • Entrepreneur Development Centre (EDC)Haggai Rabon'goBoardroom is different from giving out an office ,we offer boardroom services to anyone who would like to use for a particular time and to be clear before giving out an office to somebody he/she must proof his/her company or business is legit we don't just give an office to somebody just like that...For your information we didn't give Harry Kibe an office here at E.D.C The only thing we gave him was the Boardroom to conduct the interviews nothing else .

  • Haggai Rabon'goIt Is Well. But I feel you should know the type of business for which you hire your boardroom for. Next time somebody may hire it to recruit al-shaabab(GOD FORBID). Wont you be held responsible for coluding with the recruiter? Know the motive of your client first otherwise you'll be perceived to be money minded ratger than championing for the economic empowerment of the jobless and citizens of Kenya At Large which I hope should be one of the objectives of your organization well articulated in its constitution. I intend no ill, please forgive me for any unforseen damage caused to you and your organisation

  • Njeri MugwimiI picked up the Harry Kibe issue with BrighterMonday too. I hope no one parted with their hard earned cash to those cons. They wasted my time though.

The 13,000 is the work permit fee, id card fee as it appears at the website www.kenya.embassy.gov.rw and medical test of ksh 4,500 which is not limited to our hospital or clinic. Haggai Rabongo is not part of Enterprenuel Development Center(EDC) as stated.

I advice that you consult more before posting, 'http://www.kenya.embassy.gov.rw' check at the website,www.kenya.embassy.gov.rw. We mentioned accredited center because we needed specific tests that some hospitals and clinics don't have, however we accept test from successful candidates who have medical insurance from other hospitals on condition of specific tests. We have an email info@eaha.co.ke

We still look forward answering all the question that arises.

Renixy do you have a land line phone number as +254737016204 seems to be a mobile number.

Can you tell me the permit class letter ID that the jobs refer to. From A to M which one do you use?
