About Kalle Musalilwa Silwimba

With over 8 years of experience in shelter and infrastructure development across diverse contexts, I bring a multifaceted skill set to every project. My journey has spanned developmental, humanitarian, and emergency settings, where I’ve honed my technical, administrative, and interpersonal abilities.

Key Roles and Achievements:

  1. Project Management:
    • As a Project Engineer/Manager, I have successfully led the implementation of over 80 construction projects. These projects encompass a wide range of facilities, including training centers, houses, hostels, schools, police posts, markets, office spaces, and local courts. The combined value of these initiatives amounts to approximately K40 million (USD 2,000,000).
    • My commitment to quality assurance and control measures ensures that projects are delivered to the highest standards.
  2. Community Engagement and Ownership:
    • I am passionate about fostering community ownership of our projects. By involving residents and enhancing their skills, we create sustainable solutions that benefit everyone.
    • Vibrant and proactive, I work tirelessly to ensure that our projects serve the community effectively.
  3. Environmental Responsibility:
    • Committed to environmentally friendly solutions, I design infrastructure that minimizes ecological impact while remaining cost-effective.
    • My proficiency extends beyond technical aspects—I excel in managing interpersonal relationships with contractors and administering contracts.
  4. Operations Management in Game Management Area:
    • As an Operations Manager within a Game Management area, I oversee critical aspects of wildlife conservation and habitat management.
    • My responsibilities include coordinating field operations, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations, and optimizing resource utilization.
  5. UNV Civil Engineer (WASH/Shelter) in Refugee Settlement:
    • For the past 4 years, I have served as a dedicated UN Volunteer (UNV) Civil Engineer in a refugee settlement.
    • In this role, I am responsible for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) facilities and shelter infrastructure.
    • I collaborate closely with international agencies, local authorities, and community leaders to improve living conditions for displaced populations.

I am driven by a sense of purpose—to make a positive impact on communities, whether through sustainable infrastructure, environmental stewardship, or humanitarian efforts. As an adaptable professional, I embrace new technologies and challenges with enthusiasm.
