Organization: Street Child
Closing date: 01 Mar 2017
Street Child is searching for dedicated individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the charity sector by undertaking a volunteer placement in Nepal. The programme is unlike any other, designed for people willing to donate their time and skills to help empower Nepalese children in gaining access to education during the earthquake recovery phase.
It is a rare opportunity to gain valuable humanitarian relief experience and a well-rounded insight into the non-profit sector. We offer placements in Nepal for anything between 4- 12 weeks, directly supporting Street Child's work with some of the most vulnerable children in the world. This is a new start-up project and the selected individual would be working in a very small team.
Working alongside the Project Coordinator key responsibilities will include:
Support the Street Child humanitarian relief team in all facets of their work.
Support the project coordinator in capturing information and liaising between all partners.
Coordinate with the District Education Officer on project progress and implementation.
Collecting information to share with stakeholders such as UNICEF, the Ministry of Education and the Education Cluster.
