Street Child is looking for individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the development sector by undertaking an international volunteering role in Sri Lanka or Nepal. Street Child is currently seeking to expand and advance a series of projects which intend to provide children the opportunity to access education that is inclusive, sustainable and life-saving. This placement is a unique opportunity to make a critical contribution to an organisation that is setting up and scaling its efforts within various communities in rural and urban South Asia.
Street Child offers placements for four to twelve weeks, supporting work in our country office as well as in the field where we collaborate with local partner organisations. Working alongside the Street Child team, your key responsibilities will include but are not limited to -
● Conducting literature reviews on assigned issues, proposing frameworks for how these issues can be understood within Street Child
● Conducting primary and secondary research at field sites using bespoke methodologies and methods, including appropriate tools for research with children, their communities and other relevant stakeholders
● Collect, analyse and interpret data (qualitative and quantitative) from the research
● Creating/reviewing research papers with recommendations for Street Child and relevant stakeholders; these papers will form the basis for future research and initiatives
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about the development sector through an immersive experience, and to make a lasting contribution to the organisation and its aim to empower children through education in West Africa and South Asia.
