Job Description

Street Child is looking for individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the development sector by undertaking an international volunteering role in Nepal or Sri Lanka. Street Child is currently seeking to expand and advance a series of projects in South Asia 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 -

● Overseeing the research and implementation of projects; including travel to the field sites where necessary

● Coordinating 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

● Monitoring and evaluating the progress of projects to ensure they are on target to reach the outlined timeframes and intended impact

● Liaising and working in collaboration with local partners and stakeholders

● Identifying potential local and international funders and writing in depth funding proposals to these organisations as required

● Creating research papers based on data collected from the field which provide recommendations for Street Child and relevant stakeholders; these papers will form the basis for future research and initiatives

● Conducting literature reviews on assigned issues and proposing frameworks for how the issues can be addressed within the Street Child framework

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.
