Restless Development Nepal has signed strategic partnership with UNICEF education to implement Zero Tolerance -GBV free in Schools in Nepal. The overall goal of programme is “to ensure that targeted schools are safe spaces free of all forms of gender based violence, where girls and boys are able to equitably learn and become empowered to protect themselves and counter harmful social norms and practices”. The program will leverage the ongoing work by establishing or strengthening connections between education and child protection actors to ensure that schools are free from gender-based violence in all its forms. Through training, advocacy and awareness activities, school actors will gain knowledge of child rights, understand the impact of GBV, including child marriage. Moreover, linkages between child protection actors in communities and schools will be established or strengthened to support learners and teachers to apply their knowledge and ensure they have the skills and resources to respond adequately when gender-based violence occurs.
We are looking for an Officer who can work closely with the gender-based violence coordinator to implement the zero tolerance project in Restless Development Nepal. He or she will support on the implementation of the programme through partner NGOs and support regional staff to build the technical capacity to implement programming.
The closing date for this position is Sunday 3rd July. Please return completed application forms to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
