Consultancy Title: Consultant – SRGBV Knowledge Mapping
Section/Division/Duty Station: Education/UNGEI Education Section/ PD/ NYHQ (Home Based).
Duration: January 2nd, 2020 – February 29th 2020 (Number of working Days: 40).
If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you. For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. UNICEF has over 12,000 staff in more than 145 countries.
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates the commitment of children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.
In line with Every Child Learns, the 2020-2030 education strategy, UNICEF is investing more improved learning and skills development for boys and girls from early childhood to adolescence, in particular for the most marginalized and those affected by humanitarian situations. UNICEF is doing more to promote equity and inclusion through specific efforts to reach the most vulnerable and via support to children in humanitarian and fragile contexts to access quality education opportunities.
Within this framework, UNICEF is committed to inter-agency cooperation and strengthening global goods that contribute to evidence-based programming.
The Global Working Group to End School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV WG), formed in 2014, is a coalition of over 50 agencies and more than 100 members, representing civil society, donors, academia, education unions, and UN agencies. Co-hosted by UNGEI and UNESCO, the SRGBV WG provides a platform for members to share and exchange knowledge, research and promising approaches from a range of different contexts in low- and middle-income countries. The SRGBV WG has played an important role in advocating for applying a gender lens in understanding and preventing school violence.
