Stages : UNICEF recrute un(e) Stagiaire en évaluation et suivi des capacités de sauvegarde, New York, Etats-Unis.





Purpose of the internship:

Education Cannot Wait (ECW) is the United Nations global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. We support quality education outcomes for refugee, internally displaced and other crisis-affected girls and boys, so no one is left behind. ECW works through the multilateral system to both increase the speed of responses in crises and connect immediate relief and longer-term interventions through multi-year programming. ECW works in close partnership with governments, public and private donors, UN agencies, civil society organizations, and other humanitarian and development aid actors to increase efficiencies and end siloed responses. ECW urgently appeals to public and private sector donors for expanded support to reach even more vulnerable children and youth. ECW is administered under UNICEF’s financial, human resources and administrative rules and regulations; operations are run by the Fund’s own independent governance structure.

Under the overall guidance of the Director of ECW and the direct supervision of the Chief, Strategy, Planning and Accountability (who leads ECW’s Strategic Planning and Accountability Team), the intern will provide technical and operational assistance to various processes while learning about organisational processes to support the implementation of the ECW work plan. The focus of the internship will be on implementation of 2023 safeguarding deliverables, which will contribute to strengthened safeguarding practice in the areas of both child safeguarding and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA).

Main duties
The intern will work primarily with ECW’s Senior Safeguarding Specialist across the ECW investment portfolio on a range of deliverables, including:

  • developing and maintaining ECW’s safeguarding capacity assessment database.
  • conducting a stock-take of existing PSEA capacity assessments of ECW partners and identifying assessment gaps.
