United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) - State of Palestine is seeking qualified and experienced candidates for its Programme functional areas as indicated above.

Applications starting date: 23 May, 2015
Applications deadline: 3 June, 2015
Type of appointment: Individual Consultant

Duration of the assignment: June 2015 – April 2016 with possible extension

1-Programme information:
Project: Investing in Education and Building Resilience in Gaza


2-Background

Over eight months after the 50-day war of July 2014 ended with a ceasefire, the situation of children and adolescents in Gaza remains dire. Children were exposed to unprecedented levels of violence and destruction with 540 children killed, 2,956 injured and many struggling with life-long disabilities.

The recent conflict has had a tremendous impact on the education facilities. According to MOEHE reports, at least 281 schools (92 UNRWA and 189 government schools) were damaged, of which two government schools have been completely destroyed. Considering that prior to the crisis Gaza already faced a shortage of over 200 schools and two-thirds of schools operated on double shifts, destruction sustained during the war places significant constraint on the education system to provide quality education to all children.

As a result of the escalation of hostilities in Gaza in July and August 2014, a baseline analysis indicated that at least 373,000 children require direct and specialized psychosocial support on the basis of families who have experienced death, injury or loss of home. The Child Protection Rapid Assessment conducted in September 2014 found that the psychosocial wellbeing of children was significantly affected. 100% of respondents confirmed that there had been changes in children’s behaviour as a result of the psychological distress of the conflict.

3-Purpose of assignment
In partnership with al-Fakhoora, UNICEF is launching a project in Gaza aimed at rehabilitating schools, making them safer and child-friendly in view of improved learning environment; strengthening child protection networks and providing psychosocial support to children; engaging students so they can develop skills in civic leadership, advocacy and social media and raise awareness on the challenges they face in their daily lives.
The latter outcome will rely on: a student school design team; a virtual exchange platform (‘Virtual Majlis’) linking students in Gaza and Qatar; social media clubs in secondary schools; a student advocacy core team. Students will engage in community initiatives and a communication and advocacy campaign, using social media and other channels. This will contribute to positive change, while providing youth with skills that can be maintained, for the benefit of their communities and society beyond the time frame of the project.
