The Regional Programme Unit's over-arching goal for the period 2019 - 2021 is to ensure regional accountability for child rights, with the aim that children in the East and Southern Africa Region (ESAR) are safe and protected. This provides leverage so that the rights of children be respected, protected and fulfilled by African governments where SCI has a presence in the region. It supports and strengthens the work of Save the Children in our countries of operations. Country offices in turn provide the basis on which to respond and articulate the needs of children.
The Regional Programme Unit: delivers activities with regional institutions including the Africa Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC), the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the East African Community (EAC); the Southern African Development Community (SADC); and regional civil society organizations. The scope of work includes policy and advocacy harmonization through training workshops, consultation events, learning events, research, supporting regional partners to deliver activities that are aligned with the regional ambition and coordination of the work of country offices for multi-country initiatives on child rights governance.
The CRG Coordinator position uses his/her technical knowledge in child rights governance and partnership management to support the delivery of activities aimed at ensuring that child rights issues are protected and promoted in ESA. It also requires the ability to liase with RPU programme, support staff and partners in understanding Save the Children's Safeguarding Framework and Adult Safeguarding Policies (Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse - PSEA - and Anti-Harassment Policy), including how to report any concerns.
