Street Child is looking for individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the development sector by undertaking an international volunteering role in Nepal.

LOCATION: VARIOUS LOCATIONS IN URBAN AND RURAL NEPAL

THE ​ROLE
Street Child is looking for individuals hoping to gain valuable experience in the development sector by undertakingan international volunteering role in Nepal. Street Child has identified that out of school children is one of Nepal’s main development issues, particularly those in marginalised communities. Street Child is currently seeking to expand and advance a series of projects in Nepal which intend to provide children the opportunity to access education that is inclusive, sustainable and life-saving. This placement is a unique opportunity to make a critical contribution to an organisation that is setting up and scaling its efforts within various communities in rural and urban Nepal. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about the development sector through an immersive experience, and to make a lasting contribution to the organisation and its aim to empower children through education in South Asia.

THE ​CHARITY
Street Child's aim is to create educational opportunities for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. We began our work in 2008 in Sierra Leone working with a small number of street children, nine years later we have helped to transform the lives of more than 100,000 children across Sierra Leone, Liberia, Sri Lanka and Nepal. In 2017 we launched our first project in Nigeria helping children impacted by conflict in the North East of the country. Street Child is currently expanding its operations to Nepal, in an attempt to serve increasing numbers of children in need. Street Child of Nepal has been working with UNICEF and partner organisations to support the humanitarian relief effort in the earthquake affected areas of Nepal and is now exploring avenues for further impact.

Typical day

Street Child offers placements for four to twelve weeks, supporting work in our country office in Kathmandu as well as in the field where we collaborate with local partner organisations. Working alongside the Street Child of Nepal team, your key responsibilities may include but are not limited to:

● Conducting literature reviews on assigned issues, proposing frameworks for how these issues can be understood within Street Child
● Conducting primary and secondary research at field sites using bespoke methodologies and methods, including appropriate tools for research with children, their communities and other relevant stakeholders
● Collect, analyse and interpret data (qualitative and quantitative) from the research
● Creating/reviewing research papers with recommendations for Street Child and relevant stakeholders; these papers will form the basis for future research and initiatives
