NGO Jobs in Kenya - Save the Children

Dimensions: Save the Children has been operational in Kenya since the 1950s, providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered both directly and through local partners. 

Current programming focuses on Child Protection, Child Rights Governance, Education, Health, HIV/AIDS, Livelihoods, Nutrition and WASH. 

In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined the programmes of SC UK, SC Canada and SC Finland to create a single operation in Kenya. 

In Feb 2013, we completed a second transition, which saw us join forces with the British INGO, Merlin, and merged their Health and Nutrition programmes with our own. Save the Children has an operational presence in Dadaab Refugee Camp, Garissa, Mandera, Bungoma and Turkana. 

We work through partners in many other parts of the country. We will have a staff complement of around 400 staff and an operating annual budget of approximately US$30 million.

Save the Children is rolling out a 3 year DFID funded project across four sites in Mandera County. 

The project seeks to build the resilience and adaptive capacities of vulnerable households, communities and government systems in Northern Kenya in the face of shocks or stresses.

The project’s key outcome is that communities in northern Kenya will have increased incomes, assets, and skills to sustainably reduce their vulnerability to shocks and stresses by the end of the three year project.

The project aims to achieve this outcome through three outputs:

ii. Women and youth from targeted households have received skill and asset building inputs enabling them to sustainably diversify their sources of income;
 
iii. County government systems for community development are strengthened and supporting community-led initiatives.

To improve the economic inclusion of youth (young men and women) the project conducted a labour market assessment. The assessment identified various skills development (e.g. technical and vocational training) to enable youth access available livelihood opportunities. 

Skills development shall be done through the existing Polytechnics (or Vocational Training Centre). This activity will also be informed by the gender mapping and analysis which was undertaken last year. 

The aim is to ensure social relations relative to changing livelihood patterns are understood and that a “Do No Harm” approach is adopted, particularly for young women taking up more independent roles in income earning. 

Part of the skills training shall seek to enhance uptake of the youth fund in Mandera County as this has been found extremely low.

This output has been delayed in terms of implementation by period of 11 months and was dependant on the Labour market assessment findings.
