Nepal Programme Country Coordinator

Salary: Competitive Package

Post Type: Full Time (based at Voice of Children, Lalitpur office)

Contract Type: Three years with 3 months probationary period

Project: CLARISSA - Child Labour Action Learning Innovation in Nepal

CLARISSA is a new programme to generate a strong evidence base on, and innovative solutions to, the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) in Nepal. It is neither a typical research programme, nor a typical NGO implementation programme – but is designed to build on the strengths of all Consortium partners to work towards a decrease in the number of children in the WFCL in the programme countries. Its focus is on surfacing key drivers of the worst forms of child labour and developing interventions to counteract them (preventing push factors at community, family and individual level and pull factors from unethical business).

The primary beneficiaries are children in the worst forms of child labour and those who are vulnerable to being drawn into it. The families of these children will benefit from greater resilience to shocks, better options for their children’s safe and healthy future and less intra-family stress and conflict. Businesses will benefit from practical solutions to child-labour free supply chains. Policy makers, NGOs, and researchers will benefit from a knowledge of what works.

The programme is arranged around four themes or ‘workstreams’ - Social Protection workstream, Social Norms workstream, Supply Chains and Children’s Realities and Agency

The consortium, funded by UK Aid from the UK Government and led by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) includes (in alphabetical order):

  • ChildHope UK
  • Consortium for Street Children
  • Ethical Trading Initiative
  • Terre des hommes

By taking a participatory, adaptive and child-centred approach to evidence and innovation generation, and using intentional scaling strategies, in each country activities will generate evidence of the drivers of and effective innovative interventions to reduce WFCL.
