VSO is the world’s leading development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. We are unique in the way we bring people together to share their skills and experience, generate insights and ideas and, most of all, take action against poverty and exclusion. It’s a highly effective approach that works, helping millions of people in some of the world’s poorest communities lift themselves out of poverty. Our programmes focus on the areas of health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work together and that strong partnerships are crucial to delivering positive change.
This is a national volunteer role responsible to support in contextualising and implementing a robust, participatory monitoring and evaluation system that can provide clear data to advocate for the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Righ of marginalized youth groups and use as evidence of the programme’s outcomes and impact. The M&E Specialist will work in a team with other M&E Specialist and technical staff member to ensure that relevant data are collected, analysed, and used to inform management and design decision, and to provide programme updates, as required.
This is not a paid job but a volunteering opportunity to give back to the community we are part of. However, a modest amount of stipend will be given to support the living expense of the volunteer. Join us as a VSO volunteer and help us work towards our vision of a world without poverty.
