NGO Jobs / UN Jobs Vacancy

Closing date: 25 Jan 2018

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world. For every child,a champion

At UNICEF Chad, we have made important progress on nutrition, health, and WASH access. We are also working on improving the quality of education and health facilities. We are shaping our programs to respond to humanitarian and emergency situations, and working with partners to tackle all these issues more effectively. There is still much to be done, as around 47 percent of the population lives below the poverty line and there is a very high infant and child mortality rate, with high regional disparities. Join our team and help us make sure every child has a champion.
