New International Consultancy : Disability Consultant, Product Innovations Centre, UNICEF Supply Division, Copenhagen. 11.5 Months deliverable based.
Location: Denmark
Closing Date: 26 Sep 2023 11:55 PM Romance Daylight Time
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action.

For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries.

This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

Deadline extended_Nat Consultant to support Ministry of Education and Research in the Republic of Moldova in the coordination of the Refugee Response to ensure the enrolment of refugee children in the Moldovan education system
Location: Republic of Moldova
Closing Date: 18 Sep 2023 11:55 PM GTB Daylight Time
The war in Ukraine has had a devastating humanitarian impact on children and families from Ukraine. UNHCR estimates that as of August 2023, roughly 5.8 million refugees from Ukraine have fled Ukraine since late February 2022 and are currently present in European countries. 

The Republic of Moldova shares a large border with Ukraine. Since late February 2022, Moldova has faced a huge humanitarian crisis with large influx of refugees entering Moldova due to the conflict in Ukraine. According to the UNHCR Data Portal, currently there are 109,226 Ukrainian refugees remaining in Moldova, including 50,092 children. In response to this crisis, several sector coordination working groups were established under the Inter Agency Refugee Coordination team including for the Education sector.

An Education Refugee Sector Working Group, under the leadership of MER, was established to enhance and strengthen the coordination of partners’ education interventions devoted to support the Government of Moldova in providing access to quality and inclusive education in safe and protective learning environments for refugee children living in Moldova.  

The Government of the Republic of Moldova adopted the temporary protection in January 2023, almost on year after the war on Ukraine, as an exceptional measure to provide protection, including access to services, to displaced persons from Ukraine who meet the eligibility criteria. Beneficiaries of temporary protection have access to employment, accommodation, education for children, emergency and primary healthcare as well as social assistance services.
