(MEAL) Lead Jobs Description
Save the Children is seeking a MEAL lead for an anticipated four-year USAID-funded Support for Accelerated Basic Education (SABE) Activity in South Sudan. This $10million – $25 million activity will expand access to learning opportunities for out-of-school children. This activity will target the 8–15-year-old learners to provide over-age out-of-school children and youth a chance to access an accelerated primary school program that would increase their chance of completing the primary school cycle. The Activity will apply two curricula whose effectiveness has been tested in South Sudan; the Community Girls’ School (CGS) curriculum has been effective in transitioning over-age girls and boys to upper primary classes at primary 5, while the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) enables over-age boys and girls to complete their primary education in four years instead of eight years.
The MEAL Lead develops, implements, and continuously improves monitoring, evaluation and learning systems for all project activities, while making sure that the project has a child-friendly and accessible Accountability to Children and Communities (ACC) system.
