Save the Children

Job Vacancy: MEAL Officer - Mandera

Job Ref: 001988
 
Job Location: Mandera, Kenya

Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. 

We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
 
Role Purpose: Save the Children International is a 'full spectrum’ organization that seeks to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and create lasting change in children’s lives.

Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability & Learning (MEAL) is a core function in all Save the Children International programs globally, representing our commitment to accountability and transparency, and is crucial aspect of program quality management within Save the Children.

The MEAL officer will support the MEAL functions for Contraception without Borders in Kenya project in Wajir/Mandera counties. 

Save the Children will implement this project which will develop and test a scalable model to increase use of family planning (FP)— nomadic and semi-nomadic communities in six sub-counties located in Wajir (West, North, Eldas) and Mandera (North, Banisa, Takaba) and engage regional stakeholders to share lessons from working with these communities and encourage adoption and/or adaptation of our model.

6.                  Conduct data quality assessment to ensure that data reported is validated, is accurate and consistent while providing feedback as necessary to program teams;
7.                  Support design and monitoring of quality benchmarks and take lead in monitoring project quality benchmarks to ensure that project quality standards are not compromised.
8.                  Maintain an action tracker for the project while ensuring that actions agreed upon from debrief meetings with program teams are actioned.
9.                  Support the implementation of processes to review the quality of project data, collection methods and the suitability of the existing data for the provision of sound baseline information;
·                     Ensure strong accountability mechanisms are set up and monitored, that information is correctly shared with beneficiaries through the most appropriate mechanisms and that beneficiaries actively participate in project activities.
·                     Maintain and update a complaints and response mechanism database for tracking feedback from communities and ensure that the feedback/complaints are responded to.
