Education Cluster Coordinator - P3

Mali, Bamako, Bamako - UNICEF

  UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.     For every child, hope The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programmes, 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. This is especially true in emergency contexts where children often lose their homes, family members, friends safety and routine. Mali remains one of the poorest countries in the world and 56 per cent of children still suffer from at least three deprivations. Despite some progress, significant economic, geographic and gender-based inequities remain. Limited budget allocations to social sectors and insufficient transfer of resources to decentralized authorities further undermine the social inclusion agenda. Since 2012, Mali which have been exacerbated by frequent natural disasters such as floods and drought. 3.9 million people, of whom half are children, are affected and the number of internally displaced persons (IDP) has dramatically increased to reach 201,400 in 2020 compared to 65,494 in February 2019. To increase humanitarian access and local support to communities, UNICEF in Mali will reinforce its approach of community acceptance to increase humanitarian access and local support to communities while strengthening the humanitarian-development continuum.  On top of natural disasters, Mali is also confronted with insecurity causing over 1,600 schools to be closed affecting about 500,000 children and about 10.000 Teachers. Among other, the education cluster spearheads the documenting of solutions and advocating for the reopening of schools.     How can you make a difference? Summary of key functions/accountabilities: Under the guidance and general supervision of the Chief Education, the Cluster Coordinator will support Education cluster structures at the national and regional levels for the efficient management and delivery of Humanitarian responses. This will involve the following - Effectively use and transfer information to, from and between cluster participants and other stake holders - Represents the Education cluster within the inter cluster coordination meetings chaired by UNOCHA - Support the Ministry of Education planning and Resources Mobilization director and Cluster partners in drafting / revising an annual Education Cluster response plan. - Maintain 5W mapping of Education sector humanitarian interventions - Support drafting of resource mobilization documents, drawing on analysis humanitarian situation to ensure proposals are focused and relevant - Identification of areas requiring inter-cluster partnerships and designing of intervention as requires (WASH, Child protection, Health, Nutrition, etc?) - Promote across education cluster partners community level consultative and feedback mechanisms - Monitor performance of the core cluster functions and report to UNICEF, Save children, Ministry of Education and Cluster partners on progress as against targets - Ensure effective communication, reporting engagement and coordination between national and the region levels Supporting service delivery - Provide a platform to ensure that service delivery is driven by the agreed strategic priorities. - Develop mechanisms to eliminate duplication of service delivery.
