Jump to Comments

Save the Children’s GIRL Project is a three-year project funded by the Nike Foundation, and supplemented by annual income from the Xerox Foundation endowment.  The GIRL project’s strategic objective is sustained increase in volume and quality of Save the Children’s programs serving girls.   The project supports and builds Save the Children’s commitment and capacity to ensure an intentional focus and response to the distinct gendered needs and barriers of our project beneficiaries, so that gender is an integrated lens for all our programs, both within SCUS and across Save the Children International. Based partly on the GIRL project, the Save the Children Movement’s gender Working Group has been drafting a gender policy, now under review.  This calls for greater attention to gender issues across our programming, and provides a context for the gendered tools and analyses supported by the GIRL Project.  The candidate is expected to work 35 hours/week, starting January 27, 2014 to May 16, 2014. A monthly stipend of $1,200 will be paid. For more information on requirements and application process, click here.


Save the Children is the leading independent organization for children in need, with programs in 120 countries, including the United States. We aim to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives by improving their health, education and economic opportunities.
