Internship for Makani Centers in Camps (2 posts), UNICEF Jordan Country Office, Social protection Section (Paid)
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.
According to the UNHCR, there are 661,114 active Syrian refugees registered in the country as of 3 July 2017, 52% of whom are children. Initial results of the latest census completed by the Government of Jordan in December 2015 indicated that Syrians constitute 12.5% [1.2 million in total] of the total Jordanian population, adding significant pressure on the country’s resources. Around 20% of all registered Syrian refugees live in 4 refugee camps located close to the Syrian border: Zaatari, Azraq, King Abdullah and Emirati Jordanian Camps.
UNICEF has been on the ground in the camps since they were established, leading the provision of WASH and Education services as well as being an active member of the protection and health and nutrition sectors. From 2017 through 2020, UNICEF’s ‘most likely’ planning scenario involves Syrian refugee camps in Jordan continuing to host approximately 100,000 refugees provided the conflict in Syria goes on. Under the scenario, UNICEF would retain the accountability to ensure that children living in these camps –more than half of the population – are able to realize their rights to survival, protection and development.
UNICEF Makani centres offer a multi-sectoral approach to service provision to children and young people, girls and boys, families and community members. It aims to promote and contribute to children and young people’s full development and well-being – physical, cognitive, social and emotional.
