CALL FOR INTEREST FROM CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS TO STRENGTHEN CAPACITY OF EDUCATORS ON CONFLICT SENSITIVE EDUCATION AND DISASTER RISK REDUCTION
July 1, 2019.
The conflict in the East of Ukraine continues to endanger the physical and psychological wellbeing of children, especially those living along the `contact line' where active hostilities are most intense and threaten education facilities. According to the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) 2019 there is widespread evidence of the cumulative effect of the conflict on 737,000 children and teachers learning and teaching in 3,500 education facilities. Education staff at all levels continue to be in need of support and training to strengthen their capacity to respond to emergencies and possible natural disasters triggered by the conflict.
Since the start of the conflict in 2014, there has been relatively limited capacity development on Conflict Sensitive Education (CSE) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for teachers in conflict affected areas. CSE is a non-prescriptive, ongoing approach to the “how” and “what” of education delivery in conflict and crisis contexts.
To facilitate sustainable development and resilience, capacity building on child centered DRR education is needed to minimize vulnerabilities and disaster risks while avoiding (preventing) or limiting (mitigating and preparing for) the adverse impacts of hazards, including those that may be triggered by the conflict.
UNICEF invites international and local CSOs to submit an expression of interest (EOI) to strengthen capacity of educators on Conflict Sensitive Education (CSE) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Donetska and Luhanska oblasts, Government Controlled Area (GCA).
Interested Civil Society Organisations are requested to submit signed EOI letter (Annex 1) and completed EOI form (Annex 2) by COB Friday, 12 July 2019.
Submissions can be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or delivered in a sealed envelope clearly marked “Expression of Interest - To Strengthen Capacity of Educators On Conflict Sensitive Education (CSE) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Donetska and Luhanska Oblasts, Government-Controlled Area (GCA)” to the following address: UNICEF Ukraine, 28 Institutska street, 01021, Kyiv Ukraine.
