Programme Support Officer

Street Child of Nepal

Street Child is an international charity based in the United Kingdom that aims to create avenues for out of-school children to access education through an integrated approach that strengthens the capacity of teachers, schools and communities to sustain their investment in the education for their children. Following the devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015 that left more than 1 million children out of school and destroyed or damaged over 50,000 classrooms, Street Child UK expanded its operations into Nepal to assist local partners to re-establish education in some of the country’s worst affected communities. With the support of DFID, it is now implementing an education and livelihood program targeting marginalized girls in Dhanusha, Mahottari, Siraha, Saptari and Sunsari districts.
