ICS Research Assistant Jobs in Kenya
Organizational Background: ICS- SP is an innovative African NGO that works in rural areas of Africa together with families, communities, and other stakeholders to create safe and nurturing environments for children to reach their full potential. At the very core of our work is Skillful Parenting and Ending Violence against Children. These are embedded in well-targeted economic empowerment and agribusiness programs that aim to improve household income and food security. In our experience, this combined approach leads better chances of sustainably securing the wellbeing of children and their families.
Our goal is for every child to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment so that they can reach their full potential. A goal we aim to achieve by working with parents and caregivers, by strengthening families and communities, and by strengthening and influencing governments, civil society and private sector towards better policies and practices to fulfil children’s rights.
Since 2012, ICS SP has worked towards making primary schools safe, supportive and non-violent. We have implemented multi –level INSPIRE strategies to address violence in and around schools. Continuous learning and improvement is part of our values. We have over the years collected data that has helped refine the various interventions strategies. The data collected also suggest that that the approaches are working to address VAC. However, there is need to continuously have valid and credible evidence to help focus investments and scale up interventions that demonstrate positive effects.
In particular, we aim to study the effects of the whole school approach intervention to understand better whether the approach has had a positive effect in preventing and reducing incidences of violence in and around schools and improving educational outcomes. Therefore the Organization is looking for qualified and experienced Research Assistant to assist in realizing its objective.
