WUSC Consultant-Engaging Men and Boys (EMB) Jobs in Kenya
WUSC – World University Service of Canada – is a leading Canadian non-profit organization in international development, committed to providing education, employment and empowerment opportunities that improve the lives of millions of disadvantaged youth around the world.
One of the KEEP’s key outputs is to mobilize community support to keep girls as long as possible so they may complete a full cycle of education.
The activity entitled “Engaging Men and Boys to mobilize support for girls’ education” is a key activity which will contribute to changing attitudes and behaviors of men and boys towards increasing support for girl’s education.
More specifically, a training for KEEP Community Mobilizers (CM) lead by Canadian Organization White Ribbon Campaign (WRC), a KEEP Innovation Partner, provides CMs training on how to effectively engage with Men and boys in targeted communities.
The goal for the training is to strengthen the involvement of Men and Boys in both refugee camps and their host communities in supporting girls’ education.
Through these trainings, KEEP aims to encourage boys and men to advocate in favour of the right of girls to enroll and remain in school, fully participate in educational activities and improve girl’s performance.
