Jobs/Roles in the ECE Community: Internationally

This week we are focusing on organizations that are international.  

UNICEF believes that quality education is a right for all children, whether in the developing world or amidst conflict and crisis.

I chose UNICEF, because I remember being a child and going trick or treating, while carrying the small little box, asking for quarters for UNICEF. I didn't understand fully what they did, but as a child, I knew it was important to do something to help other children. Currently, I work at a center, that has received financial grants from UNICEF. 

They had several job openings posted for positions all over the world. These positions varied from direct relief work with children to video production for promotion. Locations of the positions varied from their headquarters in New York to Brazil, Mali, Jerusalem, and anywhere in between.

2. Compassion International. In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.

I chose Compassion International because they have helped so many orphans across the world receive financial support to be able to be provided for. 

They had several job openings posted. Most of these positions were located at their headquarters in Colorado, but there were several in international as well. These positions also varied from direct interaction with kids or sponsors, to the marketing and administrative aspects of making the organization run for the benefit of the children it supports.

3. More than Me  More than Me  uses education as a catalyst for transformative social change for every girl in Liberia. 

I chose More than Me, because they have been a huge catalyst for educational change for girls in Liberia, and they were also a contributing factor in fighting the Ebola crisis that hit Liberia in 2014.

They currently have no job openings available, but do have fundraising opportunities.

  1. Hello Danielle,

    Good job on your post. The UNICEF is a really good organization, and I love how they believe in children getting the high quality education they need. It's great they have so many jobs across the country. It's a great experience to travel across the country to make a difference in the child's life.
