    Intern/student Promoting Climate Smart programming

    Help a Child is a Christian, international relief and development organization, founded in 1968 in the Netherlands. Help a Child provides a future for children in need, their family and their entire community. By empowering vulnerable communities, we help them to change their own living conditions and opportunities in a sustainable way. Help a Child works in areas with a high incidence of poverty or in places where children and families are extra vulnerable due to disasters or (imminent) conflicts. Help a Child develops innovative programs, for example about youth & work, child development and the transition of relief help towards sustainable development. We work together with various Dutch, international and local partners. Help a Child works across India, Kenya, Malawi, Burundi, Rwanda, DRC, Uganda and South Sudan.

    Help a Child strives towards a positive impact for children and their families. In order to expand our impact, we want to invest in more Climate Smart sustainable interventions in our programming. Since Help a Child has its programs in the rural setting, we want to develop Climate Smart interventions for the farmer families and the community members in general. This can be related to promote more sustainable farm practises and climate mitigation efforts as well as promoting Climate Smart interventions for the benefit of the whole local community. With more focus on sustainable interventions, Help a Child sees a more resilient environment and brighter future for the children. We want to further develop and communicate our vision on climate smart programming. In order to facilitate and produce these climate smart communications, Help a Child is searching for a:
