Save the Children - HBCC Project Job Vacancy: MEAL Officer, Bandung - West Java


MEAL Officer - HBCC Project

Save the Children in Indonesia is changing for the better. We've begun to build a national organization that aims to be a strong, local, and self-sustaining voice for children in Indonesia. To this end, SC Indonesia has been designated as an “Associate Member”. As ‘Associate Member’ Indonesia has been identified as part of the next way of new member development, which focuses on strengthening and localizing our voice for children in strategic middle-income countries. Indonesia has been authorized by member ballot to start fundraising locally as a first step towards building a financially sustainable local organization. Future work will also involve developing a strong local governance structure and building key partnerships with local government, the private sector, local civil society among others. The success of the pilot phase will set Indonesia on a pathway to full membership.

HBCC- Hygiene and Behavior Change Coalition- is an interactive messaging and behavior change communication to prepare and equip children and families to adopt and sustain behaviors that will reduce their health risk, specifically handwashing with soap. HBCC aims to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among children, caregivers, their families, and the wider communities and to build resilience from future outbreaks in West Java and in Jakarta. SC Indonesia will uphold critical implementation strategies to ensure high participation, increase community empowerment, and building on local capacity to secure ownership to response activities.

The project will also support the transition back to school and the messaging around health. Although Indonesia’s COVID-19 caseload is currently quite low and recently the Government has increased its testing capacity dramatically, we are assuming that cases will sharply increase before containment measures start taking effect. In responding to the COVID-19 crisis, SC Indonesia is closely engaged with the National Taskforce for COVID-19 which is led by the Indonesia National Disaster Management Agency.
