Child Life Line (“CLL”) is a not-for-profit Non-Governmental-Organisation (‘NGO’), registered with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission and based in Lagos, Nigeria. CLL was founded in 1994 with the aim of providing care and support to vulnerable and homeless children in Lagos.
CLL has a residential centre for boys at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, and a drop-in reception centre for homeless children at Gbagada which is open 5 days a week. At the residential centre, children are placed back in school or in vocational training, and at the drop-in centre, the children receive 2 meals a day (breakfast and lunch), have the opportunity to rest, shower and wash their clothes, and receive counselling.
CLL seeks, as its primary goal, to safely reunite and reintegrate children with their families and with society through its program of transitional support. Where it is impossible to place the child back with its family immediately, CLL seeks to ensure that the child is protected and cared for, either at its own residential centre for boys or with another NGO within the UNICEF-sponsored Nigerian Child Protection Network, and is able to continue with its formal education or start vocational training, to enable the child to develop into a self-reliant, independent individual.
THE ROLE (JOB SUMMARY):
Reporting to the Program Manager (PM), the M&E Officer is responsible for ensuring accurate and consistent data collection and reporting on the children that come to CLL for help and support and on any projects undertaken by CLL, as well as for the evaluation and analysis of the data collected, in order to develop and support the organisation’s programs and policies.
The M&E Officer also provides support to the PM and works closely with the Outreach Officer in supervising and educating the children that come to the drop-in centre on basic literacy, numeracy and life skills.
WHAT WE SEEK:
A committed, self-motivated individual, with training and experience in project or program monitoring and evaluation, good computer skills and familiarity with research methods, data collection and analysis, and who is able to turn quantitative findings into clear and useful reports. Additionally, we seek someone with good communication (written and oral) and interpersonal skills, who is able to work as an active member of a team, and willing to take on a range of tasks as necessary to meet the organisation’s goals.
