Mercy Corps seeks qualified candidates for the position of a Project Manager in her country office
Project Officer – Girls Opportunities for Advancing Literacy (GOAL)
Globally, Mercy Corps’ mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. This occurs when public, private and civil society actors interact with accountability, inclusive participation and mechanisms for peaceful change. Our global strategy 1) takes an integrated, systems approach, 2) works in partnership with diverse actors, 3) is grounded in evidence and learning, and 4) uses a gender lens. Last year, we improved the lives of 19 million people globally. Mercy Corps manages programs in 43 countries. Working in Nigeria since 2012, Mercy Corps works across 11 states with a focus on the Middle Belt and Northern states through partnerships with USAID, DfID, GHR Foundation, Nike Foundation, MasterCard, and the Foundation for Partnerships in the Niger Delta (PIND). Mercy Corps links peace-building with economic development, focusing on vulnerable populations such as adolescent girls.
The Girls Opportunities for Advancing Literacy (GOAL) program is transformative. It addresses several challenges faced by girls in Nigeria by ensuring secondary education for marginalized girls is equitable and scalable by increasing girls’ learning outcomes and directly supporting girls’ increased control of economic assets. GOAL will increase financial literacy and labor-market relevant skills for 1,800 marginalized female junior and senior school students (ages 15 to 19) in Ministry of Education (MoE) and Islamiyya schools in Kano State. To ensure scale and sustainability, GOAL will support the Government of Nigeria (GoN) to operationalize the girl-centered financial curriculum in 30 schools.Mercy Corps has strong relationships with the MoE and Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) who are increasing financial literacy in secondary schools under the GoN’s National Financial Inclusion Strategy for 2020.
GOAL will accelerate innovation in Nigeria through the operationalization of a girl-centered curriculum at the secondary school level that will enhance employment-relevant skills for marginalized girls in Kano State, Nigeria with a focus on strengthened financial literacy skills and financial inclusion. GOAL will: 1) develop proof of concept of a tailored financial literacy curriculum for female students in junior and senior secondary schools and 2) enhance transferable and entrepreneurism skills relevant to the labor market. GOAL will be supported at multiple-levels by the GoN, specifically the MoE and CBN, to build an evidence base of strategies and tactics for teaching female secondary school students employment-relevant skills to inform a government-led scale-up of financial literacy curriculum while providing girls a supportive environment through a Safe Space model linked to their schools. Each aspect of the GOAL program is designed to be innovative and test new models for adolescent girls in Nigeria. GOAL will:
Integrate financial education at the school level. The Safe Space and GOAL financial literacy curriculum will be girl-centered targeting the lowest common denominator in the social and academic hierarchies – older adolescent girls. Reinforce classroom learning with new technologies including SMS messaging groups. Positively influence the GoN operationalization of the financial education curriculum. Increase girls’ financial capabilities through direct savings and links with formal financial institutions.GOAL will link with Mercy Corps’ existing ENGINE (Educating Nigerian Girls in New Enterprises) program to provide girls with intensive business and entrepreneurship, leadership and life skills training. Under GOAL, Mercy Corps will allow girls who have graduated secondary school to enter into the 6-month business and entrepreneurship training program. The program will be weighted to the girls’ literacy and numeracy levels and will include business and entrepreneurial skills training and financial education comprising 75% of the time followed by leadership and life skills (25%). Once girls complete the 6 month business and entrepreneurship training course (4-6 hours per week), they will be eligible to opt-in to participate in the next stage of GOAL, starting their own microfranchise with either Coca-Cola or d.light solar lights. Girls who opt into one of the value chains will be provided additional product-specific training along with assets to start their microfranchise.
