We are seeking a Child Protection and Anti-Trafficking Specialist with a training and capacity development mindset to work with our cohort of anti-trafficking grantee partners, to strengthen their programmatic expertise and network while also identifying areas of programmatic growth in their field. The Child Protection and Anti-Trafficking Specialist will strengthen the network of new, current, and alumni partners in India focused on child protection and anti-trafficking issues, linking and leveraging this group with relevant technical resources to ensure a strong GFC value-add to the cohort of antitrafficking organizations. The Child Protection and Anti-Trafficking Specialist will work closely with the India Launch Manager in India and report to the Regional Program Director for Asia in Washington, D.C.


Programmatic Capacity Development:

  • Build constructive and collegial relationships with grassroots partner leaders as the foundation for peer-to-peer capacity development and support, remembering always that GFC and grassroots organizations are equal partners;
  • Co-design with partners, programmatic outcomes that measure interventions focused on changing knowledge, attitudes and practices around trafficking and hazardous child labor;
  • Use field observations, content review, periodic site visits, and regular communication with partners, and partner feedback surveys, to collect data on partner progress against defined overarching indicators for the project;
  • Assess effectiveness of partners programs through one-on-one discussions and using GFC’s capacity assessment tool as a starting point.
  • Provide direct mentoring and coaching to partner leadership as needed and in alignment with personal expertise and experience;
  • Share relevant technical and programmatic resources contacts, news and information with partners through regular email communication and newsletters;
  • Ensure partners within the cohort are informed and equipped to meet grant monitoring and evaluation requirements, including internal GFC grant reporting and relevant institutional donor/project requirements. Provide direct assistance to partners who may need assistance to meet these requirements with the goal to strengthen partner capacities to engage with institutional donors;
  • Use the India Landscape Analysis (in process of being completed by November 30, 2018) and data to co-design programmatic outcomes; use the report as a guiding tool while liaising with partners and key stakeholders

Knowledge Sharing and Networks:

  • Represent GFC on issue-specific affinity groups, coordinating networks and coalitions;
  • Leverage personal expertise on national issues relevant to GFC’s strategy to support advocacy efforts and educate relevant external networks to support positive social change for children.
