National Internship_ Resource Management, C4D

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.

For every child, a good start and hope

UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund, which has more than 10,000 staff members working in 190 countries and territories around the world. UNICEF began providing assistance to Myanmar in 1950 and has been working since then to improve the wellbeing of Myanmar children. More information on what we do in Myanmar is available at here.

UNICEF Myanmar is looking to strengthen its resource management system of communication for development materials, by way of mapping and collating existing government-approved materials and resources for each sector supported by UNICEF (health, nutrition, WASH, child protection, education, and children’s rights). Through enhancing resource management, UNICEF hopes to develop a database of ready-to-use resources organized by sector that can be quickly accessed and utilized.
