Child Safeguarding

  • Level 3 –  The responsibilities of this post may require the post holder to have regular contact with children and young people.
  • As part of these responsibilities the post holder will support the establishment of child safeguarding systems, promote a culture of keeping children safe, and ensure that potential harm to children (by our own staff and/or as a result of how we do our work) is identified and addressed on an ongoing basis

The USAID-funded Addressing Education in Northeast Nigeria (AENN) Activity is a three-year education project targeting 302,500 girls and boys in the age group 6 – 15. These target beneficiaries are from 225 communities comprised of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host community members in Borno and Yobe states. The AENN Activity is addressing their education and wellbeing needs through a combination of both formal and non-formal education interventions. This project aims to strengthen children and community resilience, and to enhance the capacity of duty bearers at all levels, spanning state to community, to support education. The Activity aims to provide quality learning opportunities to out-of-school girls and boys, as well as those who are already enrolled in formal schools. This project utilizes nationally endorsed non-formal education curriculum that is aligned to the state system and provides clear pathways to access formal school and vocational training opportunities.

Save the Children, FHI360 and Viamo are currently partnering in the implementation of the AENN Activity. The project is being implemented in eight Local Government Authorities (LGAs) spread across Borno and Yobe states. These are five LGAs in Borno State, namely Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC), Jere, Monguno, Dikwa and Hawul and three LGAs in Yobe, namely Damaturu, Bade and Potiskum. The activity targets two hundred and twenty-five (225) communities in these eight LGAs, and 150 communities will be reached in the first year of the implementation of the activity.


The Activity sets out to achieve four primary results:

  • Education authorities have increased capacity to plan, manage and oversee education services;
  • Safe education opportunities are available with a minimum package of instructional materials and supplies;
  • Teachers deliver conflict-sensitive, quality basic education instruction that improves psychosocial well-being and learning outcomes among all students and
  • Diverse community groups work together to equitably increase awareness of education opportunities for all.

The production of books in the local languages will go a long way in contributing to children’s literacy skills development. The Kanuri readers that will be developed will complement the Hausa language readers that are available through other programs such as RANA and will be used in community-level activities. They will also be available as supplementary reading materials for Non Formal Learning Centers. The readers will also contribute to the realization of Result Area 2: safe education opportunities are available with a minimum package of instructional materials and supplies.
