UNICEF’s work focuses on promoting the rights and well-being of children, with an emphasis on the most vulnerable and marginalized children. Its programs include providing access to clean water and sanitation, nutrition and food security, education, child protection, and emergency response to natural disasters and conflicts.

In 1965, UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to improve the health and welfare of children worldwide.

About UN Jobs in Jordan-Child Protection Officer

At this level, it is not typical for incumbents to hold their positions for a lengthy amount of time.

The goal of the Child Protection program’s violence prevention component, which will be developed and implemented under the direction of the Child Protection Specialist, is to increase the capacity of children, families, and communities to support behaviors that will protect them and prevent violence in Jordan. These practices include good parenting and neighborhood-based social and behavioral change initiatives.

The Child Protection Officer will facilitate professional technical support through field visits, professional technical assistance through capacity building and coaching of educators and facilitators of implementing partners in camps and host communities, and professional technical, operational, and administrative assistance throughout the programming process for the prevention component of the child protection program.
