New Job Vacancy At UNICEF Tanzania, August 2020- TA Operations Assistant (G-5)| Ajira360tz.com

As Tanzania moves steadily towards middle-income status, opportunities exist to ensure that the fruits of development are equitably distributed, and that the most vulnerable members of society – including children and women – are not left behind. With this in mind, UNICEF embarked on a new country programme, in partnership with the Government of Tanzania, in July 2016. This five-year programme, from 2016–2021, focuses on practical ways to realize the rights of children. UNICEF's work spans seven areas – health, HIV and AIDS, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), education, child protection and social policy. The programme's aim is that Tanzanian children, especially the most disadvantaged children and families, have access to and benefit from quality social services, knowledge and opportunities, and thereby have a fair chance in life.

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfil their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.
