CHF International has developed a strategy for the organization’s response to the Syria crisis, anchored in a field presence. Specifically, we are responding directly in Syria, intensifying CHF’s assistance to Syrian IDPs. This will be done through an approach to programming where projects will be focused on the sustainability rather than relief delivery. CHF intends to hire a full-time Protection Manager to implement an integrated protection program within our humanitarian assistance programming. The goal of our protection program is to advocate for the needs of vulnerable individuals, provide access to essential protection services, and increase the capacity of actors on the ground.
The overall responsiblity of the Protection Manager will be to develop, implement, and monitor integrated protection programming in Northeast Syria (NES) to improve the protection environment of vulnerable refugee, IDP and host communities. The Protection Manager is responsible for incorporating general protection, child protection (CP) and gender-based violence (GBV) activities based on identified needs and in coordination with other CHF International activities. The Protection Manager reports to the NES Director and is based in Derik.
