Mentoring Programme “Together for Children”

Deadline: 25 August 2014
Open to: young leaders from from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Moldova
Venue: 21 – 27 September 2014 in Bucharest, Romania

Description

The mentoring program “Together for Children”  aims to strengthen the child-focused NGO coalitions from the partner countries to effectively address national and regional child rights and child protection concerns. The mentees will spend 5 days in Romania to visit Romanian projects and organisations. The mentees will be asked to record their experience and develop a mentoring diary to be edited in an article that will be published on appropriate channels (ex. ChildPact website or newsletter, online journals, blogs, etc.). The project is organized by ChildPact which represents 600 NGOs from 10 different countries. ChildPact members work with more than 500.000 vulnerable children and believe that as a non-sensitive issue, regional cooperation on child protection opens the door to new relationships and trust among regional stake-holders: opportunities to pursue peace and greater security in the region should start with children.

Eligibility

All young professional in the field of child protection, not older than 30 years from Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Moldova with motivation, enthusiasm and interest to choose a career in this field and fluent in English are welcomed to apply.

Costs

All costs will be covered by the organizers including international and local travelling, visas, accommodation in Bucharest, and meals.
