Job Announcement Staff for NOREC Exchange Program Project in 2023-2024 Exchange Opportunity-Learn and Work in Bangladesh Based at Nobo Jibon (New Life Charity) in Palashpole, Satkhira, Bangladesh

 

Background

 

KAPE is an education-focused agency that has steadily grown since its establishment in 1999. The agency is currently operating 20 projects and has funding from 16 donors including the European Union, UNICEF, Kinchan Foundation, Child Fund, Oaktree Foundation, The Asia Foundation, WeWorld, and the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport itself, among many others. In 2016, KAPE started to receive direct funding from MoEYS, the first and only agency to have ever achieved this honor, which speaks to our close relationship with the government. KAPE has developed strong internal financial controls and has regular external audits including major reviews of financial practices conducted by certified auditors as well as Global Audits. In 2022, KAPE fielded over 100 personnel in 8 provinces and had an annual funding portfolio of $4.3 million.

 

KAPE’s primary development objective focuses on promoting improvements in the formal education system in 3 main areas: (i) Educational Access, (ii) Educational Quality, and (iii) Governance. Based on the agency’s experience, investment in access and quality often has only muted effects if educational institutions lack good governance and accountability; thus, KAPE’s primary objective focuses on improving good governance in schools as the linchpin to our strategy to improve educational access and quality.
